Bullets FC have told striker Gomezgani Gondwe to return to Wanderers FC despite earlier interest to sign him.
Gondwe was in Bullets’ starting line-up when they won GOtv Soccer Challenge on Saturday after edging Silver Strikers 2-1 at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
Bullets FC general secretary Higger Mkandawire said Wanderers have been issuing threats following the player’s move to the People’s Team, hence the decision to send him back.
“He is a very good striker who was not fully utilised at Wanderers last season and our technical panel felt he could do some good job that is why we roped him in.
“But our friends have been talking bad about the move and we are afraid they may continue blowing the issue out of proportion. That may result in unnecessary tension; so, that is why we have sent Gome back,” he said.
Mkandawire, however, said another striker Lawson Chilewe, who once played for Wanderers and Escom United, will be taken on board.
“He proved he is top striker when he scored against Silver on Saturday and did well as a substitute; so, we are launching his bid. We understand he was playing for Prison United,” he said.
In a related development, top striker Gabadinho Mhango is set to make a comeback this weekend as Bullets face Epac in the Orange Partners Bonanza.
Gabadinho has been out with an ankle injury he sustained when the Flames met Namibia in Windhoek last month.
Bullets are searching for strikers as back-up to Mhango and Diverson Mlozi who are set to be committed with academic pursuits.
