Malawi national football team winger Dalitso Sailesi has revealed his two-pronged mission at the on-going Cosafa Castle Cup in South Africa—to salvage something from the Flames campaign and lure foreign clubs.
The Nyasa Big Bullets winger has been the Flames’ most outstanding player in games against Tanzania and Mauritius.
Sailesi was named man of the match when the Flames drew 0-0 with Mauritius on Tuesday.
The former Blantyre United player was also lively on Sunday when the Flames lost 2-0 to Tanzania.
“I came here hoping to help the Flames win the cup. Although the chances look slim, we will still fight to the end because anything can happen in football. There is no time to give up as we can still turn around this. Of course, our result will largely hinge on the other games’ results,” he said.
Sailesi also said he wanted to lure South African clubs to sign him.
“It is a dream of every footballer to play professional football. I have been giving out my all hoping that scouts or teams will offer me a trial so that I can prove myself,” he said.
Commenting on the man of the match award, Sailesi said in his opinion, he played better against Tanzania than Mauritius.
“I felt I should have won the award on Sunday because I really had a grand game. However, I lost that opportunity because we lost.
