Civo United have expressed satisfaction with the footballing skills of Victor Mpinganjira during training sessions at the club.
Mpinganjira is on a-six-month loan at Civo after failing to get regular playing at Be Forward Wanderers under coach Elia Kananji.
“He is fitting in well. He is still young and is showing great potential. We expect great things from him. Of course, we are yet to see him in a competitive match, but so far so good,” said Civo United coach Oscar Kaunda.
Mpinganjira is tipped to replace Jabulani Linje, who was bought by Wanderers.
Civo general secretary Rashid Ntelera also expressed satisfaction with the progress made by Mpinganjira, saying he might just be missing the link the club wanted.
Ntelera could not commit himself if they want to buy Mpinganjira once the loan expires.
“The arrangement now is that we take care of his salary and other upkeep allowances like what he was getting at Wanderers. We can discuss a permanent deal depending on how Wanderers feel at the end of the loan period and also depending on his performance here,” said Ntelera.
Wanderers vice-general secretary Christopher Kananji confirmed the loan deal arrangement, saying the status quo will remain so unless otherwise.
“He [Victor] is our player and the arrangement with Civo is purely loan. We cannot talk of a permanent deal until such a time there is that need,” said Kananji.
