Be Forward Wanderers have shown a concern about their new signings from Nigeria as they do not meet team  expectations  and have asked  to adjust themselves to the local game.

Nomads sealed loan deals for Ebuka Fabian Ozochukwu and Adekola Ayinla for the rest of the season, but they have failed to break into the starting line-up.

Ozochukwu showed touches of brilliance when he debuted for Nomads in a 2-1 loss to Kamuzu Barracks at Civo Stadium whereas Ayinla is yet to feature for Nomads having spent over a month.

Wanderers’ General Secretary, Mike Butao, on Monday said the foreign players were good enough to help the team, but they were struggling due to the physical aspect of the domestic football.

“It is up to them to up their game. But we will see at the end of the season when their loan deals expire,” he said.

Ozochukwu and Ayinla joined Wanderers following recommendations from Nigerian legend, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha.

Nomads have bought more foreign players this season only Nigerian, Amos Bello, enjoys game-time at Wanderers whereas Japanese forward, Genki Nakamura, is struggling to hit the ground running.
