The inevitable happened amidst lots of speculation about what would happen next to the man who is topping the score charts half-way through the season. “That’s what I wanted you to prove me, I wanted you to make a name for yourself at a modest club so that you come back ready to drive the team to the top”, said Al Fateeh President Mr Saad Alafaliq as he passed through to meet Sakala at his base. Amidst speculative interest from the long-time admirers Orlando Pirates, Swedish side Djugardens and Iranian giants Esteghlal, it all came down to who had the most attractive offer and more seriouse to land the coveted leading goalscorer.
“I like the ambitious drive for success from Al Ta’ee, I heard they just rop in a new coach and new top quality players” said Saith Sakala as he selected the offers presented to him by his representative Joe Mhondiwa. It’s left to see if he can replicate his Al Nojoom form in his new base to double-up the 10 goal tally he carries at the moment despite missing first four matches of the season and a few more through suspension. There’s no doubt that , come summer there will be renewed interest from abroad and other strong local sides.
