PSL club wants Robin Ngalande
Malawi national football team striker, Robin Ngalande, has been linked with a return to South Africa’s Premier Soccer League (PSL) next season.
Ngalande is currently unattached after mutual termination of his contract with Azerbaijan side FC Zira early this year.
When asked about the future of the player yesterday, his representative, Paul Mitchel of Siyavuma Sports Group, hinted that a move back to the PSL was on the cards.
“We have a club in South Africa that wants him for the new season,” Mitchell said in a brief written response.
However, Mitchell was reluctant to disclose the identity of the club, saying it was pre-mature.
Ngalande is yet to settle down at one club since returning from Spain where he had a stint with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid’s academy side.
Madrid spotted Ngalande after excellent displays during a youth tournament in Europe while playing for Mamelodi Sundowns’ academy team.
After terminating his contract in Spain, Ngalande returned to South Africa and joined Bidvest Wits on a two-year deal.
Local football analyst George Kaudza Masina said Ngalande has proved that he is a good player.
“It is a fact that Ngalande is talented but he needs a bit of counselling so that he realises his dreams as a professional footballer. I am sure Ngalande could have been somewhere by now if he had settled down at one club for a considerable period of time,” Kaudza Masina said.
Ngalande also played for South African sides Ajax Cape Town and Platinum before moving to Baroka on a three-year deal.
He played for Baroka for one year before clinching the Zira deal.
At the time of moving to Spain, Ngalande was touted as the next Samuel Eto’o because of his great talent.
