Be Forward Wanderers Vice-Captain, Lucky Malata, hopes for a better 2019 season after recovering from a groin injury that sidelined him for three months last campaign.
The former Silver Strikers defender was outstanding in defence for Wanderers during the Nyasa Big Four Bonanza, which run from Friday to Monday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Malata said he hopes to build on his impressive performance next season so as to help Wanderers fight for silverware.
“I am very happy to return to action after spending almost half of the season without playing. I was on-and-off last year because it was a serious injury. Now, I have fully recovered,” he said.
“I need to work hard because I expect tough competition this season. I will do everything possible to claim my position in defence.”Advertisement
The Nomads finished second in the bonanza with five points, at par with Ferroviaro de Nampula who won the championship on a superior goal aggregate.
Meanwhile, former Wanderers striker Peter Wadabwa has said he is happy to have completed his transfer from Wanderers to Mozambican side Desportivo de Maputo.
Wadabwa has signed a one-year deal with Maputo as a free agent.
“I will try my best to work hard. I have been doing everything possible to play outside Malawi after leaving South Africa four year ago. I will be here for a year with an option to extend the contract,” Wadabwa said.
Wadabwa has reunited at Maputo with former Flames goalkeeper Simplex Nthala.
