Tabitha Kayira sets target in Italy


Inter Milan Women striker Tabitha Chawinga has set her sights on helping her new club win titles this season.

The Malawian was unveiled as Milan player following her yearlong move from Chinese Women’s Super League giants Wuhan Jiangda Thursday.

In an interview Thursday, Tabitha said she was ready to prove her prowess in the Italian Serie A.


“First of all, I want to help the team to do well in all competitions. Secondly, if God allows, I want to compete for the golden boot award,” Tabitha said.

Milan confirmed on their website the arrival of the former DD Sunshine striker from Wuhan.

“The new #Inter women forward is here! Welcome Tabitha,” reported Milan official website.


Tabitha could make her debut for Milan as they host Parma on Sunday next week.

She joins Milan with a good reputation as one of the best strikers having dominated Chinese Women’s League for five years.

The Scorchers captain won three golden boot awards in China while playing for Wuhan (one) and Jiang Sunning (twice).

Before moving to China, she won the golden boot award twice in Sweden in three seasons including scoring 43 goals in one season.

In her debut season in Sweden, she scored 38 goals for Krokom Dvarssatts despite joining the club while the league was already in progress.

National Women’s Football Association (NWFA) Chairperson Suzgo Ngwira was confident that Tabitha will live up to her expectations.

“She is a hard worker and I expect her to continue from where she left in China. The league is tough in Italy but she can make it as she has quality,” Ngwira said.

Tabitha, born in Rumphi District, won three Chinese Women’s Super League titles (twice with Sunning) and one with Wuhan.

She has won the golden boot award three times in China.

Additionally, she also won the Player of the year award in China twice.
