A few weeks after off-loading midfielder Dave Banda, Black Leopards have turned to Malawi again to invite defender Foster Namwela for week-long trials.
The Mighty Wanderers sweeper is expected to leave for South Africa tomorrow for the trials to stretch from August 24-30, said Leopards local scout Kondie Msungama.
â€œI have the invitation letter which Leopards have addressed to Wanderers chairperson seeking the release of the player,â€ Msungama said on Thursday.
â€œLeopards have sent an air ticket. As for Dave, the Leopards chairperson David Thidiela has assured that he will meet all his contractual obligations,â€ said Msungama.
Leopards released Banda on the pretext that the clubâ€™s quota for foreign players was full. But now Msungama said Bandaâ€™s departure created room for one more foreigner.
â€œThidiela says he has nothing against Malawian players and that is why he still has Harry Nyirenda,â€ he said.
