Malawi National Football Team and Blue Eagles attacker Schumacher Kuwali has resumed training after recovering from a thigh injury.
Kuwali sustained the injury last month while with the Flames in Saudi Arabia.
The injury ruled him out of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.
Eagles Chairperson Alexander Ngwala said Kuwali will be an important member of the team in the new season.
“He is back in training and is looking great. It is our hope that he will greatly contribute to our success in the 2022 season,” Ngwala said.
Kuwali returned to Eagles after two years at Mozambican side UD Songo, where he played for one season due to the Covid pandemic.
The versatile forward, who scored seven goals in 14 appearances last year, said he enjoys playing for Eagles.
“I am happy to stay put at Eagles. I enjoy playing for this club. I want to help the team to fight for trophies in the new season,” he said.
Kuwali helped Eagles win the defunct Fisd Challenge Cup in 2019 and also guided Eagles to position three in the TNM Super League of the same year.
Eagles are on a rebuilding exercise after offloading players such as Patrick Phiri, Henry Misinjo, Mphatso Philimon, Tony Mbulu, Brian Msumatiza and Lazarus Nyemera.
The club also hired Christopher Sibale and Elia Kananji as co-coaches after parting ways with Gerald Phiri Senior.
Eagles survived relegation on the final day of last season after beating Mighty Wanderers 3-1.
