Like old vintage wine, discarded Flames midfielder Joseph Kamwendo appears to be getting better with age like old vintage wine.
The former Flames captain last Thursday scored his third league goal which inspired his DR Congo Super League side Don Bosco to a 3-1 win over Pacific FC in Lubumbashi.
On Saturday, Bosco held second-placed St. Eloi Lupopo to a two-all draw. They are fifth in the Group Two of the 10-team Vodacom Super League with 13 points from nine games.
“I am enjoying my game at Don Bosco and scoring three goals in nine appearances has been a great motivation. Over and above that, I am happy that I am enjoying game time.
“They are also appreciating my contribution; hence they have handed me the number 10 jersey,” said Kamwendo who is on loan from giants TP Mazembe.
Although they are fifth, Don Bosco have played fewer games compared to the top two teams—Sanga Balende and Lupopo—who have played 13 and 12 games respectively. Mazembe are third with 21 points from nine games. They are the only side yet to taste defeat.
Kamwendo believes his revival will further boost his chances for Flames’ recall.
Flames coach Ernest Mtawali recently hinted on the prospects of recalling the battle-hardened midfielder. n
