Striker Evans Kangwa has made a dramatic return to Nkana almost seven months after ditching the 2013 champions.
Kangwa graced Nkana’s training on Tuesday and surprisingly got a positive welcome back to Kitwe from the fans who had turned up to watch afternoon training in Wusakile despite his acrimonious departure last August.
“He has come back is he our prodigal son and he has realized that this is where he belongs,” Nkana club secretary Ken Mwansa said.
Kangwa, who last played competitive club football in 2012, spent the entire 2013 season trying to secure a move to Europe that fell through.
The striker spent the first six months of 2013 in Spain at second tier side Recreativo Huelva but that deal collapsed after both parties failed to agree on a transfer fee.
Kangwa later dumped Nkana and dropped off the radar but popped up briefly for a trial in South Africa at Bidvest Wits before joining Zanaco in January.
“He is our player, he has a contract with us and he is on our retention list,” Mwansa said.
Kangwa meanwhile went through the paces with his old and new team mates with the exception of new boy Bruce Musankanya who has been excused as a precautionary measure following a two month injury lay-off.
