Assu said he was being frustrated because Wanderers have not being honest on honouring the signing on fee the two parties agreed on.

“I am being frustrated. Last week they said they would pay me Tuesday and On Tuesday they said they would pay me on Friday,” Assu said.

The player also denied having signed one-year deal as earlier alleged.

“I only filled TNM Super League registration form,” he said.

“I can only pay me the sign a contract if they pay me the signing on fee.”

His agent Prince Jere confirmed the development but he was optimistic that the Nomads would sort out the player’s signing on fee issue.

“Assu trained on Tuesday but has not gone back to training because there are issues he has to sort out such as finding a house,” Jere said.

“He is indeed waiting for his money and let’s hope they pay him Friday. So he can play on Sunday against Epac. Wanderers General Secretary Mike Butao swallowed his pride to say that the player delayed to sign a contract because of some issues which have since been sorted.

“What we did actually was to ensure that his registration with Super League of Malawi is done because of the [April 13] deadline,” Butao said.

Assu demanded US$10,000 (K4.5 million) signing on fee but the two parties agreed to lower the figure which they have kept a tight lid.

The player once threatened to leave to Malawi if his demands were not met saying he has offers in France.
But he said he was buoyed by the affection of Wanderers supporters according to him since his arrival.
