Veteran midfield maestro Joseph Kamwendo has demanded to leave Wanderers Football Club and – understandably – the Nomads haven’t taken it well. The Nomads are determined to keep hold of their star man and will not let him go.
Apparently, Silver Strikers are dangling K9million siging on fee for the 30-year-old midfielder to dump Wanderers.
This has unsetteled the player who has tendered a resignation letter to force a transfer away despite having a two-year contract.
The playmaker cites the club’s failure to fulfil some contractual obligations and said he has decided to leave Wanderers “on mutual consent” .
“I believe I will depart with blessings of the entire executive and that my selfless contribution to the club will always be appreciated,” said Kamwendo in his resignation letter tendered on Tuesday.
“Wanderers Football Club is my home; I am leaving with fond memories and I believe I will, in future, serve the club in whatever role that will be available. I wish the club all the best as it continues to foster its presence as a leading footballing club in the country,” he added.
But Nomads vice-chairperson Gift Mkandawire said the club will not sell him and they will not accept his resignation.
He saida contract termination between Kamwendo and Wanderers “has not been discussed so far” and that he remains a Wanderers player.
“We are not going to sell him. We gave him two-year contract because we want him to stay with us,” said Kamwendo.
Football Association of Malawi player transfer matching system manager Casper Jangale called for the two sides to sort the matter amicably.
