Limbikani Mzava yet to decide on future
Malawi National Football Team captain Limbikani Mzava is weighing options before finally deciding on his future.
Mzava is without a club after South Africa DStv Premiership side AmaZulu released him alongside 14 other players last week.
Speaking in an interview from Johannesburg, South Africa, Thursday, Mzava said he had offers on the table but was not in a hurry.
“I am taking my time at the moment. I do not see the need to panic because there are several offers on my lap. I will come out clearly once everything has been finalised,” Mzava said.
The former Escom United defender has played for five different clubs in South Africa since 2011.
Mzava did not join The Flames for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers as he had excused himself for the Ethiopia and Guinea ties due to injury.
He also watched a good portion of Malawi’s Afcon final matches in Cameroon early this year after picking an injury.
Upon returning from national duty, Mzava continued to miss action at Amazulu until his release.
Sports analyst Sherry Msuku said Mzava has great chances of signing for another Premiership club in South Africa.
“Mzava is still a good defender and I am sure many teams in South Africa would be interested in his services,’’ Msuku said.
Mzava’s first club in South Africa was Bloemfontein Celtic.
He then moved to Mpumalanga Black Aces on loan before joining Golden Arrows.
The former Mighty Waka Waka Tigers defender also had a romance with Highlands Park but was offloaded after the club sold its Premier Soccer League status to TS Galaxy.
He then signed for Amazulu on a two-year deal in 2020 but saw little action due to stiff competition.
Mzava’s compatriots strikers Gabadinho Mhango and Richard Mbulu are also on the verge of moving to new clubs.
Mhango is expected to join AmaZulu whereas Mbulu is on the verge of joining Arrows.
