TNM Super League giants Nyasa Big Bullets are sweating over the clearance of playmaker Nelson Kangunje.
Kangunje signed a two-year deal with the People’s Team last week, but Bullets failed to feature him during their Super League match against Civil Sporting Club last Sunday due to International Transfer Certificate (ITC) complications.
The former Civo United midfielder terminated his contract with Mozambican side Costal do Sol after just five months at the club.
Bullets, who will face Blantyre United at Mulanje Park Stadium on Sunday, started the season on a low, failing to score in four consecutive matches.
Bullets Interim General Secretary, Albert Chigoga, said in view of the closure of the international transfer window, Football Association of Malawi (Fam) Transfer Matching System Manager, Casper Jangale, has referred Kangunje’s matter to Fifa.
“We are still talking to Fam over Kangunje’s ITC and let me appreciate the role which Fam is playing to clear the player. The problem is that the issue is in Fifa’s hands, so much as we want him to play, we cannot use him until Fam receives the go ahead to issue us the ITC,” Chigoga said.
Jangale said he does not know when Fifa will clear the player.
“We indicated to Fifa everything that happened for the player to switch from Mozambique to Malawi, so let us be patient and wait for Fifa,” Jangale said.
Fam was also able to secure a clearance for Blue Eagles midfielder Micium Mhone through outside the window.
