Russell Mwafulirwa to revive career in Denmark
Malawi’s striker Russell Mwafulirwa is set to revive his career blighted by injuries after former Danish Flames coach Kim Splidsboel facilitated his trials for Danish third tier outfit Rishoj Boldkclub.
This will be Mwafulirwa’s second stint in Europe after Sweden should deal materialise.
Splidsboel confirmed in a telephone interview from the Scandinavian country this week that he recommended the gangling former Silver Strikers striker for the Danish club.
“I am not an agent. I just recommended him. This is a striker who scored in my last game for Malawi,” Splidsboel said.
“Malawi is my second home and I would love to coach again.”
Mwafulirwa, who had trials at Silver recently, last played competitive football in 2012 at Swedish second division side IK Sleipner.
He had revived his career which stalled after opting out of staying at Swedish top side club IFK Norrkoping.
Splidsboel said Mwafulirwa had high prospects after being a free agent.
The striker, who made his name while playing for the then South Africa’s top team, Jomo Cosmos after joining it from Silver under agent Ben Chiwaya, will follow in the footsteps of other Malawian players defender Clement Kafwafwa and midfielder Joseph Kamwendo.
Silver Strikers coach Francis Songo said Mwafulirwa’s move to Europe was not a surprise as he was cautious on tackles while he was on trials.
