Malawi’s hot prospect Gabadinho Frank Mhango has gone back to South Africa to finalise his deal with Bloemfontein Celtic.
Bullets’ General Secretary Higer Nkandawire said the 20-year-old player who initially went to South Africa to undergo trials at Amazulu F.C and then Celtic, would be back in the country on Wednesday.
“He has been called by Celtic to do some paper work”, said Nkandawire in an interview with Zodiak during TNM Soccer show.
Meanwhile, Bullets FC coach Eddington Ng’onamo has insisted that veterans Heston Munthali and Fischer Kondowe are still Bullets players and they are in his plans.
Ng’onamo said this after eyebrows were raised following the two players’ exclusion from the squad that beat Silver Strikers 1-0 in the Carlsberg Cup at the Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.
The players were not even on the bench.
Ng’onamo said he left out the two players due to their performance in training.
“We have not axed them from the team. When choosing a squad for each match, we look at the players’ performance in training. These two players did not work hard in training during the past week. They showed no commitment,” he said.
Ng’onamo could, however, not give reasons why the players showed lack of commitment.
“If they work hard in training next week, they will be back in the team,” he said.
Commenting on Gabadingho’s dip in form, Ng’onamo said the player needs time.
“Football is tough. Every player has bad spells and Gaba is also having one. He will be back to his best. He just needs time,” he said.
Bullets will face Kamuzu Barracks in the quarterfinal of the Carlsberg Cup this midweek.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
