Kanyenda cut ties with Russian club

Malawi  national team experienced striker Esau ‘Black Mamba’ Kanyenda has finally parted ways with his Russian out-fit Dynamo Briansk Fc after terminating his contract with the club on Wednesday which was supposed to end in June.

The Flames hit-man terminated the contract after playing for various clubs in Russia for a period of nine years.

“I can indeed confirm that l have terminated my contract with Dynamo Briansk FC. My contract was supposed to end in June but  after further consultations with my family, friends and relatives, l thought it wise to terminate the contract because l have other opportunities somewhere,” he told Nyasa Timesat his residence in Area 47 Lilongwe.

He said there are a number of teams in South Africa, Angola who are gunning for his signature but he stressed that he would need to make a huge amount of thinking before committing himself.

“There is no need for me to rush. I have to weigh offers before committing myself to sign for any club,” said Kanyenda, who recently rejected to sign for a Vietnam club.

“Football is a short career, and the boys from Vietnam were offering me much lower money comparing with the cash l was getting in Russia,” said Kanyenda, who is currently training with Silver Strikers in order to keep himself physically fit.


Kanyenda started his career in 1998 with Malawi’s first division Welfare FC in Dedza before joining Dwasco from 1999-2001.

From 2001-2003, Kanyenda played for Jomo Cosmos in South Africa before moving to Russia in 2003 where he signed for Rostov FC.

In 2005, the Flames versatile striker joined Locomotive Moscow. While in Russia, Kanyenda also played for Kamaz FC.

While in Russia, Kanyenda was recognized as the first ever African ambassador to represent the Russian Black Sea Resort city of Sochi’s bid to host the 2014 winter Olympics bid.
