The Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has dismissed Escom United FC claims that they are failing to enforce their request that Big Bullets should stop using their three playersâ€”Chimango Kaira, Heston Munthali and James Chilapondwa.
Escomâ€™s chairperson Fanuel Nkhono on Monday blamed the flagship league governing body of taking a soft approach on Bullets over the issue
“Sulom are to blame for failing to enforce our request for the players to stop featuring based on copy letters given to them by hand.
“These players are featuring illegally because the loan period expired and we fail to understand why Sulom are not acting over the matter,” said Nkhono.
However, in a response sent through e-mail on Monday, Sulom vice- general secretary Captain Thoko Chazema said the concerned parties agreed that Bullets can still use the players until the end of the season.
“The information I have is that the concerned parties discussed and agreed that the players can be used for the rest of the season,” stated Chazema.
However, Nkhono insisted that at no point did they agree to extend the loan period for the trio.
“That is not true. All the three players are supposed to return to us because their loan period expired and Bullets have not issued payment of the transfer-fee that we asked for,” said Nkhono
Escom are demanding K6 million (about $20 000) as transfer fee for the trio.
However, Bullets claim the price is on the higher side.
