I can’t promise the moon yet, says Amos Bello


Be Forward Wanderers striker Amos Bello has spoken candidly about his long awaited return to the football pitch, insisting fans should not except too much of him.

Bello had been on the sidelines for 6 months following a nasty thigh injury sustained while playing against Nyasa Big Bullets in the Big 4 Wafawafa Bonanza.

Amos Bello: I am doing better.

He only made his return to training last week.

Speaking in an interview with Malawi24 on Thursday, the Nigerian attacker opened up on his return to the fold and warned fans he may not be at the level usually expected of him.

“To be honest am doing better, let me use the word better not perfect so I can’t promise the moon. To get my full fitness back it will take lots of individual work in the gym. I cannot rely on the team training alone,” said Bello.

In his absence, veteran forward Essau Kanyenda has stolen the show after netting a total of 6 goals in 5 successive fixtures. A development that Bello applauded as he is not thinking about the battle for places upfront.

“I am happy for Kanyenda because he is doing a great job taking the forward. It’s good that when I am out somebody should step up and do the job, that’s why we are top of the table in the league.

“Am not thinking about competition for places, we work as a team so am back to help the team. If the coach decides to give some minutes I will try to convince him, because it’s not only about fitness. It’s about what I can do in a given time, if I get 10 to 15 minutes and deliver for the team, its ok for me,” said Bello.

Wanderers host Premier Bet Wizards in the Super League this Saturday when Bello is hoping to get a chance for his season debut.
