Silver Strikers snub Amos Bello


As the contractual dispute between Be Forward Wanderers and Nigerian Amos Bello refuses to die, Silver Strikers have made a sensational claim that the forward expressed interest in joining the club.

Bello and Wanderers are embroiled in a contractual dispute as the player is reluctant to renew his contract, demanding an improved deal.

In the latest development, the striker was spotted at Silver Stadium on Thursday when he watched the team’s training session.


Silver General Secretary, Thabo Nyirenda, on Friday confirmed that Bello approached them for a possible transfer to the side.

“He was at Silver trying his luck. We told him to clear issues with his team first before we can engage in another discussion,” Nyirenda said in a written response.

The Nigerian is talented. He is good at taking on defenders and creating chances for teammates.


The combination of Bello and Peter Wadabwa was effective for the Nomads last season.

In a separate interview, Bello, though refusing Silver’s claims, said he was still a Nomads player.

“I will be going to Blantyre to start training next week,” he said.

The Nomads’ Vice- Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, who is responsible for players’ contracts at the club, said he would comment on Bello next week.

Bello, who netted three goals in all competitions for Wanderers last season, was also linked with a move to South Africa’s National First Division side, Black Leopards.

Silver and Nomads are not seeing eye-to-eye after the Lali Lubani Road outfit signed Lucky Malata from Silver on a three-year deal.

Reports suggest that Silver are also interested in signing attacker Jabulani Linje from Wanderers.

Linje is into the last three months of his contract at Wanderers.
