Work permit delays Nakamura’s debut


Enthusiastic Be Forward Wanderers fans will have to wait longer before they can appreciate the skill of Japanese forward, Genki Nakamura, in the TNM Super League.

Nakamura has been the centre of attraction during the Nomads training sessions with the fans cheering his every move. At least, from what has been seen so far, Nakamura is a gem.

The only stumbling block is a work permit to allow him play for the Lali Lubani Road side as the technical team has spoken of their admiration of his skill.


The Nomads Vice-Team Manager, Steve Madeira, said the club applied for the permit, but was told by the Immigration Department to present the player’s Japan police report.

“We asked for the report from police in Japan and we expect it in at least by Tuesday [yesterday]. So, people should expect Nakamura’s league debut this weekend,” Madeira explained.

Madeira said Nigerian striker, Amos Bello, brought with him a police report, hence processing his permit did not take time.


Immigration Department spokesperson, Joseph Chauwa, concurred with Madeira on the need for the police report before the work permit is issued.

“That is the normal procedure. The police report gives us a picture of the applicant’s criminal record,” Chauwa said.
