Nyasa Big Bullets football club captain John Kintu Lanjesi says it feels good that he is close to full recovery from the injury that has kept him out of action for close to a year and with the 2020 season yet to kick off he might start the with the team as he is expected to return from injury in June.
The former Civil Service united defender got injured midway through the 2019 TNM super league and was not part of the team that defended the champions for Bullets last year. He had started training with the team before the postponement of training due to the corona virus.
Speaking in an interview Lanjesi who won the player of the season award for the award in 2018 said it feels good for him to return to the field and he is ready to fight for his position.
“I thank God as I am better now and since the league has not yet started I might start the league together with my fellow players. I am ready to fight for my position back in the team as I know that some players did a good job in my absence which won’t be easy for me to be in the team,” he said.
Lanjesi further said the injury has been a major setback to his career as every player wants to play for his team every time.
“As a player it feels bad not being on the field of play as that’s our office and what gives us money but injuries are part of the sport and there is no way I could force myself to play while I was not feeling good,” said Lanjesi.
