Be Forward Wanderers’ Goalkeeper Trainer, Valence Kamzere, says he is unsure if he will continue playing once the Nomads’ injured three goalkeepers return to action.
Kamzere, who quit four years ago, kept a clean sheet on Saturday when Nomads defeated Karonga United 4-0 in a TNM Super League second round match at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
“That is subject to discussions with management. If they want me to continue, there is no problem. It was business as usual for me getting back into action. I was psychologically ready as, before Richard Chipuwa got injured, I was his deputy during most Carlsberg Cup games,” he explained yesterday.
“There is minimal competition among goalkeepers these days. For example, at my peak, I used to fight for the number one jersey against top keepers such as Kenneth Kandulu, Bothwell Kuwanda (both now deceased) and Phillip Nyasulu.”
Kamzere stepped in for the injured Chipuwa, Nenani Juwaya and Peter Munthali.
Last week, another veteran, Swadick Sanudi, also returned to action for Wanderers’ rivals, Nyasa Big Bullets, in a 4-1 win over Kamuzu Barracks at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Sanudi was recalled to duty following the injury of Ernest Kakhobwe. However, over the weekend, Sanudi was on the substitutes’ bench as Chimwemwe Kunkwawa kept clean sheets in draws against Moyale Barracks and Mzuni FC.
