Malawian veteran striker, Esau Kanyenda, will stay put at Polokwane City after agreeing a new one-year deal with the South Africa Absa Premier Soccer League (PSL) club.
“I will be staying on at the club as I have been given a one year extension,” Kanyenda told KickOff. com Wednesday.
Since his return from a lengthy spell in Russia, the former Dwasco striker, who is in his 30s, has spent the past four years at Polokwane.
The discarded Malawi National Football Team striker was the top scorer as City won promotion from the First Division in 2012-13 season.
Although his contribution as a starter was reduced last season, Kanyenda has remained an influential factor at training and in the dressing room, which has convinced club boss, Johnny Mogaladi, to keep him at the club.
The Malawian international hinted that if he was not offered another deal at City, he would return home to play for another season in the TNM Super League.
Statistically, Kanyenda remains one of the best foreign strikers to ever play in the PSL due to the incredible spell he had at Jomo Cosmos just after the turn of the century when he scored 15 goals in 16 starts, just prior to his departure for Russia.—The Daily Times/Kick-Off magazine
