Wanderers accuse FA Malawi of ‘double standards’ over Chande’s contract saga

Remarks  made by Football Association of Malawi (FAM) general secretary Sugzo Nyirenda on midfielder maestro Jaffali Chande have angered Mighty Be Forward Wanderers and they have accused him of playing “double standards” on the issue.

Nyirenda told the media on Wednesday that wanderers have no business in Chande’s issue forgetting the player signed a pre-contract with the Nomads.

Wanderer’s general secretary Mike Butao have described Nyirenda’s comments as “misguided” and wondered why FAM is failing to conclude the matter despite former Nyasa Big Bullets general secretary Harold Fote testified to them that contract which the player submitted to FAM was original.

“Football administrators should not be militant. Wanderers have every interest in Chande’s case. If Chande is guilty and it transpires that we were wrong to sign him, are we not going to be punished?

“What about if he is innocent and his contract really did expire, are we going to be compensated for loss of service during this unnecessarily protracted investigation? Are we, therefore, wrong to ask for a speedy resolution?” Butao further quizzed.

He went on to question FAM’s credibility in handling the whole matter by being silent on Nyasa Big Bullets officials who took football matters to a court of law.

“And why is FAM silent on the issue of Bullets officials taking this football matter to court when they are quick to condemn and discipline others for similar offences? Why the double standards? If this matter was being handled by Sulom, as should have been the case the matter would have been resolved long time ago.

“We don’t care who is right or wrong. We just want a conclusion to this whole thing so that everybody can move on. We are spending money on legal fees to help the boy defend himself on a matter he might be innocent of. So how can somebody say we shouldn’t be concerned,” he wondered.

Last weekend, former Bullets general secretary Harold Fote testified that Chande’s contract which he submitted to FAM was original.

“Although l was given copies of the two contracts, my testimony was based on what l know on the issue. As such l did not discard the two contracts, but rather l testified having offered Chande a one and a half year-contract which ran from August 2014 to March 2016,” he was quoted in the media.

However, many soccer pundits have also questioned FAM on how they are handling the whole Chande’s saga since it has now taken weeks without any light at the end of the tunnel.

For instance, the player was told by FAM not to train until his verdict. The League also kicked-off last weekend yet the player is still in dark on his future, which FAM has in its hands.

Nyirenda defended his statement saying the Nomads should wait until the issue is sorted out.

Stupid Suzgo and his entire FAM. What do they exactly want or to do with innocent Chande. The one who signed the contract has authenticated that Chande submitted to FAM an original copy of the contract. What else do they want?? I wonder what capacity do these guys have at FAM. Suzgo and your friends, please, just resign if you cannot manage to deliver….. Period!!!!!!!
