Former Baroka FC star looks at options outside South Africa

Former Baroka FC star Robin Ngalande has said he is not considering returning to South Africa football any time soon as he prefers a move elsewhere.

Ngalande spoke to FARPost from his home in Malawi following his exit from Ethiopia Premier League giants Saint George FC.

“I would prefer a move elsewhere outside South Africa at the moment. My team is working on something, and I am waiting for them to communicate with me. We are looking at the next transfer window,” he said.

The former Bidvest Wits playmaker said he left Saint George following some contractual misunderstandings, and he was now looking for new challenges.

“I am sure that is what my team is working on. Once everything is ready, and both parties are happy, my team will advise me on my next destination. That is how it works with me,” he said.

The 29-year-old forward described as mere rumours reports linking him with a move to Malawi Super League champions Nyasa Big Bullets.

“I don’t even know where Bullets train…anyway; it is humbling to be linked to such teams,” he said.

The Malawian international launched his professional career at Civo United around 2009 before clinching a move to Mamelodi Sundowns Academy, who spotted him playing for the Africa Youth Championship and World Cup Under-17 squad for Malawi.

Sundowns Academy sold Ngalande to Atletico Madrid’s youth team, and he played for them until around 2012 when he signed for Bidvest Wits, followed by stints with Ajax Cape Town, Platinum Stars then Baroka.

The attacker left Baroka in 2019 and returned to Europe this time around at FC Zira in Azerbaijan and eventually signed for Saint George.
