Drama as Genki Nakamura jets in
There was drama on Thursday evening at Kamuzu International Airport when Japanese versatile attacker, Genki Nakamura, arrived ahead of a proposed move to Be Forward Wanderers.
Nakamura arrived around 6 pm, but there was no one to welcome him and he looked like a lost child. Some Silver Strikers officials came to his rescue in an attempt to hijack the deal.
This did not go well with Nomads officials and they followed the player to one of Silver official’s houses, claiming the player was in the country for trials at Wanderers.
Wanderers general secretary, Mike Butao, who was in Lilongwe on Thursday, claimed he travelled to the Capital City to welcome the player.
“Actually, I am in Lilongwe to welcome him. Nakamura will be assessed for two weeks and after that we will see the way forward,” Butao said.
On his part, Silver treasurer, Fred Kalonga said they went to the airport as a Good Samaritan and not to hijack the deal.
“Some of the officials at the airport called me that there was a Japanese player, who was mentioning Silver, so we went there and offered him transport. Suddenly, Wanderers officials came to my house and asked for him” Kalonga said.
Nakamura on Friday insisted he was open to any local team interested in signing him depending on the offer.
