Former Flames and Silver Strikers goalkeeper, Charles Swini, will have to wait a bit longer to complete his move to Civil Service United as his name is missing in the transfer system.
Football Association of Malawi (Fam) Club Licencing and Compliance Manager, Casper Jangale, said Swini’s details cannot be traced in the system.
“I have been in the system on several occasions to clear him [Swini] but there is nothing. Civil Secretariat must complete some necessary information for the player and we will take it from there,” he said.
Civil General Secretary, Ronald Chiwaula, insisted that the club was working tirelessly to have Swini cleared.
“We also approached Fam on the same. Maybe it is them who have a problem but from our side we did everything,” Chiwaula said.
Swini said he was focusing on keeping fit in readiness of the new season.
“For me it is business as usual. My job is on the pitch and I am still waiting for my clearance. I want to show the nation that I am still on top of my game. I will show it on the pitch,” he said.
Swini is eager to play in the TNM Super league again following expiry of his contract with Mozambican giants UD Songo last year.
The player returned home to revive his career and has been training with Civil.
His potential team Civil has more to do in order to have the player cleared by Fam, according to Jangale.
Swini lost the Flames number one jersey to Nyasa Big Bullets goal minder, Ernest Kakhobwe, who eventually also lost the jersey to Silver Strikers’ goal-keeper, Brighton Munthali.
