Two Nigerian players have started undergoing trials at Be Forward Wanderers after arriving in the country on Wednesday.
Striker Olasunkanmi Opeyemi and midfielder Bello Amos were recommended by former Nigeria star Jay Jay Okocha.
Wanderers head coach Jack Chamangwana said the two players would be given a chance to prove their worth before they can be offered contracts.
However, the presence of the players has attracted mixed reactions from supporters.
Others are of the view that the Nomads already have good players while some believe the two Nigerians will add depth to the squad.
“I watched them today [Wednesday]. They seem to be good players, more especially the striker. I feel if they can be part of the team. I can see trophies flocking to Nomads camp. The other one also seems to be a fantastic attacking midfielder,” Mussa Mithi commented on Wanderers official Facebook page.
But another supporter, Goli Nyirenda, feels the Nomads technical panel is losing direction.
“This is why the team doesn’t perform well. Throughout the pre-season, the team has been playing some friendlies. Just when the team is gelling, you bring some more players? This destabilises the team.
“I remember last season when the league had just started we were playing very well only for the team to bring players like Victor Nyirenda, Alfred Manyozo, Ishmael Thindwa unnecessarily,” Nyirenda said.
The Nomads have so far signed, Ernest Tambe, Rafik Namwela, Nenani Juwaya, Jimmy Zakaza
ka, Felix Zulu, Jaffalie Chande and Japanese player Genki Nakamula.
However, Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has stopped Wanderers from using Chande until his transfer dispute with Nyasa Big Bullets is resolved. n
