Civil Service united assistant coach Elia Kananji has asked the club to consider giving former Be Forward Wanderers and Nyasa Big Bullets striker Muhammad Sulumba a contract for the team to do well in 2020 season.
Sulumba joined the civil servants towards the second round of the 2019 TNM super league and finished as the teams top goal scorer with 11 goals and helped the team finish on fourth position. His contract expired in December 2019.
Sulumba who also played for Polokwane City in South Africa went for trials in Vietnam in January this year where things did not go well for him and upon his return has been training with the area 9 based side.
Speaking ahead of the 2020 season to start on 21 March, the former Be Forward Wanderers and Nyasa Big Bullets coach Elia Kananji said Sulumba is showing signs he has the energy to play and help the club that authorities should consider giving him a contract.
“Yes he is not a new player at the club and since his return from Vietnam where he went to try his luck he has been training with us and has featured in a number of friendly games where he has been scoring goals which is good for him as a striker. He is continuing where he left off last season and as the technical panel we will talk to the officials to consider giving him a contract that he play for Civil Service this year as well,” said Kananji.
Kananji further said the civil servants will beef up their squad with a few players such as goalkeeper Chakonda Majanga who played for the relegated Mlatho Mponela last season, Chikondi Maloya from Masters security and Tilekeleni Anzeru Joseph. The team has also promoted two players from it’s reserve side which have the potential to stand the heat of the top flight league.
