Wanderers against transfers to Mozambique


Local football giants, Mighty Wanderers have stressed that they will lead a campaign against players switching to neighboring Mozambique, saying the foreign clubs violate transfer rules.

The former Portuguese colony has taken South Africa’s place as a popular destination for Malawi domestic league players, with prospect of good payment making the offers irresistible.

A number of teams in the country’s flagship league have of late lost their best arsenal to Mozambican clubs. Wanderers general secretary, Mike Butao, has confirmed their readiness to lead the campaign against moves to Mozambique.

In an interview with the local media, he lamented over foreign clubs’ tricks in getting hold of players from Malawi.

The nomads lost their goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa to a Mozambican league club, a move which saw transfer regulations getting overlooked.

The player was under contract at the Lali Lubani boys but the Mocambola league side acquired him on what is understood to be a free transfer.

It appears there was no agreement between the two teams forcing the Blantyre blues to protest.

Butao was quoted as saying that local clubs get players at high costs but their Mozambican counterparts involve all sorts of tricks in getting the players either on free transfer or on loan. In this respect, domestic clubs make losses when in real sense they deserve a reward.

He described this as a major setback in Malawi football and urges Mozambican clubs to observe transfer rules.

Players however have always blamed the trend on minimal finances; they argue Mozambican clubs prioritizes players’ welfare with handsome wages whereas the opposite is said to be true for Malawians. They are guided by the theory, “football is a short term career.”

According to local soccer analysts, economic forces are a prime factor in killing domestic football. On a sad note, a myriad of players that have clinched deals in the neighboring country are considered to have engaged in talks with foreign clubs without first getting permission from their mother clubs.

Considering that clubs are not there to stand in their players’ way, they do let them follow their instincts. Football Association of Malawi (Fam) president Walter Nyamilandu vowed to put welfare of players ahead of everything after securing a fourth term in office. Although time is passing, very little has been done.
