Big Bullets chasing wind—Nomads

By Isaac Salima:

Be Forward Wanderers Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, has said no other player is leaving the club. Mkandawire has assured Wanderers supporters to treat reports that their rivals Nyasa Big Bullets want to invade their camp with more signings as speculation.

Mkandawire made the remarks on Monday when Wanderers unveiled Babatunde Adeboye after signing the striker from Masters Security.

“Bullets are just chasing the wind. We know that some of our players’ contracts are running out [but] I don’t think you need to know what we are doing on the ground. Our supporters should know that we are doing something,” Mkandawire said.

Bullets and Wanderers are at loggerheads following the former’s signing of defender Precious Sambani on Friday. Sambani was at Wanderers on loan from Namiwawa Madrid.

Bullets Chief Executive Officer, Fleetwood Haiya, on Monday hinted that they would sign more players.

But on Monday Wanderers made a quick one by signing Adeboye on a three-year contract amid rumours that their rivals were also eyeing him.

Mkandawire said Adeboye will replace Yamikani Chester who has clinched a deal with MFK from Czech Republic.

“I think the whole country knows what kind of a player he is. He is a player who is a better replacement for Chester. We greatly welcome him and we are hopeful that he is going to assist us a lot,” Mkandawire said.

Wanderers are on the verge of losing seasoned midfielder Joseph Kamwendo who might sign for South African club, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.

Adeboye who, has signed as a free agent, said he is delighted to join Wanderers.

“I decided to join Wanderers because they came with a better offer. I promise the supporters that I will still be myself. The fans should be calm as Baba is here,” the 23-year-old from Lagos, said.

Mkandawire could not disclose the cost of the deal.
