Mighty Wanderers captain Foster Namwela is back from South Africa after failing trials at Black Leopards, his manager has confirmed.
On Monday, scout Kondie Msungama said Leopards opted for a Zimbabwean defender who was also on trials alongside the Flames player.
â€œI am not surprised that he was not signed as Leopards coach [Sunday Chidzambwa] is also from Zimbabwe. Any way, we have no issue, we are moving on. All is not lost for Foster,â€ Msungama said in a telephone interview from Tanzania where he is on a business trip.
Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda confirmed that Namwela rejoined the Nomads on Friday and featured in the 1-0 defeat of Escom United.
â€œAs to how the trials were, that is beyond us. All we did was to release the player after receiving Leopardsâ€™ letter. We are just glad to have our captain back,â€ Kanyenda said about Namwela who also passed trials at Zimbabweâ€™s Platinum FC last year only for the deal to fall through.
Leopards have a Malawian player Harry Nyirenda.
