Malawi’s versatile midfielder Chikondi ‘Farook’ Likwemba has threatened to lodge a complaint against his former Mozambican Club, Ferroviario da Beira, to world soccer governing body Fifa for not honouring his contract after he left the club due to disagreements with his coach.
Club Ferroviário da Beira play in the Mozambique national league.
Likwemba, who jetted in the country on Saturday, told Nyasa Timesthat the club terminated his contract, which was supposed to elapse in December this year following his protest on favouritism player selection by the coach.
“My relationship with the coach soured because he was asking for money from me if l wanted to be featured, a thing which l protested. He then reported me to the management that he no longer was interested with my services and the club terminated my contract,” said Likwemba.
“My argument is that the club terminated my contract and they were supposed to pay me out right but to my surprise the coach misinformed the management that l agreed to be paid dues only for a month which was totally false,” he said.
Likwemba revealed that many players were not in good terms with the coach because he asks for kick backs from players to be featured.
“I had no problems with management of the team in fact they were impressed with services l rendered to the club but the coach himself was a problem,” said Likwemba, who joined the Mozambican club from Zimbabwe where he was playing for Platinum.
Likwemba, also formerly of FC AK from South Africa, said that he was looking forward to seek advice from Football Association of Malawi on the way forward .
Likwemba launched his national career with Mighty Wanderers before being loaned to Civo United where he was spotted by Escom United in Blantyre.
