Lilongwe, February 11, 2019: A Malawian female football player, Ratipher Malunjika has started off well at the South African based team, Santos Ladies Football Club in Cape Town, South Africa and is expected to play her first game on February 14, 2019.

This development comes after the attacker, who has been playing in the Malawi National Women’s team since 2012, successfully earned a place in the club after successful trials on January 26, 2019.

In an interview with Malawi News Agency on Thursday, the 27 year old player, who hails from Njewa Village in Lilongwe, says she is overwhelmed with the support rendered to her at the club.

“I didn't except I would be welcomed like this. Even during the trials everyone was so warm and friendly that I didn't feel like I am on trials but as one of them already,” said Malunjika.

She added that she sees the development as a major stride in her career and that she hopes to go far with the football career which she is so passionate about.

“I can see my future is very bright and have no doubts about it. All thanks to Touchline Sports Agency and my manager,” Malunjika said.

Malunjika’s Manager, Prince Jere, said he is proud of the player since she is one of the most skillful, experienced and humble players in the country.

“We hope our relationship with this player will continue. It is not easy to get good deals for players. This deal has encouraged us and many young players out there, it has shown  there is a wonderful future in football only if they work hard,” said Jere.

Malunjika encouraged her fellow female football players to work hard, respect their coaches as well as the whole team management and remember to pray to God to achieve their dreams.
