Tanzanian giants Simba Sports Club have touted their latest acquistion Peter Banda, earmarking the Flames attacker for a key role in the side.
Simba Communications Director Ezekiel Kamwaga made the remarks as Banda has joined his new teammates for a two-week preseason training camp in Morocco.
“Peter is expected to play a big part for us; so, we are excited to have him,” he said.
Kamwaga also confirmed that the team would camp in Morocco.
“We are still talking to some teams in Morocco. We will stay there for two weeks as we are preparing for the upcoming season,” he said.
Former Flames captain Joseph Kamwendo believes the youngster has all the qualities to shine in Tanzania.
“He is an intelligent player and is very skillful. There is more to come from him because he is still young,” Kamwendo said recently.
Simba were expected to fly out of Tanzania for Morocco Tuesday for the training camp ahead of the new season.
Banda, who joined the Tanzanian giants after the end of his six-month loan deal with Moldova National Division champions Sheriff, is part of the squad after he completed a medical and paper work on Monday.
Both Simba and Nyasa Big Bullets have kept a tight lid on the transfer fee for the attacker.
Banda spent six months in Moldova and scored seven goals and provided 10 assists. He also featured for Sheriff in Uefa Champions League, becoming the third Malawian player to play in the competition after former Flames forward Esau Kanyenda and Charles Petro.
Expectations are high among Simba fans after the club signed the 20-year-old Malawian attacker, who was voted Player of the Season in his debut season in the TNM Super League in 2019.
