……….Not done yet on the market……..
Mighty Mukuru Wanderers Chief Executive Officer, Chancy Gondwe has confirmed that the Club is still on the market for the best players.
Gondwe made the statement on Thursday in Blantyre during the unveiling ceremony of the two new signings.
Wanderers have signed former Civil Service United Centre-back, Lawrence Chaziya and Dalisto Khungwa from Mighty Tigers.
The Nomads have roped in the Flames defender who made his mark during the delayed 2021 African Cup Of Nations in January last year on free transfer after the expiry of his 10-month contract with Jordan top-flight side, Hussein FC while Khungwa has joined the Club on an disclosed fee.
Mighty Tigers have confirmed the departure of their goalkeeper who joined the Club in 2020.
“All the best to Goalkeeper Dalitso Khungwa for joining Mighty Mukuru Wanderers. Dalitso Khungwa joined Mighty Tigers in 2020 from Chitipa United.2021 TNM Super League Season, Dalitso Khungwa was outstanding helping the team to avoid relegation,” reads the announcement by the Club.
Despite the two signings bringing the total number of new signings to 7, Gondwe said they anticipate to sign two more players before the season starts.
“We are not done yet on the market, we anticipate to bring two more big names to the club. We want to have a strong squad here in Malawi and beyond. We are targeting best players. Any star we see on the market, we are bringing them to the club so that we can compete with the best,” Wa Ganyu quoted the CEO who failed to disclose the names of the players.
We need to close the gap with Bullets- Harrison.
With just short period of time at the Club, Mark Harrison has managed to end Mighty Mukuru Wanderers’ drought of trophies by beating their cross-town rivals in the final of the Airtel Top-8 Cup on penalties after a barren draw.
However, the Coach clearly said that his team is far behind Nyasa Big Bullets in terms of administration and performance on the ground and the team might need 2 years to close the gap.
With Mphatso Kamanga, Gaddie Chirwa, Emmanuel Nyirenda, Christopher Jakama Kumwembe, Dalisto Khungwa and Lawrence Chaziya in their custody already, Mark feels like they are slowly closing the gap.
“The squad is very strong. Its work in progress, we need to close the gap with Bullets, we have a lot of work to do. This makes my job very easy to have quality players. Bullets has been the most successful team and we need to overtake them,” said Mark.
Lawrence Chaziya is expected to partner with Miracle Gabeya in the heart of the Wanderers’ defence.
