Mighty Wanderers first choice goalkeeper Richard ‘MG 2’ Chipuwa will be out of action for up to two weeks after dislocating his fingers during their TNM Super League encounter with EPAC F.C last Sunday played at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe.
Chipuwa went for a scan at Kamuzu Central Hospital and the initial assessment confirmed that he would be out for two weeks.
“I am now feeling better, and doctors have given me two weeks to rest meaning that l will be back in the pitch after fourteen days,” said Chipuwa who will be replaced by veteran goalkeeper Vales Kamzere.
Wanderers midfielder Joseph Kamwendo said it was a “huge blow” to lose the influential goalkeeper at this stage of the season.
Kamwendo said Chipuwa has been in “fantastic form”. He however said “Kamzere has never let us down at all.”
Meanwhile, Chipuwa dismissed his link to defending champions Silver Strikers, saying he is well at Lali Lubani Road.
“To say the truth, Silver Strikers showed an interest in me, but my heart remains with Wanderers and let me assure the Nomads family that l am a Nomad and lam happy at Lali-Lubani Road,” said Chipuwa.
He affirmed his commitment to the Standard Bank Cup winners and says that he has no plans to leave.
“I haven’t got plans to change clubs.”
After failing to secure the service of Chipuwa, the Bankers have roped in Escom United goalkeeper Charles Swini.
According to Super League Association of Malawi ( Sulom) general secretary Williams Banda, the Bankers and the electricians were supposed to agree on the transfer fee for Swini last weekend.
In other notable transfers, Civo United Welani Nyirenda has moved to Big Bullets while Azam Tigers duo of Mapopa ‘Kent’ Msukwa and Mike Kaziputa are with Mighty Wanderers.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
