The Bankers chairperson Dr McDonald Mafuta-Mwale was reacting to reports that the Nomads are trying to entice the two players in an attempt to strengthen their striking force.
“They [Wanderers] can never buy Tony Chitsulo or Rodrick. If they want, then they should start by buying me as chairperson.
“Their move is unsettling and unfair because the players have not indicated that they are leaving Silver Strikers. Actually, Tony stays in my house. When I asked him about it, he expressed ignorance. In fact, they cannot join Wanderers.
“Silver does not sell players, we only release. So, if Wanderers are on a campaign to impress their supporters, then they better find another way,” said Mafuta-Mwale.
The two players could not be reached for comments on Tuesday.
However, the Nomads general secretary David Kanyenda could neither deny nor confirm his teamâ€™s interest in the two players.
“What I can say is that we would like to beef up our striking force because during our review meeting recently, we realised that we scored fewer goals last season and that partly contributed to our failure to win the league.
“Of course, several names have been thrown into fray, but I cannot say which ones we are targeting to avoid jeopardising the potential deals,” said Kanyenda.
But the Nomads spokesperson confirmed that their former midfielder Chikondi Likwemba has been training with the club following the collapse of his deal with Mozambican club Ferroviario de Beira.
“We are in talks with Chikondi and Escom Unitedâ€™s Chimango Kaira. Lumbani Munthali of Azam Tigers is the other player likely to join us,” said Kanyenda.
Silver are the reigning TNM Super League champions whereas the Nomads finished third.
