With one month before the end of John ‘CJ’ Banda and Schumacher Kuwali’s loan deals with Mozambican giants, Ferroviaro de Nampula, parent club, Blue Eagles, have complained that they are yet to receive a transfer balance for the duo.
The Daily Times has established that Banda and Kuwali joined the Mocambola League side on a combined loan fee of US$ 10,000 (about K7.8 million), but the Nampula only paid half.
According to Eagles, Nampula were supposed to pay the balance before the end of the loan period next month.
Eagles’ General Manager, Gabriel Chirwa, confirmed yesterday that their efforts to get payment for the two players had proved futile.
“We have been reminding them but there is no response from the club. Even the club’s local representative, Nelito James Pondamale, is also not answering our calls and e-mails. We are really disappointed with the conduct of the some local agents and we will not trust them in future deals,” Chirwa explained.
“Recently, CJ took an initiative on his own to remind the club but we are still waiting for a response.”
The duo joined Nampula on a 10-month loan deal, according Chirwa.
He vowed never to involve agents again when selling players to foreign clubs.
Pondamale was not available for a comment.
Eagles are also owed from the transfer of Micium Mhone to Jomo Cosmos. Mhone signed for Cosmos on a two-year deal last season, but the South African club has not paid R150, 000 (about K7.5million) transfer balance.
Eagles have since indicated that they might recall the talented winger, 10 months before the end of his contract.
