Dan Chitsulo, the longest-surviving Malawian footballer in Europe, has signed for SV Bergrisch Gladbash 09, his sixth German club in over 12 years.
The former Civo United striker-turned-midfielder has since leaving Malawi in 2000 played for FC Köln reserves, VfL Osnabrück, Rot Weiss Ahlen, Rot-Weiss Essen 14 (1) and SC Preußen Münster.
“When it comes to football, it is all good…I signed for them in January after a one-year injury lay-off,” the 30-year-old Chitsulo said on his Facebook page on Wednesday.
Another Malawian footballer in Europe is defender Clement Kafwafwa who plays for Denmark’s First Division side Lolland Faster Alliance. He first moved from the now-defunct MDC United for Holbaek in 2003.
