Sashi Chalwe signs for FC AK


“Sashi made a huge impression on the coach during his trial period and now we are waiting for his papers to be processed before he gets to play,” says FC AK team manager Gene Petersen.

“He has lost some of the weight but I am sure he will play a crucial role in the team this season.”

Chalwe had declined to renew his contract with Bloemfontein Celtic last season, claiming he was going abroad. However, the move flopped and then he surprisingly surfaced at the Roodepoort-based club three weeks ago.

The 24-year-old former Mamelodi Sundowns’ defender has tells Kick Off that his decision not to renew with Celtic had nothing to do with finances, but the need for a change of scenery.
