Mighty Wanderers FC captain and Flames centre-back Foster Namwela has said he is confident of clinching a deal with South Africaâ€™s Premier Soccer League side Black Leopards.
In an interview before he left for South Africa on Sunday, Namwela said he will give out something extra so as to be offered a deal after the week-long trials.
â€œSuch a chance comes once in a lifetime; hence, I will try my best to impress the Leopards technical panel,â€ said Namwela.
He also said the presence of compatriot and former Wanderers teammate Harry Nyirenda will be a source of inspiration.
â€œHarry is like a brother to me and I am sure he will be a source of inspiration during the trials,â€ he said.
Namwela expressed gratitude to facilitator of the trials Kondie Msungama for choosing him while Msungama said he has no doubt that the player will be offered a deal.
â€œHe has all the essentials such as good height, work-rate and experience and I have no reason to doubt that he will excel,â€ said Msungama.
Earlier this year, Namwela also underwent successful trials at Zimbabwean top-league side FC Platinum, but unfortunately, the deal fell through.
