Flames midfielder Hellings Mwakusungula left the country quietly on Saturday for Asia to undergo two weeks trials at Kingdom of Brunei’s side DPMM Football Club.
The Silver Strikers holding midfielder missed his team’s last weekend’s TNM Super League assignments when the bankers lost 1-0 to Nomads and drew with Zomba United one-all.
Mwakasungula posted about his trip on facebook and said that Brunei was a nice place to be.
However, Mwakasungula was non-committal to disclose the agent who facilitated the trials.
“I will be here up to next week. I will give you full details once I sort out everything,” he said.
According to information on internet, DPMM was officially established in 2000. The club started out as a college football team in 1994.
Silver Strikers coach Dan Dzinkambani said Mwakasungula missed the league matches because he had travelled out for a holiday.
Mwakasungula, who had a stint with South African Premier Soccer League Outfit Swallows, has been finding it tough to earn a regular place at Silver as he has to battle for the starting position with the likes of Harvey Mkacha and Peter Mwenda.
The arrival of Silvers latest acquisition Frank Banda from Civo United has also made life difficult for the Flames player.
Despite failing to be on the starting line-up for most of Silver games, Mwakasungula is still considered as one of the pillars of the national soccer team.
