Richard Chipuwa left the country for Mozambique last week for trials without the consent of his parent club where he impressed and was offered a one year deal worth K3.6 million.

However, Wanderers have reacted angrily towards the news saying its an abormination for the player to be offered a contract without the knowledge of his parent club. “What we know is that Richard is our player.

”His contract with us will run up to 2018 and we are surprised to hear that he has been offered a one year deal else where without our consent.”

“I have never seen a club without discipline like Chingale FC and let me be clear, he won’t get any clearance from us if he thinks that he is clever. We are waiting to see him arriving for pre-season training next month,” said Nomads general secretary Mike Butao.

He also revealed that the player never informed them of his decision to travel to Mozambique. Chipuwa made it clear at the end of last season that he was looking for a new challenge away from Lali Luban where he has been playing since 2006.
