Mighty Wanderers clarify Asu salary situation


Mighty be Forward Wanderers managemnet has said their Cameroonian striker, Lionel Asu, would start getting his salary after the club completes paying him his signing-on fees,

The Nomads genera l secretary, Mike Butao, said this amidst complaints by Asu that he was struggling to survive because he was not getting his salary.

“We signed Asu as a free agent. We agreed that he would not start getting his salary until we complete paying him his signing-on fees. We thought that we had to concentrate on paying him his signing-on fees and then start paying him his salary starting from June. He agreed with the arrangement,” he said.


“We paid him part of the signing-on fees. It was a decent amount of money and we were hopeful that he would use that money for upkeep while we mobilise more money to complete paying his fees and then start paying his salary.”

Asu complained during the week that he was kicked out of his lodge in Mpingwe after the club failed to settle the bills.

Butao said that situation was regrettable but it would not happen again once the club settles his dues.


“Once everything is sorted out and he starts getting his salary, he would be able to find accommodation on his own and fend for himself just like any professional player. It is very expensive for the club to be responsible for paying his bills. We are working towards making sure that his stay is comfortable and he continues performing well on the pitch,” he said.

Asu confirmed the agreement with Wanderers that he would start getting his salary after payment of the affiliation fees.

The Nomads general secretary said the club had struggled to complete paying the player’s signing-on fees because of postponement of their league games which were the main source of revenue.

Asu has won the hearts of Nomads supporters after scoring two goals in three matches.
