Midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda has come in the open to denounce that he will not play for Blue Eagles football club despite the football association of Malawi (FAM) verdict that he belongs to the police headquarters side.
Wrangles erupted between Blue Eagles and Be forward Wanderers after the later failed to pay Blue Eagles K3,5 million after asking for his services which frustrated the midfielder forcing him to resign at the club and later signed a three years deal with the Nomads.
The 2019 FISD challenge cup winners wrote to FAM seeking legal advice as they felt the Nomads were involved in player taping which made the player to resign.
In a verdict released by FAM early this week, the FA has stated the former Kabwafu FC midfielder wrongfully terminated his contract against FIFA and FAM Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP) and that he should return to Blue Eagles. The Verdict further gave room to the two sides for a fresh business negotiation if they are still interested in buying the player.
Speaking in an interview, Kumwenda said he will go back to Blue Eagles for negotiations and not to play for the club as his mind is already out of area 30.
“We need to respect the verdict given by FAM as they say proper procedures were not followed in how I terminated my contract with the club and that I still belong to Blue Eagles. I will talk to my manager to meet at the club but bearing in mind that I am going there for negotiations and not to play for the team.
“I have played my part at the club and it’s time to move on to other challenges in life and I already have my parents blessings for my next move,” he said.
