Nigerian striker Amos Bello eyes Wanderers return

As football is set to return in August for this season, Nigerian striker, Amos Bello has hinted that he is willing to return to Be Forward Wanderers after undergoing a successful surgery for the knee injury he sustained at Bingu National Stadium (BNS) in 2017.

The injury rendered Bello unable to play until the time he returned to his home for further medical help.

Being a free agent back in his home country, the forward said in an interview on Monday that he is harbouring interest to reunite with the blue side.

β€œI would like to return to Wanderers. I don’t know when or how or what, but playing at Wanderers obviously I like it. I have great memories for Wanderers. Wanderers is a lovely family and it was great memory and it surely remains one of the best part of my life and am looking forward to a day when I will be part of this great club again,” he said.

The towering striker said there was a lot of talk about him when he was in Malawi and that he is ready to unite with a fellow countryman Babatunde Adepoju.

“I was also injured for a while so it wasn’t a good moment for me. My contract expired while l was still in love with the Nomads but it was difficult to negotiate for another contract while l was injured,” he said.

Be Forward Wanderers general secretary, Victor Maunde said they have no problem welcoming back Bello, but was quick to stress that his return can only be subjected to two conditions.

β€œHe is always welcome to Lali-Lubani because we still regard him as our son, but on two conditions which are assessment by the coaches and how he could fit into our budget. He is a brilliant player and we enjoyed his stay at Wanderers,” said Maunde.

Currently, the Nomads have two players from abroad namely, Eric Atsigah from Ghana and Babatunde Adepoju from Nigeria.

While in Malawi, Bello was also linked with a move to Nyasa Big Bullets but it failed to materialise.
