Japanese forward, Genk Nakamura, has finally signed a one-year contract with 2015 Carlsberg Cup champions, Be Forward Wanderers, after completing month-long trials.
The Nomads General Secretary, Mike Butao and vice- Team Manager, Steve Madeira, were on Thursday reluctant to give more details regarding the signing of Nakamura.
Butao said he did not want to rush into publicising identities of the new signings because the Nomads were targeting more players from other clubs.
“When time comes to talk to the media about the signing of Nakamura, we will do so, but as of now, we are running up and down completing the signing of other players whom we think will help us this season,” Butao explained.
Madeira, separately, said Nakamura signed a contract last weekend. However, Madeira was reluctant to state the duration of the contract.
“As the technical panel, we gave the executive the go-ahead to sign him after we were impressed with his performance during pre-season games. We will be with him this year,” Madeira said.
Nakamura arrived for the trials in February when he was also linked with the Lilongwe giants, Silver Strikers.
Wanderers sponsor, Be Forward Limited, recommended the well-travelled player to the Nomads. The Japanese automobile dealer promised to take care of his perks.
Meanwhile, Jafali Chande, was for the first time since dumping Nyasa Big Bullets a fort night ago, spotted training with Wanderers at Chiwembe Ground on Wednesday.
And in what seemed as Chande’s replacement, Bullets Chairperson, Sammy Chilunga, yesterday announced the signing from Wizards FC of up-and-coming striker, Mike Mkwate, on a six-year contract.
