After being reduced to a sideshow for over five months, Flames battle-hardened forward Esau Kanyenda is set to bounce back in action next week having acquired his work permit from the South African Home Affairs Office.
Kanyenda signed for Polokwane City at the start of the season, but could not play because he did not have a work permit and his international transfer certificate (ITC) had not been issued by the Danish Football Association where he last played for B95.
The 32-year-old forward could not hide his excitement in an interview with Nation Online, saying he cannot wait to bounce back.
“I am now relieved that my work permit is ready. I cannot wait to bounce back in action,” said Kanyenda on Wednesday.
He also said his ITC has been issued by the Danish FA.
He is set to make his official debut for Polokwane City on February 13 against FC AK in a Nedbank Cup fixture.
On his future with the Flames, Kanyenda said he is still committed to serving his country for the next couple of years.
He last featured for the Flames in a 2013 Africa Cup of Nations 1-0 defeat to Ghana’s Black Stars.
