Charles Petro’s Romanian deal under threat


Fifa-sanctioned player intermediary Amadou Fontem Tigana has threatened to ruin Charles Petro’s potential deal to Romanian club Botosani FC from Moldova champions Tiraspol Sheriff.

Petro’s contract with Sheriff will expire on December 31, allowing him to move to another club as a fr ee agent in January.

However, Fontem Tigana alleged that he facilitated the deal before the Flames defender dumped him for another player intermediary.


The Cameroonian is demanding K15 million, which is 10 percent of the transfer cut.

“I am already in touch with authorities at Botosani. I secured the deal in June this year after Fam [Football Association of Malawi] president Walter Nyamilandu approached me to help the player as his contract was ending in December. Charles could not move earlier that time because he was still contracted to Sheriff.

“I have already warned his [Petro’s] brother, who stays in South Africa, about the danger of dumping me for another agent and they are all aware of the issue,” he said.


Petro’s brother, Phillip, confirmed that discussions with Fontem Tigana took place but he dismissed the matter as baseless.

“We never signed any contract with Amadou. My brother has, for the past three years, been under the agency which has facilitated the deal to Romania,” he said.

Petro featured for Sheriff in five matches only this season.

While playing for Sheriff, he played three matches and two matches in the Uefa Champions League and Europa League, respectively.
