Still three opted for Kumwenda


Football Association of Malawi (FAM) club licensing and compliance manager Casper Jangale says midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda has three options to resolve his case with Blue Eagles football club and should not just concentrate on an option to compensate the club.

The midfielder wants to move out of the area 30 based club and join Be Forward Wanderers after the two sides failed to agree on a transfer fee to complete a move which made the player to resign at Blue Eagles and signed a three years contract with the Nomads.

Eagles appealed the case to FAM whom in it’s verdict ordered Kumwenda to return to his parent club and gave him three options to use for an exit at the club. Among the option FAM ordered Kumwenda to compensate Eagles for his remaining months of his contract and gave room for fresh negotiations between Eagles and any team that want the club.

Negotiations for Kumwenda to buy the remaining six months of his contract have failed after he tabled K1.2 million with the club wanting K3.5 million which made the player to take the case back to FAM for intervention with the FA’s club licensing and compliance manager Casper Jangale saying the earlier stand on the case still stand.

“We gave three options to help all the involved parties in the case to choose from and end this but we were amazed to receive the case back from the player after he failed to agree with the club on how much he should pay as compensation for the remaining months of his contract. Compensating the club was one of the options we gave and they should also use the other options but we can not come in with the price on which the player can be sold at”, said Jangale.
