Chande was reportedly in Lilongwe where he was talking to several clubs for a possible transfer.


The midfielder said he was happy to be back at Wanderers and faulted Wanderers supporters social media groups for propagating false stories regarding his absence.


“I had issues to sort out and I could not be reporting for training. if I had disagreements with my colleagues, I wouldn’t have come back. All stories that were being spread regarding my absence are false and detrimental to the club,” said Chande.


Wanderers captain Alfred Manyozo Jnr claimed that all players have “warmly welcome’ Chande and look forward to turning the tables in the Super League.


The Nomads are on position 13 on the 16 member log table with eight points from six games.


“With the return of Chande and Ishmael Thindwa, the team will have no excuses for not scoring. The team is in good shape but it needs everybody’s backing.


Manyozo echoed Chande’s call to Wanderers supporters to desist from giving negative image of club on social media and stakeholders fighting each other on social media, newspapers and radios all the time.


“The team is eager and ready to start delivering but needs positive influence from the supporters. We have three games in hand against the league leaders and if we work together and win all of them we will only be four points behind the leaders,” said Manyozo Jnr.


Meanwhile, Chande’s return has largely excited some Wanderers supporters, saying he will add the steam to the team.


One of the supporters, Anthony Binali said the team was missing the services of Chande, who according to him, is not only cool and collective, but also good both on the ground and in the air.


“Chande is a complete striker and will certainly help the team rediscover the rhythm. We are excited that the two parties have ironed out their differences and we are looking forward to registering positive results,” said Binali, a resident of Bangwe.
