Flames midfielder Dave Banda has been sent for an early off-season break after being suspended at Red Lions for the reminder of the season due to misconduct.
Red Lions coach Collins Nkuna confirmed about the suspension on the sidelines of the team’s 1-0 loss to Bvumbwe in a TNM Super League fixture on Tuesday at Kamuzu Stadium.
Banda did not feature in the game raising questions about his whereabouts and Nkuna revealed he is suspended.
“Dave does not care about football and this team. He was suspended from the national team on the same charges and we thought he would change, but he is doing the same at our team.
“I will not allow indisciplined players in my team, so he will not play for us again for the rest of the season,” said Nkuna in a post-match interview.
Banda could not be reached for comment.
Last month, he was last dropped from the Flames’ Cecafa squad alongside Frank Banda after the two went clubbing and returned into camp late.
Banda was the first Malawi Defence Force serving officer to go for professional football when he signed for South African Premier Soccer League side Black Leopards in 2011, but he only played for a season. He was unceremoniously released last summer with no proper explanation and he returned to Red Lions.
