Wanderers’ general secretary Mike Butao has said the club feels Assu is being “misled” by his representatives. His local representative is Prince Jere

Assu has made a counter-offer to Wanderers to sign him which includes a $10 000 (about K4.5 million) signing-on fee and a $2 000 (about K1 million) monthly salary.

Butao however said “it is our intention to reach an agreement.”

The Cameroonian told MBC Radio 2FM that he was concerned that the Nomads are not responding to his offer.

“I gave them my offer, but there has been no response. They need to tell me their position because if they cannot manage then I can join other teams that are interested in my services.

“There are teams in countries such as Spain, France and even locally,” said Assu.

Assu said he was asked by Be Forward president who is based in Japan where he once played to join Mighty Wanderers in Malawi.

The 21-year-old star had stints in Japan and Denmark.

The highest paid players in the Super League earn in the range of K30 000 to K40 000 month.

Apart from Assu, the Nomads also have Nigerian trialist Olashipe James Tolulope.

As an ordinary man, I can see that the problem here is the fact that this young man is not being told the truth that we can not afford to pay him such an astronomical amount of money in Nyasaland. Someone is being economical with the truth here instead of being honest about it. Come on tell the lad the truth.
