Former Nyasa Big Bullets midfielder, Robert Ng’ambi has hinted on the return back home after being released by South Africa’s Black Leopards at the end of last season.

Ng’ambi, who joined Lidoda Duvha in 2005 was instrumental to the team and helped them survive relegation from the South African Premier League through promotion/relegation play-offs.

The 34-year-old told www.dailysun.co.za that he was yet to make up his mind if he is hanging his boots or continue playing.

“I am going home to Malawi to be with my family. This was a hectic year of football because of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. My contract with Leopards expired and they did not renew it. 

“So now I am not thinking about football I just want to go home and spend time with my family. I have not seen them for a long time because of Covid-19. I will decide about my future when I am at home.”

“I love Leopards and I am thankful to their management as they are the first club that gave me a chance to play in South Africa. I am happy I am leaving them while they are still in the Premiership. It would have hurt me if we failed to save their top flight status. I am proud and leaving with my head held high,” he was quoted.

The former Malawi national team international joined Bullets in 2003 before he moved to Zimbabwe to join Motomutapa two years later and proceeded to Leopards same year.

In 2011 he shifted to Platinum Stars still in South Africa until July 2018 when he had no club.

He then returned to Lidoda Duvha in January 2019.

Back home, his football career was launched at Young Soccer Stars and Zingwangwa Pirates.
