Cameroonian forward Lionel Asu has dumped Mighty be Forward Wanderers after a lengthy contractual dispute, his manager Prince Jere has confirmed.
Jere yesterday told The Nation that he has already informed the Nomads about his client’s decision and they are hoping to process mutual termination of his contract today.
“Asu is done with Wanderers. We are in the process of terminating his contract and already some South African top league clubs have shown interest to sign him. He should be travelling there very soon.
“It is unfortunate that Wanderers were not being straightforward as regards their contractual obligations. It is sad that things have reached this point, but push came to shove” said Jere.
However, Jere could not be drawn to comment on whether his client will demand his K2.1 million (US$4 667) signing-on fee balance having been paid K1.4 million (US$3 111).
Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao said he was not aware of Asu’s decision.
“But I know I have a meeting with him tomorrow. In any case, if he wants to opt out of his contract to go and sort out his personal issues, we are ready to release him,” said Butao.
Asu joined Wanderers at the start of the season and has made sporadic appearances. He has scored three league goals.
