Sulom warns Wanderers and Civo on Lanjesi saga

Super League of Malawi (Sulom) general secretary Williams Banda has said Flames defender John Lanjesi can only be registered in the second round after transfer window is open even if the saga between Civo United and Mighty Be Forward Wanderers is sorted out.

Lanjesi ditched Civo United but is unable to move to Mighty Wanderers due to a dispute over his contract.

Civo refused to release the player on understanding that he signed a pre-contract with the Lilongwe outfit prior to signing a similar contract with Wanderers.

Lanjesi and Wanderers sought Sulom intervention.

However, Banda said even if Wanderers can have the player it will be impossible to feature him because the team already registered 30 players.

“Lanjesi cannot be registered now because transfer window is closed. He can only be registered in the second round,” said Banda.

Sulom also advised Lanjesi and his parent club, Civo, to decide the transfer fee to allow the player join Wanderers.

Sulom used part of Bosman ruling to advise Lanjesi and Civo to settle the issue jointly.

Tiya Somba Banda, Sulom treasurer, said the player is contracted to Civo and besides that, he also signed a pre-contract with Wanderers.

Banda said since the player is interested to move to another team, then he should agree with Civo on the amount to be involved.

It was however, also reported that the player still has a running contract with Civo until 2017 despite signing a pre-contract with Nomads.

Flames coach Young Chimodzi warned Lanjesi that he risks losing his place in the Flames unless he gets a club and starts playing matches in the TNM Super League.

But Holman used to play for Malawi as a free agent and Young knows about that. So why sendng a warning to Lanjezi? As long as he is match fit and able to deliver, let him play for Mother Malawi. It’s not the club that plays for the national team.
