Be Forward Wanderers have made a U-turn on plans to send two of their key players to Japan saying the two will go at the end of the 2016 Tnm Super League season.
The Nomads confirmed over the weekend that Joseph Kamwendo and Peter Wadabwa were to leave the country for Japan on Monday but they have since decided to keep the two players until 31 December when the current season is expected to end.
Nomads chairman George Chamangwana said that there is no logic for the two to leave Malawi for Japan now.
“We did not see any logic to allow the two players to leave the team for Japan with just a few weeks left before the end of the season, so we will keep them until the end of the season,” said Chamangwana.
He added that the two will leave in January after helping their team in the Tnm Super League and in the Luso TV Bus Ipite football fiesta which will be played on the weekend of 26th December this year and before a second leg on 2nd January next year.
Malawi24 understands that the deals were part of the agreements with sponsors secondhand car dealer Be Forward.
Wadabwa and the veteran midfielder Kamwendo have been very vital for the Nomads this campaign and they have already guided the club to a cup double having won the Fisd challenge cup and the Carlsberg cup.
Currently, Wadabwa is the Nomads’ leading goalscorer in the Tnm Super League with 16 goals and he has also finished as the top goalscorer in the just ended Fisd challenge cup which the Nomads won after defeating Kamuzu Barracks 4-3 on post-match penalties.
Flames midfielder Kamwendo returned to the club in September this year having been released by his club TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
He has been vibrant in midfield since returning to his club, no wonder he helped his side win the Carlsberg Cup and the Fisd Challenge Cup.
