It’s been long time coming.
After displaying a five-star performance in the just ended FAM charity cup, Malawi’s celebrated winger, Fischer Kenan Kondowe has revealed plans of hanging his boots anytime shortly.
The Big Bullets former captain hinted on the retirement during a post-match interview when he was asked to comment on his team’s performance in the just ended charity matches at Bingu National Stadium.
“Jahman” said he was convinced time had come for him to hang his boots as his team is now in shape.
“Like i said , if we will play the way we ended the season all will be well , the players are doing great. Let me not bid farewell now but I’m planning not to commence the league with the team. I think I need to rest now,” hinted Kondowe .
However, the gifted winger has downplayed rumors that his retirement is due to his earlier announced intention of joining active politics.
“I don’t make haste decisions; it’s nothing to do with my political interest. I’m not doing this to satisfy any one. I only focus on my future and my personal goals,” said Kondowe.
The Big Bullets longest serving player further blamed football governing body for caring less to the welfare of retired players as many are left with nothing to show.
“When you play for the national team, that’s being an asset of the nation but here in Malawi the case is different due to some people who do not know how to run football affairs in different football governing bodies,” said he.
On professional football career, Kondowe has played for Bush Bucks, Black Leopards, and Bloemfontein Celtic in South Africa.
Statistics shows that the player was born on November 6, 1976.
Meanwhile, according to FIFA’s website, Fischer Kondowe has played 35 matches for the national team, out of which The Flames managed to win 21, losing 8 and just 6 as draws.
