Battle-hardened forward Esau Kanyenda has been offered a one-year contract extension by his South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) club Polokwane City.
Kanyenda, 34, yesterday confirmed that the club has given him up two weeks to make a decision.
“My contract expires at the end of the season and management called me to say they still value my contribution and made the offer.
“I know that I am in the twilight of my career now, but I wouldn’t resist the temptation of one more season,” he said in an interview from South Africa yesterday.
The striker, has had a distinguished playing career that saw him play in Russia for close to a decade. He also had a stint in Denmark in the lower league.
At the peak of his career, Kanyenda starred for Jomo Cosmos in South Africa and FC Rostov in Russia where he was spotted by giants Lokomotiv Moscow where he became the first Malawian player to play in the Uefa Champions League.
Speaking in a brief telephone interview from South Africa yesterday, Polokwane owner Johnny Mogaladi said: “Kanyenda is a true professional who also offers inspiration to the up-and-coming players and I would still love to have him here.”
