Former Bvumbwe Research and Mighty Wanderers, Vincent Chinthenga, has opted to join a military team, Kamuzu Barracks, for the forthcoming Super League season.
Chinthenga returned home in November last year after terminating his contract with a Mozambican top league, Ferroviaro de Nampula, as he had failed to secure first team football following his recovery from injury.
He said Kamuzu Barracks (KB) had expressed great interest in him than any other team.
He also said job prospect in the Malawi Defence Force was an irresistible bargain he could not let pass.
“You know this is the only team which has expressed interest in me. To add on to that they have promised me an opportunity for job which is very important as most teams are struggling to sustain their players,” he said.
Chinthenga led Bvumbwe Research to Super League promotion from lower Premier Division and won the Golden Boot Award while on loan from Mighty Wanderers in the 2012-13.
The Lilongwe based KB, were in the run for their maiden Super League title but ended up on fourth position with 47 points in the 15-team-league after inconsistent performance in the second round.
Several Super League players such as Former Wanderers striker Joel Chipofya and Silver Strikers forward Harvey Mkacha also moved to Kamuzu Barracks in search of job prospects.
Elvis Kafoteka, former Flames vice-captain also joined another Mzuzu-based military club, Moyale Barracks late last year after being offered an opportunity for job.
