Malawi national football team captain Limbikani Mzava has hinted that an injury has rued him out of the 2019 COSAFA tournament which will take place in Durban, South Africa starting from May 25th to June 8.
Mzava who last played for the Flames in September last year in a 2019 African Cup of Nations, AFCON qualifier game against Morocco under the Belgian tactician Ronny Vanny Geneugden, says he was approached by the Flames technical panel asking for his availability but an injury he sustained while playing for his South African premier league side Golden Arrows Football Club.
“I was approached by the Malawi national football team techinal panel asking me to be with the team at the COSAFA tournament and I failed to accept the chance as I got knocks a while ago while playing for my club Golden Arrows and I was forced to feature in the remaining last games of the season.
“I could have also forced myself to play for the Flames but that will mean am not doing justice to myself and my career as I have been instructed to rest for four weeks to fully recover from the knows and by then the COSAFA tournament will have ended but I thank them for considering them and I wish them all the best at the tournament “, Mzamva said.
Mzamva also said that he is considering about his future as he has opted not to extend his contract with Golden Arrows, where he has been for the last three year having joined the club in 2016 from Mpumalanga Black aces.
“My contract with Golden Arrows ends later this month and I have decided not to extend my stay at the club and I will shade more light of my future in the coming days “, Mzamva said.
Limbikani Mzamva has also played for Bloemfontein Celtic Football Club in South Africa and has been one of the most reliable players at Golden Arrows since joining the club as he has featured in most of the teams games.
