John Banda, Schumacher Kuwali off to SA for trials


Blue Eagles could lose key players, John Banda and Schumacher Kuwali, who left Wednesday for two-week trials at Mozambican club, Ferroviaro de Nampula.

Banda and Kuwali flew out through Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) to join the team’s pre-season training in South Africa.

Blue Eagles general secretary, Benjamin Msowoya, confirmed Wednesday to have given the duo a go ahead.


“If the players do well during the trials, we will start negotiations with the Mozambican club. As Eagles, we will not stand in their way if they give us a good offer,” Msowoya said.

According to Msowoya, Nampula were also interested in Eagles holding midfielder, Philip Masiye, but have found another player in Mozambique.

He insisted that Eagles will not make panic signings even if the two clinch deals with the Mozambican club. Banda had unsuccessful trials at Jomo Cosmos in South Africa recently.


Another Mozambican club, managed by Manuel Tico-Tico Bucuane is also interested in signing Banda, whose deal to Costa do Sol flopped after Eagles refused to release him on loan last year.

Mozambican teams’ local representative, Nelito James Pondamale, confirmed the trials, but did not elaborate.

However, The Daily Times has established that Nampula want Kuwali and Banda on loan deals.

The Mozambican club has also offered the two players a signing-on fee of US$ 6500 (about K4.8 million) each and a lucrative monthly salary.

The club, which is also finalising transfers of Silver Strikers’ Green Harawa and Ndaziona Chatsalira, has also promised the players a free flat during their stay in Mozambique.

The two versatile attackers are Flames reliable players under coach Ernest Mtawali.
