Malawi women’s national football team captain Tabitha Chawinga says she is ready to return to play on the ground for Jiangsu Suning in the Chinese women’s super league which is expected to resume on 10 August.
Just as it was the case in many parts of the world, football was suspended in China in March this year due to the coronavirus pandemic which led to a lockdown in the country. With things slowly returning to normal, the Chinese women’s super league governing body has planned to resume the league next month but according to the former DD Sunshine striker, the format of the league might be changed.
“We have resumed training ahead of the season which is scheduled to resume on 10 August and I am ready to do the work which I was employed to do as I want to help the team win trophies.
“The coronavirus pandemic disturbed a lot of things and it is being planned that the 2019/20 Chinese women’s super league should be played in a cup format where it will be played on a knock out basis,” she said.
