Blessings Tembo opens up on his transfer saga with Wanderers

Silver Strikers captain Blessings Tembo has come out in the open to comment on the sensational  transfer saga after he signed  a three year deal  with champions Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on New Year’s eve and then terminated it.

Blessings Tembo: Unsettled, from Silver to Wanderers and then back

The player was photographed with a Nomads shirt at media unveiling and signed the contrcat, but never went on to play for the club.

“I have no contact with Wanderers for now,” said Tembo.

He confirmed that he signed the contract with Wanderers but has since claimed he did not understand what he was putting pen to paper for.

“I signed the contract under duress without reading and understanding all terms of the agreement,” Tembo said in a statement.

He has apparently rejoined his former club under ” duress” too.

“I am still a member of Silver Strikers Football Club at the time of signing, the contract has not yet come to an end today, including effective day of its operation of 29th December, 2017 and therefore it is irregular for me to sign a contract with Be Forward Wanderers Football Club,” reads part of the statement.

He said the transfer was being done “in a hurry and without paying attention to important details.”

“All issues show that this was an irregular contract and it is only fair that I pull out today, 31st December 2017,” reads the statement issued by Tembo

He then pleaded with Wanderers to respect his decision and that he did not pocket any money from the Malawi football kings.

“Therefore, Be Forward Wanderers Football Club in Malawi should take note that I have willfully pulled out of the agreement, terminated it and withdrawn my services. I have done this on the same day I was asked to sign the agreement and there have been no financial executions on both sides and my decision should be respected and for the good of football in Malawi,” he said.

The unsettled player hopes when legality of his contract is cleared he can mave the move to avoid playing football “under duress” too.

Wanderers General Secretary Mike Butao said  his club enquired from Football Association of Malawi on the players contract status with Silver before proceeding with signing the player.

He rejected assertions that Tembo signed for Wanderers under duress.

This is a stupid scenario. The player is as useless as he seems. That’s y our players struggle when they go outside because they understand nothing. Why sign for another club when u have a running contract with another club. You don’t have to be a graduate to understand this. Can someone give me this guys’ number or his agents’ number?

Silver will keep on loosing players coz have GS who is sleeping on his job. Is failing to negotiate contracts with players why waiting all the way for the contract to expire and wake up from the slumber. Tulo too much and ma player akuthawanidi simunati.

Commentators have repeatedly saying the Administrators at Silver Strikers fall short of the knowledge of the game. They have made decisions that have been seen to be silly at times and no wonder that translates to mediocre performance of the team on the pitch. No creativity and loss of the direction of the play that Silver is well known of.
These comments have been collaborated by renowned analysts of the like of Kim Kamawu , Jembajemba to mention a few.
Its time Silver strikers should be given straight penalties for their foolishness !!!!
