Be Forward Wanderers football club has sued capital city giants Silver Strikers to Football Association of Malawi (FAM) on how the team handled the transfer of striker Babatunde Adepoju.
The two clubs had initially agreed a deal worth K8 million for the former Masters security striker to join the central bankers. The team reversed their decision not to take on board the player despite having already sent the money to the nomads.
FAM through Casper Jangale has confirmed receiving a letter from the Lali Lubani side asking for their intervention as they want Silver Strikers to take Babatunde whom they paid for.
“Wanderers has written us a letter on how Silver Strikers handled the transfer of Babatunde Adepoju and together with the newly established players status committee we will look into the matter and see how we can resolve it,” Jangale said.
Jangale further said that when such issues happen, clubs should learn from it to avoid going through the same in the near future.
Babatunde who scored 15 goals for Wanderers last year in the TNM super league was chased by Silver Strikers to replace the gap left by their hitman Khuda Muyaba who left for Polokwane City in South Africa after winning the golden boot with 21 goals.
