South Africa Absa Premier Soccer League (PSL) side, Bloemfontein Celtic, say the decision on whether to recall Nyasa Big Bullets striker, Chiukepo Msowoya, will be made at the end of the season.
Msowoya underwent a two-week trial in South Africa in February this year, but was not signed because Celtic’s foreign quota was full.
In an interview from South Africa Tuesday, Celtic Malawian Team Manager, John Maduka, said it was difficult for him to disclose plans for next season.
“I will be able to give details at the end of the season because the club is yet to meet to discuss plans for next season. At the end of every season we have a meeting to discuss issues like which players we need for next season,” he said.
In February this year, Maduka said the club would invite the gangling forward in May for further assessment.
“Everybody, including the chairperson of the team, was impressed with his performance. He is now a matured person and he showed some great quality during the short period,” Maduka had claimed.
“The coach had a chat with him and he said ‘let us not make a decision now without seeing much of him because it would be unfair to the player and the club’.”
Celtic had earmarked Msowoya as Frank Gabadinho Mhango’s replacement after the player and club parted ways unceremoniously.
Msowoya finished as the top goal scorer in the 2015 TNM Super League with 14 goals alongside Innocent Bokosi of Red Lions.
This season, the former Orlando Pirates forward has netted three league goals, including last weekend’s brace against Mafco at Chitowe.
