Wanderers hit back at Cameroonian player: ‘Asu is not special’

Mighty Be Forward Wanderers have hit back at Cameroonian Lionel Asu for his sporadic appearances for the club due to contractual misunderstandings.

Asu: On boycot

Asu: On boycot

The player’s agent, Prince Jere, said Asu is frustrated with Wanderers’ failure to pay him his dues

According to the contractual agreement, Asu is supposed to get K3.5 million (US$7 778) signing-on fee.

Jere said Asu “ only got K1.4 million (US$3 111), that translates to a K2.1 million (US$4 667) balance.”

He said the player is “struggling to make ends meet.”

Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao in plain language said Asu was given enough money to cater for his standard accommodation but the Cameroonian decided to check-in at a lodge.

Butao, who declined to divulge more into the issue said, Wanderers had nt money to pay players’ accommodation at a lodge.

“What is happening with Asu is unfortunate. I don’t want to comment much on this. But what people should know is that we paid him enough money for his accommodation,” Butao visibly concerned said.

“Wanderers have no money to pay players and officials for accommodation at a hotel and Asu is not special.”

Meanwhile coach Elia Kananji said Asus’s no-show at training and matches could have a negative impact on the rest of the players.

“I am very concerned with this situation because it is creating unnecessary tension and panic among the team. It kills team spirit,’ Kananji said.

“I have already informed the executive committee to find out whether he wants to stay or go otherwise I would rather have committed players than people who are decided.”

Asu has been boycotting training last week to press Wanderers to pay him his outstanding signing on fee.

The Cameroon has become a hit at the club after joining the club but his off the pitch antics have dominated his life.

Wanderers have moved to position second with 18 points just one behind league leaders Bullets FC. But the Blues have a game in hand over Bullets who have played nine games

    Nyerere should trade carefully on the issues. These are people who are clever know what should be in their contracts. Otherwise, if you are not carefully you will pay heavily to this guy through CAF even FIFA. Football administrators without knowledge kkkkkkk

  20. Phodogoma says:

    This is a beater lesson to Malawians. I mean is it a strange for a player of Atsu caliber to stay in lodges. This is what players in other countries do. Kananji the coach if you are poor and you never taste lodge life, then thats wrong. With K50 pini you were receiving from our neba I dont think you could have tested lodge life at all.If anything you go for cheaper rest house.Let me use chichewa here mungayese kuti ndine Asu. Wonders you are throwing big stones on somebody who is stoneless and throwingless. He is not fighting back at all.All what he need is for you to pay him what is in his contract. He knows what it means being paid K2 million. Asu is not like the foolish players we have here in Malawi who do not afford even resthouse life . They become very poor while they are still playing football. That is not those guys from north and west Africa at all.PAY him please. That is the reason playing soccer in other countries is considered employment.

    Koma neba asu akulima zedi. Udumphe kaya utani asu umulipiratu. Mesa muli pa contract. Kodi mulibe maloya. Kafunseni kuti kodi contract ndi chiyani. Ku court simungaime inu ayi.Asu wawina kale basi.

  24. smadav says:

    Mlekeni awerenge kwawo uyo.

  25. Afanaze says:

    I totally agree what Asu does off the field especially how he spends his money has nothing to do with what you guys agreed on paper. Be smart people pay him what u owe otherwise it could become costly soon or later to settle with this guy.
    This is a lesson to all Malawi clubs. Sign contractual foreign plyers if u have a major plan to win not only the national league but have further intentions to play in the world stage. This is premature to start these kind of contracts maybe wait until clubs switch to professional gig.idk

    shame kkk

  27. VYOTO says:

    The whole Malawi Nation is being embarrassed by the blindless Wanderers Officials.As long as there is a binding contract, the demands of the player must be honoured.It is total madness to expect a foreign player to lead a substandard life in foreign country.Do you expect him to go and buy cheap BONYA at Ndirande Market???????????????????? or rent a substandard house at Ndirande Golio.Here is a case where “the Control is under situation, really”

  38. manunkha says:

    I can say I am not a vivid soccer fan tho i follow local football events. I will give my sober opinion on this issue. Firstly, wanderers should understand what a contract is. If u agreed to pay the player K10, then pay him his K10. Where he stays is non of ur business. If he decides to stay at Mount Soche Hotel or Ryalls Hotel, thats non of ur business. So wanderers officials should not act clever here. U r the ones who are wrong. Pay the player what u agreed. Dont talk about team spirit. Pay him his money. Maybe he wants to send some to his village. Wanderers officials are to blame for this and dont try to be heroes. U were stupid from the begining when u thot u can afford a foreign player.

  39. Musova, Anabwera yekha? mmesa munachita kukamuputa?

  40. Kondwani says:

    Officials should take it to book.As Malawians, let us encourage and develop our local football before we begin to recruit new legs.We need to develop more Sulumbas and Meya Bandas.

    Kodi ku Malawi kuno kulibe ma player? Munthu achoke kwaoko ati professional ku Malawi. Kodi sanapita ku Mozambique bwanji? Ife a Malawi sitinafike pokhala ndi ma professional players. Ampatse zake basi ameneyi ndipo aadzipita. Chiphinjo ku team chimenechi.

    A Malawi akangomva kuti west Africa amakhala busy, jojoli jojoli kususuka kwambiri. Azimai ndiye eeh kufera fiction ya Nigerian movies. Kaya zanu izo.Me Americano dont knee for nobody.

  46. Kadushu says:

    It’s not the player who wants to be special it was the club which treated the player as special. You even forget that you have local players who are good as well. Deal with the issue now or face problems

  47. ujeni says:

    Ngati kuli anthu osusuka in Africa, Malawians are on first position. West Africans will always nyela on you because of kususuka.
