Silver Strikers coach Franco Ndawa has said he is excited at meeting his former club Mighty Wanderers in the finals of the K20 million (about $67 000) Standard Bank Knockout Trophy.
The Bankers are scheduled to face the Nomads in a potentially explosive final contest this Saturday. The winners will cart home a cool K7 million (about $2 333) and the trophy.
Ndawa said he cannot wait to face Wanderers two months after his contract was terminated following a string of poor results.
â€œEverything happens for a reason and I am excited that we will be facing Wanderers in the final of the Standard Bank Trophy, exactly two months after we parted ways,â€ he said.
The Bankers mentor also said he does not have any grudges against his former team.
Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda also said they are excited with the development.
â€œWe are familiar with his [Ndawa] tactical approach to games and he is also familiar with our players. It should really be an exciting final. But with or without him in the Silver technical panel, Nomads would always play to win any cup,â€ said Kanyenda.
