Township Rollers on-loan Malawian midfielder, Gerald Phiri Jnr could wait a little longer to debut for his Botswana club as he is also waiting for a work permit.

Phiri joined Rollers on a four-month loan deal from South African side, Bidvest Wits when he failed to secure a work permit to play in the Absa Premiership.

But in a new twist of events, the versatile attacker faces similar problems.

In an interview yesterday, the player’s South African-based agent, Paul Mitchel, was not sure when the former Caps United midfielder would debut in the Be Mobile League.

“Not, yet he still has some things to clear. He might be frustrated but there is nothing he can do,” Mitchel said.

Phiri has a two-year contract with Wits after joining from the Zimbabwe giants, Caps last year.

Efforts to talk to Phiri yesterday proved futile.

The 22-year-old midfielder is among the Flames reliable players under coach Ernest Mtawali.

The former Be Forward Wanderers winger is expected to be part of the Flames squad to play Guinea in the Africa Cup of Nations next month.

At Rollers, Phiri has reunited with compatriot, Lawrence Majawa, who is one of Malawi’s longest serving players in Botswana.
