NYIRENDA—I do not want to disclose the contents

Ghanaian defender Eric Atsigah has taken to task Mighty Be Forward Wanderers for breach of contract.

The former player for defunct Masters Security wants to terminate his contract after accusing Wanderers of failure to honour contractual obligations and process his work permit to enable him to play games.

Atsigah has reported Wanderers to Football Players Association (FPA) to intervene.

The Ghanaian could neither confirm nor deny the development but FPA General Secretary Ernest Mangani said they were following up on the matter.

“Atsigah complained that Nomads had breached his contract terms. In the letter, Atsigah is saying that Wanderers are not paying him monthly and that the club is failing to secure him a work permit for him to work [play]. As an association we are following it up since the player is our member,” he said.

Atsigah’s manager, Zachariah Nyirenda, who is also Super League of Malawi Vice General Secretary, said he could not divulge information as it was not for public consumption,

“Atsigah is working at Wanderers and it is true that he has written them a letter but it is between us and the team [Wanderers]. I do not want to disclose the contents of the letter until the matter is resolved,” he said.

The West African player is in his second year at the Lali Lubani Road outfit, having joined in August 2019.

He was part of the Master’s squad that won the disbanded Carlsberg Cup and finished fourth in the TNM Super League in 2018.

Recently, Wanderers also signed Nigerian defender Yunus Sheriff and Ghanaian striker Michael Tetteh as free agents after they parted ways with Silver Strikers last year.

Meanwhile, some Wanderers players confided in The Daily Times that the club was yet to honour contractual requirements for a lot of players.

“Of course, efforts were made to start paying some of us our signing on fees but they are yet to finish. If opportunities arise, most of us will follow the path which Atsigah has taken,” he said.

Wanderers Chairperson Simon Sikwese said he was in a meeting and promised to get back to us.
