In an interview with Nyasa Times, Chawinga described the championship and golden boot award as a great achievement in her life.
She said when she was joining the club her dream was to help the team to become champions of one of the competition and make sure she win a golden boot award.
“Honestly am short of words, this is a dream come true. God is wonderful indeed, it always feels good to win the championship and individual award in a foreign land and in your debut season,” said Chawinga.
She added the silverware and golden boot award has given her courage and motivation to continue working hard in order to win such awards in the future.
“I want to make history in China just like the way I did in Sweden and I am very much sure that God will make this possible. My targey is to impress my club officials so that when my contract gets to expire they can give me another years,” said Chawinga
