Premier Bet Wizards FC’s Technical Director, Peter Mponda, appears to be losing patience with striker, Grant Lungu.
“When he first came, he was very committed to training but now his heart seems to be somewhere. It seems football is no longer his priority,” Mponda said on Sunday.
He hinted that Wizards might bolster the squad which finished the TNM Super League first round on 13th place with 12 points. Wizards play attractive football, but struggle to put away scoring chances.
Mponda might have surprised some quarters when he gave Lungu an opportunity to re-launch his career which appeared over when he returned from South Africa a few years ago after parting ways with Black Leopards.
Lungu has not fulfilled the potential he showed when he burst onto the scene at the all-conquering MDC United (now defunct) before being signed by Bullets in 2001.
However, Lungu yesterday insisted that he was ill and that he would return to Wizards’ training.
