…says he will die for the club…
Former Flames and Orlando Pirates midfielder Joseph Kamwendo says he will rejoin Be Forward Wanderers and is ready to die for the club.
According to one of Malawi’s daily papers, the legendary midfielder, who terminated his one year deal with South Africa’s National First Division side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila due to payment issues, says he is the ‘Messiah’ the Nomads have been waiting for and he is eager to save them from their current woes.
“I have come to save my people. I have realized that it’s better to return home and save my people before I retire from active football,” he was quoted by the Nation newspaper.
Commenting on the current problems at Wanderers, Kamwendo said supporters of the club deserve better things, adding that he will start training with the club even though he is yet to be offered a contract.
“I am going to die for them. I will start training immediately. I am a Nomad and there is no need for me to have a contract first before I start training,” he was quoted.
On his part, Wanderers’ Chairman Gift Mkandawire, though non committal, said Kamwendo is welcome at Lali Lubani.
“He is a Nomad and we are happy to see him back. He will always be welcome as this is his home,” he told the local media.
If he is signed, it will be a massive boost for the Nomads who lost some key players before the start of the new season.
The 2017 Super League champions lost Peter Wadabwa, Yamikani Chester and Precious Sambani.
Wanderers have this season registered back to back defeats to Silver Strikers and Blue Eagles in the Airtel Top 8 Cup and Super League respectively.
