Be Forward Wanderers are on this coming Saturday to deal with their rivals, Nyasa Big Bullets in different way as they are going to feature two new signed Nigerian players in the TNM Super League match.
Currently Nomads have signed free agents, Adekola Ayinla and Ebuka Fabian Ozochukwu, from Nigeria through former Super Eagles captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha.
According to Wanderers Vice-Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, said the two players have demonstrated the high quality of football at the Lali Lubani Road.
“They have been training with us for a week now and we are impressed with their work rate. We will definitely feature them against Bullets this weekend. We would like people to appreciate the difference such international players bring into a team,” said Mkandawire.
He also believed that these players will definitely give Bullets tough time in their first coming game.
Wanderers Assistant Coach, Elia Kananji, said he was also impressed with the Nigerians.
“From what we have seen so far, Adekola and Ebuka are great players. They are likely to make a big difference for us should they maintain what we are seeing in training,” Kananji said.
However Bullets’ Team Manager, Rahim Ishmael, said his camp was not losing sleep over lining up against the Nigerians.
“Let Wanderers come up with their best squad. They are free to feature the Nigerians. They are their players after all. But what we know is that they are not from another planet. They are just as human as our players are,” Ishmael said.
Nomads are flooded with other foreign players Japanese, Genki Nakamura, and another Nigerian, Amos Bello.
