BE FORWARD Wanderers striker Khumbo Ng’ambi might leave the club due to lack of game-time, an inside source has confirmed. The source has said the Airtel Top 8 top goal scorer has handed in his resignation letter.
“He is always on the bench and sometimes plays in the last few minutes of games. This frustrates him as he strives to improve his career,” said the source speaking on condition of anonmity. Ng’ambi has been linked with a switch to rivals, Nyasa Big Bullets. But Wanderers Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, expressed ignorance on the matter.
“I know nothing about that and I have not seen his letter. These may just be those transfer rumours supporters make. “Maybe after the coming in of Esau Kanyenda, some supporters think he will be a threat to Khumbo. Otherwise, we are okay with him in our camp. He is among our top strikers,” Mkandawire said.
Bullets interim General Secretary, Albert Chigoga, said he was also in the dark about the player being linked to the People’s Team.
“We have never approached him and he has never approached us for a possible move to our team. Maybe our supporters have their interest in him, but those may just be rumours, especially with the transfer window being open,” Chigoga said.
Ng’ambi refused to comment on the matter. The former Under-20 national team striker was part of the squad that travelled to Mozambique for a friendly match against Quelimane.
He also played in the semifinal match against Moyale Barracks last weekend at Mzuzu Stadium where he also converted his spot-kick during post-match penalties.
He emerged as Airtel Top 8 Cup top scorer after netting three goals in the semi-final against Moyale.
