“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.
