Karonga united seek FAM guidance on player’s contracts


Northern region TNM super league side Karonga united want to meet with Football Association of Malawi (FAM) to guide them on how to handle issues to do with contracts of players that will expire in December.

According to general secretary for the club Ramsey Simwaka, they are worried about seeing the time ticking on the clock. The 2020 season has not yet started while the contracts of the players are coming to an end and they don’t know what they will do come December.

“We have a number of players that will see their contracts expiring in December this year and have not yet played any game this year up to now being July, we feel the time is not on our side as we need to start planning in good time of what we will do in December hence our wish for FAM to give us guidance in good time,” Simwaka said.

In its response, FAM club licensing and compliance manager Casper Jangale said it’s up to the clubs to open up new negotiations with the players once the current deals come to an end.

“We are waiting for the government on when we can start the season and we can advise teams not to engage in signing new players but to those players whose contracts will come to an end in December then it’s up to the two parties to sit down and see how they can work it out but that will mean the contract has ended,” Jangale said.
