Sundowns head hunt top Malawian defender


Facilitator of the deal in Malawi, Kondi Msungama, discloses that the Brazilians wanted the talented national team and MTL Wanderers player in South Africa this week, but the trip had been postponed.

“Sundowns are really serious about the player. They wanted him in South Africa by now, but there are some things we have to sort out before he leaves,” Msungama told Malawi’s Daily Times.

“Moses, as we all know, is one of the country’s top players despite playing for the local league. He has always been consistent in his performance.”

The player’s manager said the fact that Chavula is capable of fitting perfectly as a left winger and a left back, makes his chances of making it big, not only in South Africa, but anywhere in the world.

Black Leopards, who are on a nine-day tour in Malawi, have also shown interest to have Wanderers’ striker Joel Chipofya on trial.

“We are always proud when our players are targeted by foreign clubs because we know that this is a gateway to better things in the player's career,” Msungama said.

“Although we have not been formally told of Leopard’s interest, we welcome the move and are ready to release the player for trials.”

Chavula was linked with a move to Vietnam last year, however, the Super League of Malawi condemned the deal that was brokered by Flames mentor Stephen Constantine.

Sundowns have just signed First Division Coast Stream outfit Nathi Lions top players, Chris Makhoba and Phelelani Mpangase.

The two join Free State Star striker Fanyana Dhladhla and Black Leopards’ defender Luvhengo Mungomeni, who are expected to be officially paraded as Sundowns’ players later this week.
