Nchanga Rangers coach Fight Simukonda says AmaZulu-bound striker Bornwell Mwape has returned a different player from his recent trials in Europe.

The 22-year-old attended trials at Swedish club Malmo in February that fell through, before successfully sealing a deal with the South Africa Premiership club earlier this month.

However, Mwape will play for Nchanga until June when he is expected to join Amazulu for the 2014/2015 pre-season training.

“Bornwell is a different player ever since he came back from the trials,” Simukonda said. “He has become a better player, he is doing so well in training and we will miss him when he goes.”

Mwape will leave his childhood club where he began his football career after signing a three year deal with AmaZulu.

Simukonda said Nchanga will utilise Mwape to the fullest during the next four months before he finally leaves the Chingola-based club.

Mwape made his international breakthrough in 2013 after scoring on his Zambia debut on April 28 in a 2-0 friendly win over Zimbabwe at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

Meanwhile, Mwape won the 2013 Cosafa Cup with Zambia last July where he scored one goal and later scored two goals at the 2013 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Kenya where Chipolopolo appeared as guest side and finished third.
