Malawi women’s football team striker Temwa Chawinga says she wants to win more trophies at her Chinese Women’s Super League outfit Wuhan FC.
Chawinga, who joined Wuhan early this year but had her debut delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, said winning the Chinese Women’s League championship has inspired her to hunger for more trophies.
The former DD Sunshine striker scored 13 goals to finish as Wuhan’s top scorer and the league’s runner-up to Zambian Barbara Banda, the eventual Golden Boot Award winner.
She was also on target in the league decider. Wuhan 4-0 for Temwa to bag her first trophy in her professional career.
“I am a young player and I wanted to make
progress in a strong Asian league. That was why I moved to China,” the 19-year-old told www.goal.com.
The title success handed Wuhan a qualification ticket to represent China in this year’s AFC Women’s Club Championship to be held at a yet-to-be-announced venue in November.
They will join South Korea’s representatives Incheon Red Angels and Australian giants Melbourne City for the second edition of the tournament won by Nippon TV Beleza last year.
Temwa and Tabitha are expected to join Malawi’s Scorchers for the Cosafa Women’s Championship next month.
