Civo United is bitter with Nyasa Big Bullets for unveiling their players Emmanuel Zoya and John Lanjesi to the public without their consent and stressed the players belongs to the capital city giants, since there is no deal signed between the two clubs.
Bullets unveiled Zoya and Lanjesi alongside Blantyre United striker Muhammad Sulumba and Azam Tigers goalkeeper Ernest Kakhobwe during their sponsorship signing deal with Nyasa Manufacturing Company in Blantyre.
Civo United general secretary Charles Mwenda told Nyasa Times that a player cannot sign a pre contract when he still has more than six months ahead.
He said they have not concluded any deals with Bullets so they are wondering how the Peoples Team could unveil their players.
“You do not unveil a player who is still contracted to another team. You negotiate with him and a pre-contract is end product of the negotiation but unveiling is done when the other contract expires.
“It is unfair that we are trying to be professional yet Bullets are not. We just gave them a go ahead to talk to the players not to unveil them to the public as if they are their players,” said Mwenda.
Mwenda advised Bullets to follow proper channels if they are serious on the two players.
He also insisted that if the Peoples Team are serious in roping in the two players they have to cough K8 million.
This will not be the first time for Lanjesi to attempt leaving Civo United because last season he went to Mighty Be Forward Wanderers, where his deal collapsed after disagreements between the Nomads and his club.
Mighty Be Forward Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao declined to comment anything on Sulumba’s move saying the Nomads will speak at an appropriate time.
