Zimbabwe’s Caps United have insisted that Be Forward Wanderers on-loan striker, Ishmael Thindwa must return to Zimbabwe to sort out his contractual dispute at the end of his loan spell with the Lali Lubani outfit.
The former Epac FC gangling forward wants to terminate his contract with Caps, which expires next year in December. His loan deal with Nomads expires on December 31 this year.
However, Caps on Saturday said the differences could only be resolved through face-to – face dialogue.
According to Thindwa’s manager, Roy Mdechi, Caps through chief executive officer, Joe Makuvire on Thursday, indicated that they want to recall the forward at the end of his loan spell at Wanderers before the start of any negotiations.
“Caps have clearly stated that they want face-to-face discussions with Thindwa at the end of his loan. They have also indicated that Wanderers should also write them at the end of the league campaign if they want to extend the loan period,” Mdechi explained.
“I am yet to brief Thindwa on the matter but if all goes well, we might travel to Zimbabwe next January.”
Thindwa recently told local newspapers that he doesn’t fancy a move back to Caps.
The 2011 and 2013 TNM Super League Golden Boot Award winner, recently wrote Football Association of Malawi (Fam) asking the local association to negotiate with Zimbabwe’s FA to terminate his contract.
