Nyasa Big Bullets yesterday unveiled new-signing midfielder Nelson Kangunje as the goal-drought hit giants hope to turn another chapter in their worst start to a new season in recent years.
The former Civo United player was unveiled at Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC) offices yesterday after sealing a two-year deal with the People’s Team.
Bullets main strikers Muhammad Sulumba, Diverson Mlozi, Mussa Manyenje and Collen Nkhulambe have fired blanks in four matches in the 2017 season.
The former Costa do Sol player’s arrival is, therefore, a relief for the impatient red side of Blantyre town supporters who thronged the sponsors’ offices to witness Kangunje sealing the deal.
Bullets general secretary Albert Chigoga said they were confident that the new-signing will help solve the goal-drought puzzle.
Kangunje, on the other hand, said he was ready to serve his new team as he starts life at Big Bullets.
Bullets face Civil Sporting Club this Sunday at Kalulu Stadium, but Kangunje will watch the match from the terraces as he is set to start training on Tuesday next week.
The midfielder, who can also play as a striker, is back from Mozambique just five months in his two-year deal with Mocambola side Costa do Sol in January alongside former Mafco striker Richard Mbulu.
The player’s manager Jimmy Linje said Kangunje and Costa do Sol parted ways on mutual agreement.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) player transfer matching system manager Casper Jangale said the player can join a team of his choice if his former club cleared him as a free agent. n
