Wanderers celebrate Ngulube return

MUFULIRA Wanderers vice-secretary George Mwanja says the decision by the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) player status and transfer committee to declare midfielder Jacob Ngulube a ‘Mighty’ player should serve as a lesson to clubs to adhere to the laid down procedures in acquiring players.
And Nkana has indicated they will formalise Ngulube’s transfer with Wanderers.
Wanderers and Damiano Academy of Mufulira were embroiled in a transfer row involving Ngulube, whom the latter sold to Nkana.
Wanderers maintained that Ngulube was their player and sought FAZ’s intervention.
“This is what we have always been saying. We told Nkana that Ngulube is our player and we are happy that FAZ has agreed with us. The best clubs can do when they want to buy players from other clubs is to follow the right procedure and not go through third parties,” Mwanja said.
He is confident Ngulube will return to Wanderers where his heart is.
“I can assure you that the boy loves Mufulira Wanderers.
“He was just misled by some forces that could have easily destroyed his career,” Mwanja said.
Ngulube was influential in Wanderers’ fifth place finish last season.
And Nkana chief executive officer Ken Mwansa said the Kitwe giants will negotiate with Wanderers to ensure that Ngulube remains at the Wusakile outfit.
“We have no intentions of surrendering him to Wanderers. We will open up negotiations with Wanderers so that we formalise the transfer,” Mwansa said.
Ngulube was unveiled as a Nkana player last month.
