Nyasa Big Bullets will have to wait a bit longer before they can start featuring striker Luka Milanzi following his club TP Mazembe’s delays to issue an international transfer certificate(ITC).
The former Escom United forward was on loan at Be Forward Wanderers and has now reverted to his parent club after leaving the Nomads during the transfer window.
Bullets general secretary Kelvin Moyo said they had requested a clearance from TP Mazembe.
“Luka [Milanzi] has a contract with TP Mazembe up to 2018. We have been in touch with them and we are hoping they will issue the clearance for the player to start playing for us soon on a short loan,” he said.
The defending champions may need the services of the striker after failing to score in 180 minutes.
The People’s Team dropped four points out of a possible six after earning two goalless draws against Moyale Barracks and Mzuzu University (Mzuni) over the weekend.
Despite the goal-drought, Bullets have one of the strongest attacks in the league comprising joint top goal scorer Chiukepo Msowoya, Muhammad Sulumba, Diverson Mlozi, Niyikiza Aimable, Mussa Manyenje and new signings Collen Nkhulambe.
Team manager Rahim Ishmael admitted that they have to do more to start scoring goals.
“The Mzuzu result is bad. We need to pull up our socks,” he said.
Bullets are on position three with 33 points from 19 games. n
