Tigers FC have officially unveiled the former Nyasa Big Bullets centre back George Nyirenda who has been playing in Namibia’s elite league side after completing the signing of his two months contract agreement deal with the Kau-Kau boys in undisclosed fee.
Nyirenda, who started his football career at his home village Nkhotakota with Dwangwa United before he joined Tigers from 2011-2012 season, came back in the country few months ago from Namibia for off season break.
But according to the former Zimbabwe’s Caps United star, he has decided to sign with Tigers for two months as he is waiting for the Namibian league which has been delayed due to some issues involving promoted division teams to be sorted out.
Said Nyirenda: “I have signed a short contract with Tigers because I want to keep myself fit as I am waiting for our league in Namibia to kick off.
“I could’ve signed with any team but I thought it wise to negotiate with Tigers because that’s the only team I felt that it can give me such offer. This is where I started my top career and I always take the club as my other family because the whole executive knows more about my behaviour and as such I want to help the team in their remaining league games”
Speaking in an interview when he was officially unveiling the player at their training ground on Monday at Chilomoni Stadium, Tigers Technical Director Robin ‘Abambo’ Alufandika said he was very much excited with the coming back of Nyirenda which he also described his presence to be vital to the team as it will help to bring positive impact to the club both on and off the field among the players.
“George is our son and having him in camp means a lot because he is far much better experienced compared to other players so we are very hopeful that he will be using his experience in encouraging his fellow players in terms play as well as discipline wise which is always paramount in football.
“We’ve given him two months as he requested and any time when he will wish to leave the team to Namibia will release him so that he can go and continue his professional football,” said Alufandika.
Tigers is remaining with six games in which four of them will be played at home while the rest are away fixtures.
