Be Forward Wanderers wayward forward Amos Bello has reported at his club almost two months after going absent without leave (Awol).
Confirming the development, Wanderers vice-chairperson Gift Mkandawire said the Nigerian player reported back last Friday.
“He has not explained why he disappeared all this time. He will definitely face disciplinary action. We cannot tolerate such behaviour among our players,” he said.
However, the Nigerian yesterday denied taking a French leave, claiming that he sought the club’s permission when he left for Lilongwe.
But assistant coach Elia Kananji said the technical panel never gave the player permission to leave.
“He just left. We just heard that he was in Lilongwe while others said he went back home in Nigeria,” said Kananji, who was in charge when head coach Eddingtone Ng’onamo was in Denmark.
“This shows that some players lack discipline. There is no way a player, more especially a professional like him, can just leave without permission.”
Bello became a household name at Nomads after taking the 2016 Super League opening games by storm.
He announced his arrival with a fine performance in the Nomads’ opening game against Silver Strikers which the Nomads won 2-1 and provided an assist in one of the goals .
He followed this up with another impressive performance in the Blantyre derby when he scored for the Nomads in the one-all draw against rivals Nyasa Big Bullets.
But of late, the player has struggled and he has been reduced to a third choice striker following the fine form of the club’s top goal scorer Peter Wadabwa who forms a lethal combination with Jimmy Zakazaka. n
