The transfer saga between Silver Strikers and Premier Bet Wizards over attacker, Thuso Paipi, is refusing to die as the later wants to recall the talented winger in the middle of the season.
Wizards have written Super League of Malawi (Sulom), expressing displeasure with the Central Bankers for failing to honour the loan agreement for Paipi.
“[The] Executive Committee of Wizards, led by Chairperson, Ophman Kondowe, had a meeting where we looked at a number of things. We also discussed Thuso’s loan deal and we resorted to recall him,” reads part of the letter signed by Wizards’ owner, Peter Mponda.
“We believe that in the position we are in, we need all our best players. With immediate effect from September 23, 2016, Paipi will not play for Silver.”
Wizards are demanding K3.5 million from Silver for the talented winger Silver Acting-General Secretary, Thabo Nyirenda, confirmed that Wizards had written Sulom to deregister the exciting forward.
However, Nyirenda, said the initial agreement between Wizards and Silver was that Thuso will play for the club for a season on loan.
“We are really disappointed with Wizards because they are being impatient. The loan deal is still running and we cannot let him go,”Nyirenda said.
Recently, Silver indicated that they offered Paipi a three-year deal and claimed that the player was on the verge of signing the contract.
But Nyirenda said the club was interested in making the deal permanent at the end of the season.
Paipi has been one of the revelations in the TNM Super League this season having scored vital goals for the club.
His impressive performance also earned him a Flames’ call-up recently.
Paipi yesterday refused to comment on the issue, but he was part of Silver’s squad that beat Mzuni FC 2-1 at Silver Stadium on Saturday.
