Civo yet to give Thupi signing on fee


Former Civo Service United football club midfielder Patrick Thupi has sued the club at the Football Players Association (FPA) over his K500, 000 the club is failing to give him as part of his 2019 season signing on fee.

FPA general secretary Enerst Mangani has confirmed receiving a letter from the former Nyasa Big Bullets and Blantyre united football club midfielder asking them to help him get his money from the servants.

“He came to us with his issue that Civo Service United is failing to give him his money amounting to K500, 000 and we have asked him to submit all the necessary papers like his contract which might have the necessary information as to when he was supposed to receive the money so that we take it from there,” he said.

Commenting on the matter, Civo Service United general secretary Ronald Chiwaula said the club had a few challenges that delayed the processes of him receiving his money.

“Thupi was released after the 2019 season as the coaches said he was not in their plans for the next season but that’s not the reason we failed to give him K500, 000 which was part of his signing on fee.”

“As a government sponsored side, we were waiting to receive funding from the government to give him the money. We even tried to give him K100, 000 which we managed to source but he refused receiving the money saying he want to receive the full amount at once. So he is likely to receive the money once we get funding from the government,” said Chiwawula.
