Mighty Be Forward Wanderers team manager Steve Madeira has hailed veteran midfielder Joseph Kamwendo for his professional attitude and outstanding performance during the FISD Challenge Cup semi-final clash against Moyale Barracks.
Kamwendo came off the bench to score a winning goal through a classing free kick in the dying minutes of the game as the game was at a 1-1 stalemate.
“He started on the bench and when he came on 10 minutes in the second half he raised the tempo of the game. His experience helped us a lot. We needed leadership as the game progressed and he did just that. Before scoring he had also taken another beautiful free kick. He should have scored two from free kicks,” Madeira told Wanderers website.
Madeira further said: “Dude [Kamwendo] is a genius. He has exceptional talent He has come back from suspension very strong and really working hard”.
He said the player knows what is required from him and he is doing exactly just like.
“That’s how players should behave” said Madeira.
Kamwendo was slapped with a four match suspension and K50,000.00 after being involved in a scuffle with Madeira immediately after being substituted in a league game against Silver Strikers which ended 1-1 and was played at the Kamuzu Stadium.
This forced the game to be stopped for several minutes before referee Mayamiko Kanjere ordered the two to leave the bench.
