Elia Kananji pleased with Nomads’ depth
Mighty Be Forward Wanderers coach, Elia Kananji, has said he is pleased with the level of competition in his squad.
Kananji said he was glad with the depth of the squad which does not guarantee any player a starting place in the team.
“Competition is good because every player knows that he has to work hard to win a place in the team. For every position, we have three or four good players. This will help instill a fighting spirit in the squad therefore we could have a good second round,” he said.
Kananji added that the coming in of experienced campaigners in Ishmael Thindwa, Alfred Manyozo Junior and Victor Nyirenda has added strength to the squad.
“They just need to be given some time to gain match fitness. They will add strength to the team,” he said.
In the goalkeeping department, Richard Chipuwa, Peter Munthali and Bester Phiri have been competing for a starting place this season but Chipuwa has cemented the number one position after picking up his performance.
In defence, Francis Mlimbika and Ted Suman have battled for the left-back position while in central defence Kondwani Lufeyo, Stuart Gerald, Enock Likoswe and Peter Nselema are fighting for the position.
New signing Stanley Sanudi has cemented the right-back position ahead of Bongani Kaipa.
The Nomads’ options in midfield are Mike Kaziputa, Ibrahim Sadiki, Alfred Manyozo Junior, Jacob Ngwira, Malumbo Gondwe, Kondwani Kumwenda, Rafik Mussa and Isaac kaliati.
The options upfront are Sparrow Msowoya, Mapopa Kaunda, Victor Nyirenda, Luka Milanzi, Precious Msosa, Ishmael Thindwa and Victor Mpinganjira.
