Nyasa Big Bullets have re-signed striker Chiukepo Msowoya on a two-year deal following the expiry of his six-month contract with South Africa Premier Soccer League side Golden Arrows.
Bullets have hired Msowoya back courtesy of their sponsor Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC).
Msowoya was unveiled Thursday at the company’s office in Blantyre.
NMC Chairperson, Konrad Buckle, refused to disclose Msowoya’s signing-on fee but only said the company will pay the striker’s perks.
“As you are aware, the team needs goals yet it is in financial turmoil, so as sponsors, we thought it wise to bail them out by shouldering the responsibility of bringing Chiukepo back. We thought of Chiukepo because we were not just looking for a striker, but someone who loves Bullets. Chiukepo likes the team and we hope that, alongside the other players, he will help the team to start doing better,” he said.
Msowoya, who failed to score during his stay at Arrows, said he was happy to be back home.
“First, I have to thank God for the chance to play for Arrows. I was with good players and a coach. I hope to use the experience I have gained to help Bullets start doing better.
“I am coming when the team is not doing well, but for it to start doing better, it requires team-work. It is not only about me. I have also found other players in the team so it is not automatic that I will start playing in the first eleven. The coach will decide based on my performance. Nonetheless, I promise to impress,” Msowoya said.
Bullets also signed former Civo United playmaker Nelson Kangunje last week after he terminated his contract with Mozambican side Costa do Sol.
After going four games without scoring, Bullets finally beat Civil Sporting Club 3-0 last Sunday with Collen Nkhulambe claiming a brace in the Super League match played at Kalulu Ground in Nchalo.
