Flames sweeper James Sangala has politely snubbed his former club Mighty Wanderers’ advances to take him back on board.
Sangala, whose contract with top Angolan side Primeiro de Agosto expires on Monday, confirmed having been approached by the Nomads team manager Chiyembekezo Zidana to seriously consider a return to Lali Lubani Road.
“I was indeed approached by Wanderers through their team manager, but what I told him was that I am still weighing other options.
“I am currently in talks with a few foreign teams and as such I cannot commit myself to Wanderers. I asked them to give me a bit of time,” said Sangala.
However, the defender said he would not mind rejoining his former team should a prospective move abroad fail to materialise.
Zidana confirmed having approached Sangala.
“We indeed approached him having learnt that the Angolan team will not renew his contract because he has always been a Nomad through and through.
“But his explanation was indeed that he is still weighing other options, but we told him that if he so wishes to come back home then he is very welcome,” said Zidana.
The Nomads were hoping to add Sangala to the growing list of returnees after defender Moses Chavula and Joseph Kamwendo returned to Lali Lubani Road after agreeing to mutual termination of their contracts with South African top leagues sides Amazulu and Orlando Pirates respectively.
Sangala joined South African PSL side Thanda Royal Zulu from Wanderers in 2006 before his contract was terminated. He then moved to Primero de Agosto.
