Be Forward Wanderers says it will not renew striker Amos Bello’s contract, ending two years of association with the Nigerian.
Bello’s contract will expire on Wednesday next week, according to his manager David Kamwendo who said that Wanderers had not shown interest to retain the forward.
In an interview yesterday, Nomads chairperson Gift Mkandawire said the Nigerian striker, who was injured for the better part of last season, is not in their plans.
“Unless we get fresh recommendations from the technical panel asking him to stay, Amos, at the moment, is not in our plans,” he said.
Mkandawire brushed aside suggestions that he was being released over injury concerns, saying: “Last season he recovered nearly midway through the season. However, his performance has not been satisfactory.”
Bello’s manager, meanwhile, has said they are waiting for a release letter before they start to map the way forward.
“Right now he is a Wanderers player and has been training with them.
“He has been receiving upkeep allowances and other contractual benefits. But once that stops after his contract expires, then we will see what will be next,” he said.
Kamwendo said there are “a lot of clubs interested to sign Bello which I cannot disclose right now until a deal is done with one of them”.
The Nigerian signed for the Nomads in April, 2016 following a recommendation from his compatriot and football icon Jay Jay Okocha.
