Be Forward Wanderers football club Nigerian striker Babatunde Adepoju has returned to the club after the capital city giants Silver Strikers reversed it’s decision to sign the striker they had been chasing.
Initially the central bankers agreed to pay k8 million to the Lali Lubani side for the services of the former Masters Security hitman but according to the club’s board chairman Victor Madhlopa the club has reversed their decision to bring the striker to the club.
“We have reversed our wish to sign Babatunde despite us having already agreed with his club Be Forward Wanderers but we were yet to agree on personal terms with the player which was not the case until 10 March, the date we had set to finalise all our transfers. For that reason, our new coach Daniel Kabwe told the club he will work with the current players in the new season,” Madhlopa said.
Babatunde scored 15 goals for the nomads last season in the TNM super league which made the central bankers chase him as they looked for someone to replace their hitman Khuda Muyaba who left the club for Polokwane City in South Africa having won the golden boot with 21 goals.
In related development, Silver Strikers has closed business for everyone who used to sell things at the stadium during games. According to the teams marketing and communication officer Daniel David Dauda the club has made the decision as it’s going commercial and will revert to occupy any other business around the stadium as a way to collect revenue for the club.
