Asu can be released: Wanderers coach fed up with Cameronian striker

Mighty Be Forward coach Elia Kananji has asked the club executive committee to send back Cameroonian player Lionel Asu or else release him so that he can join any team of his choice.

This follows Asu’s training boycott which has lasted about two weeks now.

According to Nyasa Times sources, the player is demanding his wages that includes a signing on fee which the Nomads were supposed to finish paying by 31st May, 2015 according to the player’s agent Prince Jere.

“Our supporters love the way the player has been performing and they always want to see him playing but since he has been boycotting training demanding his arrears, the executive just need to let him go,” Kananji told journalist after the match against resilient Mzuni which Nomads won 2-1.

According to Kananji, such behaviour shown by Asu is showing might bring confusion in the team as some players might as well start boycotting training or games demanding their arrears.

“He (Asu) need to change otherwise, we can’t tolerate that,” said Kananji.

Asu became a darling to Wanderers supporters after an impressive during the pre-season training and opening matches of the 2015 TNM Super League which he also scored a couple of vital goals.

  14. mxolisi lukhere says:

    pay him idiots. why did you give him a contract in the first place when you knew you had nothing to pay him? again, i wonder what a professional player is looking for in no – professional league. asu, this is an amateurish league, you are in a wrong place at the wrong time, buddy!!!!!!

  15. Phodos says:

    My dear Kananji be very careful with the journo who send s your photos to Nyasatimes, online newspaper. Last times the photojourno broke a joke when he was taking a photo from you, so that you should laugh, and you remember how people were entertained with your diastima, magweru. Look at you today. What are holding with your left hand down near your balls. Is it a cellphone or your shaft. Watch out bwana coach. More drammas about you on this page from the cameramen.

  16. Mzimba Solola says:

    I totally agree with the decision by Ksnanji that Asu should be released. If Wanderers is failing to pay him sign-on fees it means even paying him on monthly basis will be difficult. Am fade up with this Asu issue. We have good players in our camp, the combination of Jabulani Linje and Muhammad Sulumba could be very good for the success of the team, after all the team have managed to do well in the absence of Asu. Its very expensive to manage this player, please Executive, let him go and concentrate on revising the welfare of other players than paying huge sums of money to one player. I rest my case. I love Mighty Be Forward Wanderers FC.

  26. Ogo says:

    A Kananji!!! The problem is a Malawi ngati inu beleive that one can work without being paid and you feel its ok. I wonder if you are not being paid…Malawian players don’t do things zozithandiza..This Atsu guy should be supported by follow players it high time teams started nurturing ma players as they should. A contract is a contract..I am a Nomad but a contract is a contract, it should be honoured and if Nomads break the contract then they should pay for damages and breach of contract. SHUPITI!! Well done Atsu

  27. Pata phiri says:

  35. kakha erutu says:

    Kodi pamene mumamutenga munthu ameneyi mukafuna kuti akutameni ndani? Who did you want to please? Kananji, please give your brain a chance before you use your tongue. Just wagging carelessly like this will land your team into trouble and consequently ruin your career. I just pray that your executive is comprised of people with brain in the right places not under their tongues. Munthuyu mupaseni zache, musachuluke nzelu.

  36. Kondwani says:

    We can not afford to hire expensive players as of now and we all need to agree to that.Test it or you see the consequences.

  37. Thanduxolo says:

    A Kananji dziwani izi: Signing-on fee sifunika kuchedwetsa chonchi. Munthuyu ndi wakunja kotero kuti ndalama zake zonse amafunika kumpatsa kale lomwe. Chachiwiri nchakuti mukuyenera kumvetsa bwinibwino zomwe ziri mu contract yake. Apo iyayi mukhoza kupezeka kuti mukulankhula zinthu zomwe zimukuzimvetsa bwino lomwe. Munthuyu sakuvutitsa kungoti akufuna ndalama zake. Akakhala anyamata athu amdziko muno ena adazolowera kugwiritsidwa ntchito ngati akapolo ndithu. Chonde Asu zisamuchitikire zimenezi ndithu!

  38. Kevin jackson says:

    Very interesting indeed. Atsu need to be paid what is due to him otherwise Wanderers will pay heavily if the matter is taken to CAF. This is a proffessional player in a foreighn country under FiFA rules, So, do not take things for granted the guy must be paid.

  52. He should not become a thorn in a foot today, remember you employed him, pay him now.

  53. Bibo says:

    Kananji is proving that he is representing a system that doesn’t understand contractual issues.Where in this world do you sign a player from abroad and expect to use him without fulfilling his dues agreement?

    Malawian football hasn’t reached that stage yet where its clubs can attract and sign foreign players because clubs in Malawi are not independent in commercial matters,they depend on companies to finance their operations whose financial injections don’t suffice the needs of an established club.There is too much amateurism in the teams hence their incapacity to establish businesses to generate revenue.

    Telling officials to send the player back is not the solution and will end up hurting the Wanderers brand.The team will be obligated to pay everything the player is owed plus what is the total amount of the rest of the contract.I understand they pay this player from game collections,what a shame!

  54. opportunist says:

    Neba matama ungakwanise international

  55. Bomanile says:

    The country has lots of football talent that only requires nurturing. Why here a foreign player? Besides we do not have the resources to hire foreign players and that is why Mighty Be Forward are struggling to pay the player. Release him and find a replacement locally.

Mr Kananji take note kuti its management trying to bring confusion here nafenso we can’t tolerate that.

  59. Oh! says:

    Just pay him his dues. Why did you employ him if you don’t have the money?
