Malata left Silver as a free agent.

The player was released after the Bankers failed to meet Malata’s demand of K5 million signing on fee when renewing his contract.

Silver general secretary Thabo Chakaka-Nyirenda said they had given the player consent to join Wanderers.

“He verbally told us that Wanderers have offered him K6 million signing on fee,” he said.

Malata who was unveiled at Kamuzu Stadium  in Blantyre after putting pen to paper earlier at Lali Lubani Road, the Wanderers Club House  said he was “so happy” to have signed for one of the biggest clubs in Malawi.

“It’s a dream come true for me,” he said, accompanied by his a girl friend.

Malata said the opportunity to work with tactician Yasin Osman and play with  some of the best players in the country was simply “too good to turn down.”

Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao described Malata as a “fantastic”  signing.

“We are pleased to announce that Wanderers has signed Lucky Malata for three years. We are happy and impressed with his services,” Butao.

Wanderers Team Manager Steven Madeira described Malata as one of the skilful players.

“He is a good player and looking forward to work with him. His defending is perfect and he is also a hard worker,” said Madeira.

Wanderers are expected to sign more players, the club officials hinted.

The problem with Malawian players is that they don’t appreciate the dynamics of football. Lucky has forgotten that he was disliked by the same people who are now celebrating that they have signed a good defender. Just to remind Lucky on the fateful day at kamuzu stadium when he blundered and caused flames to lose against Zimbabwe. The loss costed Young Chimodzi’s job as national team coach yet the same Young natured him to be where he is now. Money alone does not buy freedom. As former captain of Silver Strikers, he should have felt embarrassed to have failed to… Read more »
