Sulumba exit will make ‘no difference’ to Nomads: Mlimbika,  Zakazaka, Namwera, Kamwendo back in training

Mighty Be Forward Wanderers captain Francis ‘FM 7’ Mlimbika says Muhammed Sulumba’s transfer to rivals Nyasa Big Bullets will make “no difference” to the blues this season and described the morale in the Nomads camp on the high climax following the coming in of former stars, who have started training with the team ahead of the 2016 season.

Sulumba this week signed a three-year deal with Bullets, following the expiry of his season-long deal at Lali Lubani Road from Blantyre United.

The People’s Team unveiled Sulumba in Blantyre on Thursday where the club’s chairperson Samuel Chilunga said they were honoured to have him in their team.

Mlimbika said Nomads have got plenty of options, plenty of new players blending with experienced stars .

Former Nomads stars midfielder Joseph Kamwendo, Foster Namwera, Jimmy Zakazaka, Cuthbert Sinetre and a Ghananian player were spotted at Kamuzu Stadium training with the Nomads.

In an exclusive interview, the lion-heartened left back told Nyasa Times that the presence of the vastly experienced players have lifted the morale in  the camp.

Mlimbika  stressed the Nomads fans that the departure Sulumba to Bullets will not affect them at all.

“The coming in of Kamwendo, Foster, Sinetre, and Jimmy has motivated us. These are the players who have been in this game for a long period of time and playing with them always motivate young and upcoming players. Let me assure our supporters that this season Wanderers will come out hard and the departure of Sulumba is not been felt in our camp at all since we have a huge squad,” said Mlimbika.

The Flames leftback also praised the presence of Peter Wadabwa who has experience.

“He is one of the best strikers in the country, and his presence alone has also changed things in our camp. These are the type of players that lift you when the chips are down during competitive games,” said Mlimbika.

During Thursday’s training, the players looked more confident, as Kamwendo led them to different exercises.

The inspirational captain could be seen sharing jokes with the entire squad, as they were jogging  to strengthen their muscles.

Adding spice to the training were hundreds of supporters that trooped Kamuzu Stadium to cheer their players.

The fans, who most of them were clad in their usual blue and white colours were chanting, “ Tiwalandire Tiwalandire alendo athu ( welcoming their old veterans and new signings).

No Danish move

Meanwhile, Wanderers have blocked their former striker Muhammad Sulumba’s trip to Denmark for trials with Second Division side Herforge Boldklub, according to press reports.

Sulumba and Nomads’ defender Peter Nselema were scheduled to leave for Denmark on March 18 after being spotted by the Danish club’s coach Lars Jensen during his sojourn in the country in December last year when he spotted four players.

Nomads have  reportedly struck out Sulumba’s name out of bitterness following his move to join Bullets.

Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao explained that  the agreement for the trials is between the Nomads  and their Danish partners.

“This is meant to benefit our players.  Sulumba is not our player now,” said Butao.

Sulumba said he is not bitter with the Nomads’ move.

Apart from Sulumba and Mselema, Herfolge also spotted defender Ted Sumani and midfielder Isaac Kaliyati who are also earmarked for trials between next month and April.
