Nigerian striker Amos Bello could be out of action at Be Forward Wanderers for nearly two months after suffering ligament collateral whilst playing for the Nomads during their 1-0 game against Nyasa Big Bullets last Saturday in the Wafa-Wafa Big 4 Football Bonanza in Lilongwe.
Be Forward Wanderers Team Manager Samuel Matukuta confirmed the injury and told Nyasa Times : “The recovery is expected to take four to eight weeks.”
This means the towering striker is likely to miss at least the opening games in the 2017 Super League.
Bello, who has just extended his contract with the Nomads was outstanding in their first pre-season game against Lake Valley.
However, he told Nyasa Times that he will be doing light training like going to the gym in order to keep himself in shape.
“This is a setback, but lam confidence that l will be back soon. This season l want to help my team to win the championship,” said Bello.
Meanwhile, a sigh of relief to the Nomads following news that their defender Harry Nyirenda, who also limped off the field of play against Bullets game is now fit.
Matukuta said Nyirenda’s injury was not serious and that he will resume training this week.
The Nomads have JabulaniLinje, KhumboNg’ambi, MalumboGondwe on the injury list.
Boston Kabango, who has been out for several months is also back and working on his fitness at the gym.
