Nyasa Big Bullets’ versatile defender, Emmanuel Zoya, should know by Friday if he has passed trials at Zambia’s Super Division side Red Arrows.
In an interview from Lusaka, the former Civil Sporting Club captain said he hopes to make it despite facing stiff competition from other foreigners.
Zoya said he was confident in himself as he has been featuring in the club’s pre-season matches.
“All is well here. I am winding up my trials on Friday [tomorrow]. The club’s officials are saying, this being a military club, it is the first time they want to recruit foreign players.
“I have been undergoing trials alongside players from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe and Tanzania, but I cannot complain much. I am just waiting for the outcome of the trials,” Zoya said.
Zoya scored six goals for Bullets in the just-ended season.
If he passes the trials, Zoya would join in Zambia former team-mate Dalitso Sailesi, who plays for Lusaka Dynamos.
Bullets Chief Executive Officer, Fleetwood Haiya, said he would not comment on Zoya’s trials.
Haiya said this when he was asked about Bullets’ re-signing of defender Sankhani Mkandawire and the imminent departure of Miracle Gabeya to South Africa’s National First Division side, Highlands Park.
