Former Brave Warriors lethal winger Eslin ‘Lovers’ Kamuhanga is the talk of the town in the northern German metropolis of Flensburg, having impressed the locals with his speed, skills and amazing ball-passing accuracy.
Kamuhanga, who is currently based in Flensburg, plies his trade in that country’s 5th Division with TSB Flensburg Football Club. He has quickly stolen the hearts of many residents with his different approach to the game – having brought a new dimension to his club’s style of play with his fast-paced on-the-ball skills.
New Era Weekend Sport traced the former Ramblers, Civics, Black Africa and African Stars deadly left winger-cum-midfielder, who had this to say: “I’m enjoying myself out here and trying to further grow as a player and as an individual. My team (TSB Flensburg) plays in Germany’s 5th Division but it’s very competitive, I’m telling you … my teammates are quite friendly and we enjoy playing together as a team.”
“Here the level of football is very high when compared to back home as we also play against some of the Bundesliga’s biggest clubs in the DFB-Pokal, which is like the NFA Cup back home. Up north here in Flensburg, Collin Benjamin’s former club Hamburg is the biggest team in the region.”
The DFB-Pokal or German Cup is a German knockout competition held annually, wherein 64 teams participate, including all clubs from the Bundesliga and Bundesliga-2.
“It is so competitive that the gap between the Bundesliga teams and those in other divisions is really not that big. Teams here have all the facilities so our fitness levels are always top notch.”
Widely hailed as one of the best left-footed footballers Namibia has ever produced, Kamuhanga has so far played three matches and scored two goals. He says he wants to continue improving with every match and score more goals for the team.
The TSB Flensburg crowd favourite joined the club on a season-long contract and plans to stay further in the German setup even if it’s with TSB Flensburg, or another club upon expiry of his contract.
“I only signed for one season with TSB Flensburg, so at the end of the season I will see if I will move to a much bigger division or play further with TSB Flensburg. Or even move to Denmark – I’m just not sure at the moment.”
