By Mabvuto Kambuwe:
eSwatini football league governing body has docked Malanti Chiefs six points for featuring former Silver Strikers player Binwell Katinji without a work permit.
The player has also been punished by having the three goals he scored in the opening two games of the country’s season nullified.
In an interview from eSwatini, formerly Swaziland, Katinji confirmed the development.
“It is true but I am not disturbed. I will continue giving out my best. My target is to win the Golden Boot Award,” Kantinji said.
Katinnji has five goals.
The striker continues to enjoy good form in eSwatini, having netted the only goal of the match as his side defeated Mamba 1-0 in a league match played over the weekend.
Efforts to speak to eSwatini league governing body proved futile Tuesday.
Football Association of Malawi Transfer Matching System Manager, Casper Jangale, confirmed that the association cleared Katinji.
Following the punishment, Chiefs have descended to position six with 15 points, eight points behind leaders Green Mamba.
The former Silver forward was one of the reliable strikers for Silver.
He netted a brace as Malawi national football team drew 2-2 against Guangzhou R&F of China during the opening of Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe last year.
