Stars migration to Mozambique irks Football Association of Malawi

The recent migration by Malawian players to Mozambique has irked Football Association of Malawi (FAM) accusing the footballers of not following proper procedures.

Nyasa Times understands that the players are leaving without informing and receiving blessings from the association.

FAM president Walter Nyamilandu has said his body is aware that the players are seeking greener pasture.

“We are aware of the exodus and we equally understand that there is good package but we want proper channels to be followed. We want the players to be having all the necessary papers to work in other countries particularly Mozambique,” said Nyamilandu.

“The players must also make sure that they sign contracts with the club to avoid problems,” he said while advising the player not just being excited of moving and play outside the country.

“Home is best; it is only in your country you can work freely,” said Nyamilandu.

Some of Malawian players who have stormed Mozambique and are playing in the top flight league include former Mighty Wanderers captain Joseph Kamwendo, Emmanuel Chipatala, Zicco Mkanda, and Gerald Mkungula among others.

One of Malawian born soccer agents George Martin has trashed claims by some quarters that the performance of Malawian players will go down.

Martin described the league as “competitive”.

He said those with fighting spirit will maintain their top form and keep their good shape.

Martin who was in the country to pick Vincent Chinthenga to try his luck in Mozambique said he will be back to meet FAM officials on how best exporting of Malawian players can best be tackled.

Chinthenga is to be crowned 2012/13 Malawi TNM Super League top goal scorer having scored eighteen goals.
