Asu is undergoing trials at Wanderers but the forward was controversially injured during match to celebrate the launch of Be Forward Wanderers launch of the sponsorship against Silver Strikers.

The Cameroonian suffered facial injuries including a cut which was treated to three stitches.

Asu’s injury eventually led to violence which started with Wanderers players exchanging verbal tirade with their Silver counterparts which spilled over to the stands.

Nomads team manager Steve Madeira said Asu has been given seven days of rest.

“It was a nasty foul which was not supposed to happen considering the nature of the game. T was just a friendly game but some players took it hard. The tackle was understandable but stepping on his face was juts barbaric,” he said.

Madeira said it was big blow for both the player and Wanderers as one week took long to disrupt him from settling down.

“He is trying to settle at Wanderers and the coaches are also assessing him. Anyway we hope the incident will not affect psychologically,” he said.

Asu came in as second-half substitute for unimpressive Victory Nyirenda and made an immediate impact when he forced goalkeeper Blessings Kameza to make a fine save.

Everything said, I question the career ambition of this so called Cameroonian player. Any serious player wouldn’t come to Malawi for professional football. Even Malawian players go to Mozambique, South Africa etc. May be he is a dissident masquerading as a footballer
