Former Malawi national team and Be Forward Wanderers striker Jimmy Zakazaka has rejoined Nyasa Big Bullets and signed a seven months contract up until March 30 2018.
Zakazaka has become the second player to be signed with Bullets in the second round of the 2017 season after the team also signed Zimbabwean left winger Silva Tshawe at a one year deal two weeks ago.
The news will provide a further boost to Bullets, who are pushing for the title campaign after their win in Carlsberg Cup, and Zakazaka’s arrival offers new coach Rodgers Yasin and his assistant Elia Kananji more options up front.
After the signing ceremony on Tuesday, Zakazaka nicknamed ‘Weapon of Mass Destruction’ told Nyasa Times that he is very delighted to be back at Bullets camp because that’s where his heart and roots belongs.
He added that the competition with his fellow strikers will be tough but he’s ready to fight for his position.
“Yes, the team has got quality strikers but I am not shaken because Bullets technical panel is always different from Wanderers when fielding players. At Bullets coaches feature a player based on how he performed at the training so I will try my level best to work hard so
that I should have game time,” said Zakazaka taking a dig as his former club.
The former Free State Stars said he will always put much concentration to his play in order to increase his chances of extending the contract come next year.
Bullets General Secretary Albert Chigoga said they have decided to sign Jimmy because of his experience which he said will help to model the young upcoming strikers at the club.
“For the lads to make a grade there is need for them to have experienced players such as Chiukepo’s and Zakazaka,” said Chigoga.
Chigoga said the team is “delighted” to have Zakazaka’s ambition and experience back with Bullets.
“I have no doubt that he will be important in the second part of the season,” he said.
