BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)— Dropped Malawi national football team striker, Khuda Myaba, who unceremoniously left South Africa’s Premier Soccer League relegated side, Polakwane City, after failing to mend fences with the team’s management, has finally tamed his ego and has assured the team’s management of his stay and commitment at the club.
The former Silver Strikers forward reportedly expressed his anger and refused to apologise to the club’s chairman Johnny Mogaladi during a meeting held on Friday.
Muyaba criticised the club’s hierarchy for turning him into a fringe player as he only played a single game and came in as a substitute.
He also hit at the club for failing to pay his signing on fee and accused his compatriot, Esau Kanyenda, for sabotaging his life at Polokwane.
“It is better I return home [Malawi] and suffer than stay here [in South Africa]. I have endured a lot. This club paid Silver Strikers for my services but did not pay my signing- on fee. As I am speaking I left the teams base and I am now in Johannesburg ready to return home on Tuesday [today],” he said.
But according to a facebook post on Tuesday, October 6, 2020, Myaba has rescinded his decision to leave the team, saying he wants to help Polokwane City to return into the South Africa’s top flight league.
He wrote on his official Facebook page, “…….I would like to strongly apologize to the Polokwane Family (the chairman, the technical team , my fellow players and the supporters) for my behavior on and off the pitch, this [is] to assure you that am now committed than ever to help the rise and shine family rise again back into the PSL.”
Khuda, who has recently been in the media for unsporting behaviour, has also extended his apology to Malawi national team coach Meck Mwase, former Flames striker, Essau Kanyenda and the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) over his bad behaviour on and off the pitch.
The former Silver Strikers forward hurled insults at Kanyenda and the Flames coach for not including him in the Flames squad.
“And to The Malawi football Association,The national team coach Meke Mwase,Essau kanyenda my Legend, Fellow Malawian national team players and all Flames supporters I would like to say sorry for the bad words and behavior, I will make sure I give my all and help the team get the desired results if called upon for duty again. Am deeply sorry,” he added.
Myaba is on record to have blamed Kanyenda for facilitating his move to Polokwane City, saying he was suffering at the club because of him.
Muyaba, who also played for Moyale Barracks, joined the South African side in January this year, having won the 2019 TNM Super League golden boot award with 21 goals.
