‘I wanted to rest’
Nkana have travelled to Zimbabwe for pre-season training minus want-away striker Walter Bwalya.
Bwalya is missing from the Nkana delegation that arrived in Zimbabwe on Tuesday ahead of a week-long training camp.
The 2016 FAZ Super Division top scorer recently went AWOL as he tried to join Algeria side MC Alger.
“I just want to rest a bit for now but I will join the team when it comes from Zimbabwe. I am around in Zambia and doing personal training,” Bwalya said on Thursday.
The player, who has publicly spoken about his desire to leave Kalampa, is yet to train with his team mates this year owing to his unfruitful trip to Algeria.
Bwalya made a cameo appearance at the Nkana awards gala night last Saturday to pick the club’s top scorer award hours just after returning to Zambia.
Meanwhile, Nkana are in Zimbabwe getting ready for the 2018 season in which they will compete in the CAF Confederation Cup.
