Wanderers stop signing of Nigerian stars, downplays Bello legal challenge

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) already cleared the registration of  24-years Oluwa, a product of Shiba football academy.

But  Wanderers general secretary  Mike Butao said there has been change of heart.

Butao said there has been “a lot of negative talk” in the Nomads family over the signing Nigerian players.

While some believe the Nigerians will add depth to the squad, others are of the view that the Nomads already have good players but they are disenfranchised because the club gives good contracts package to foreign stars including Japanese player Genki Nakamula.

Butao said the club will review the decision  to sign the Nigerians later.

Meanwhile, Butao has dismissed as not true that Nigerian striker Amos Bello has sued Be Forward Wanderers over outstanding K2.5 million signing-on fees.

Press reports indicated that the lanky striker said has sued the Nomads because he felt the club treated him unfairly by failing to honour the contractual agreements.

Butao said there is no legal suit but said the club delayed to  pay the player’s outstanding dues arguing that the sponsorship is paid in instalments.
