Micium Mhone, Blue Eagles in contract wrangle
Irate Blue Eagles captain Micium Mhone has lashed at his officials for blocking his move to join Mozambican side Costa do Sol.
Differences have emerged as Mhone claims that he is a free agent following the expiry of his contract on December 30 last year whereas Eagles Chairperson, Alexander Ngwala, contradicts the players’ contract status.
The former Jomo Cosmos midfielder, said Costa offered him an outright two year deal but his side is refusing to let him go.
“Am also told Costa do Sol wrote Blue Eagles to release me but it was turned down. Eagles don’t want to release me as a free agent. Blue Eagles are my club and I am begging my bosses to consider my wish to play outside the country. I will still remain a Blue Eagles player and I love the club,” Mhone said.
Ngwala said the Flames player was given two options before sealing his move.
Eagles want the player to sign a new deal to show that he was still contracted to the club because he will remain a Malawi Police Service employee.
“All what I wanted is to have a proper documentation on the issue as you are aware that apart from football he works for Malawi Police Service. We have no problem with him going to Mozambique. He must go in person to the Inspector General [Duncan Mwapasa] to seek consent” said Ngwala.
Mhone signed a three year deal with the Policemen in 2017 after returning from Cosmos.
He inspired Eagles to Fisd Challenge Cup glory when they defeated Kamuzu Barracks 4-2 on post-match penalties after the game ended one-all in regulation time at Civo Stadium in December last year.
