Azam Tigers have stopped Blue Eagles from using striker Charles Ngosi over unpaid transfer fees of K1.5 million.
This means Eagles will not be able to feature the striker in this afternoon’s game against TNM Super League leaders Mafco FC at Nankhaka in Lilongwe.
Tigers wrote Super League of Malawi (Sulom) instructing the league runners to withhold the player’s clearance until the Malawi Police Service side settles the fee that dates back to 2011.
Last week, Ngosi was part of the Blue Eagles squad that travelled to Blantyre to play Tigers.
But assistant coach, Wilson Chidati, was forced to withdraw the player at the eleventh hour upon receiving communication from Sulom.
Executive committee member, Alfred Lungu, informed Eagles not to use the player in the game that ended one-all.
Tigers FC’s technical director, Robin Alufandika, confirmed that his club had sought the intervention of Sulom regarding the future of Ngosi because the cops have been reluctant to pay.
‘I think we have been patient enough for four years, but not this time around. We want our money and mind you, we will not accept instalments,” he said.
“Giving us our money in full will be enough solace befitting our four year-long wait.”
Blue Eagles team manager, Gabriel Chirwa, suspected that Tigers deliberately stopped them from using Ngosi as they were afraid of the veteran forward.
