Kanyenda eyes return to SA

Posted: 4 January 2010 Time: 15:20

Former Jomo Cosmos striker Esau “Black Mamba” Kanyenda has expressed his desire to return to the PSL even though his Russian team has offered him a contract extension.

Kanyenda tells that First Division side FC Kamaz have asked him to report for training on January 9 where he would be offered a new deal.

However, he says he has asked the club to wait until he returns from the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola which begins on January 10.

“Kamaz officials emailed me while I was in Egypt with the national team. They said the team is expected to start training on January 9. They have promised me a new contract.”

Kanyenda’s contract expired at the end of the last Russian season after which he announced his plans to return to South Africa.

“It will all depend on what is on offer there. I can’t rule out a return to Russia. I have been there for six years so I am always happy to play there, but I am just as happy to come back to South Africa and play out the rest of my career here.”

Kanyenda tells that some of the clubs that have shown interest in his services are his former side Cosmos as well as defending League champions SuperSport United.

The striker says that he has put discussions with South African clubs on hold hoping that he would attract more lucrative offers after the Afcon.

“You never know what is going happen in Angola. I decided to go there as I am a free agent. It is easier to find a good team because all the clubs know that they will not have to pay a transfer fee,” he says.

Kanyenda won the Man of the Match in Flames’ 1-1 draw in an international friendly against Egypt in Cairo on Tuesday.

Malawi is currently in Swaziland where they will play against Ghana tomorrow before they leave for Angola.
