…in talks with Tigers for Chester’s services
Mighty Wanderers fans have got all the reasons to smile following revelations that sponsors Be Forward will bring on board a Japanese player to play for the club next season.
The Nomads’ trustee Rashid Gaffar broke the news on Saturday durung the team’s executive committee polls saying Genk Nakamura will be the second foreign player to play for the Carlsberg Cup champions.
“We are not yet done in the transfer market because we are about to bring a new player from Japan who will play for us in the upcoming league campaign.”
“Our sponsors will make all the arrangements and we will see him wearing the blue jersey,” said Gaffar.
Wanderers’ general secretary Mike Butao confirmed the development saying Be Forward will carter for everything.
“Be Forward have just informed us that we will have a professional player from Japan and that they will carter for the expenses so we are just waiting for him to arrive,” he said. Nakamura will follow the Cameronian Lionel Atsu who signed for the club last season but left by mutual consent.
On adding more players, Butao said: “We have brought in Rafique Namwera and Enerst Tambe from Wizards FC and Peter Wadabwa who was a free agent. We are also optimistic of loaning Joseph Kamwendo who has retaliated his desire to play for us this season.
“Apart from the players on board, we are likely to make two more new signings because at the moment, we are in talks with Azam Tigers to sign their midfielder Yamikani Chester so we are very much active in the window,” explained Butao.
The Nomads were the biggest spenders in the just ended season in which they brought in 13 new players but failed to win the league as they finished fourth.
