Mwape Musonda considering move back to Zambia for game time


Musonda spent the past season on loan at Golden Arrows but his stay there came to a premature end in April.

Though still under contract for another two years at Pirates, the 25 year-old has been informed by the club that he is not in the plans for the upcoming season and has since stopped training with the club.

“The club has indicated that I am not in the plans for the new season and that is understandable considering the issue of the number of foreign players at the club," Musonda tells

"I am currently training with Jazzy Queen’s (Harold Legodi) academy just to keep fit while waiting for a deal.

"If all fails here I will have to go back home because I really need to be playing.”

Pirates already have Edwin Gyimah, Issa Sarr, Tendai Ndoro and Bernard Morrison as foreign players, with one space being left open for the January transfer window, according to coach Muhsin Ertugral.

Two other foreign players Felipe Ovono and Yasser Mugerwa are also not in the plans at Bucs, and have since been placed on transfer.

Musonda was signed by Pirates at the beginning of last year and made just two substitute appearances under Eric Tinkler, before being loaned out to Arrows.
