The vastly experienced striker Esau Kanyenda said he did not hesitate to agree to join Be Forward Wanderers FC, and was influenced by talks with his friend and new team-mate.
The former Polokwane FC in South Africa says his conversations with the likes of Harry Nyirenda, Joseph Kamwendo sparked his interest in joining the club.
Kanyenda complete a transfer after they agreed terms with the Nomads on Monday.
The netbuster rejected interest from other clubs like Nyasa Big Bullets, and he says he did not need to think twice about his decision to move to Lali-Lubani Road, in part thanks to his friend.
“I’ve been talking to my friends and new teammates like Harry Nyirenda, Joseph and to be honest playing alongside experienced players like them pleases any footballer. Reuniting with the likes of Kamwendo, who we have played together at national team feels great,” he said.
“They explained to me how it went at the club, and it triggered something in my head. When the opportunity came, I didn’t have to think twice. I’m really excited.
“I think they’re all top players, a good group of guys that is hungry to win trophies.
“To play in front of those fans, everything is set there to perform. But, you know, I have to work harder than I’m doing now. I know the road is still far, but I’m willing to go on that path and grab the opportunity that I get.”
