Mpengesi says they have failed to find a striker that ticks all the boxes in the country and are forced to go outside the country to find what they are looking for.

“We have decided to look outside the country because we could not find the type of striker we need locally. We have one spot open for a foreigner,” Mpengesi told the Daily Sun.

The Chippa boss believes getting a top class striker will help the team finish in a better position in the league.

“The local strikers have been going through a rough patch and that makes it difficult to sign someone who will hit the ground running to help us finish the season in a better position than we did last season.”
