Football Association of Malawi (FAM) will today (Saturday) start hearing the appeal case between capital city side Silver Strikers and Be Forward Wanderers over Nigerian striker Babatunde Adepoju at the Mpira house in Blantyre.
The two sides are both denying ownership of the player after FAM through the first verdict which the central bankers appealed stated they pay Wanderers K8,000 000 and own the player. Silver Strikers knocked on Wanderers door for the striker which the nomads allowed him to sign a contract with the central bankers only for them to change their mind on the eleventh hour.
In an interview, FAM club licensing and compliance manager Casper Jangale confirmed the hearing is on today (Saturday) at Mpira house via video conference.
“The hearing of the appeal case between the two clubs over Babatunde is on today (Saturday) via video conference and we expect to conclude this case by the end of the coming week which should give relief to both the clubs and the player on the way forward”, said Jangale.
The wrangle has put the former Masters Security football club hitman in a dilemma as he has not been receiving his salary since March 2020 since no club between the nomads and the central bankers want to take ownership of the player.
