Silver Strikers goalkeeper Amadu Ali has dumped TNM Super League champions Silver Strikers for Kamuzu Barracks after enduring a frustrating season at the bankers.
Impeccable sources confided that Ali has joined the team alongside former Bullets FC and Evirom striker Harold Zulu, Pilirani Makupe, Asedi Ajasi and former Mozambique based professional Vincent Chinthenga.
Chinthenga confirmed that he has joined the military side who were favourites to win last season Super League title but ended up on fourth position.
He said his decision to join Kamuzu Barracks was made with the intention of securing a job.
“Yes I joined them on Sunday last week butt we are just waiting for the bosses to arrange everything in order for us to go for military training,” Chinthenga said.
The former Bumbwe Research striker said all was set for him to undergo military training.
“They promised us that this week we are going. I filled all the forms for me to be a soldier. It is now confirmed that I am now with KB.”
Ali who, was a promising goalkeeper for the national team, dropped on the pecking order to Charles Swini at Silver and his chance of playing first team football season would have been limited.
His first Super League team was Escom but lack of game forced him to join Azam Tigers in 2007 and won the Goalkeeper of the Super League season the Standard Bank best goalkeeper award the same season.
He moved to Silver Strikers from Tigers at a transfer fee of K800,000 in 2009 and in 2010 former Flames coach Kinnah Phiri handed him his first national team cap against Rwanda as a substitute to Swadick Sanudi.
He never disappointed forcing Kinnah to draft him into the Flames squad for the East and Central Africa Senior Challenge Cup in Dar-es-Salaam.
But the coming in of Swini from Tigers gave the 28-year-old goalkeeper stiff competition and was sidelined national team engagements.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
