Blue Eagles has hit out at Mighty Mukuru Wanderers over sentiments made by a Nomads official (Name withheld) who claimed that a team sponsored by a non-profit making entity, (Malawi Police) Blue Eagles FC should be selling players at a low price.
This is the latest episode to the ongoing verbal war between Wanderers and Eagles over the impending transfer of Eagles talisman Gaddie Chirwa who has already handed in a transfer request at area 30 as he is on the verge of joining the Lali Lubani outfit.
It has been reported in the local media that Chirwa has agreed personal terms with Wanderers but the transfer is delaying as Wanderers are reluctant to meet Eagles’ asking price of K9millon.
Writing on their official Facebook page, Blue Eagles replied angrily saying Wanderers should stop playing monkey tactics when buying players.
Reads part of the Statement: “Truth be told, this is a JOKE OF THE CENTURY as it takes lots of resources for us to scout a player, to take them on board and to develop them to the highest standard possible. The investment therein cannot be disputed.
“If a particular team does not have enough resources in terms of money, it should not bother itself ‘attempting’ to buy a player from another team”
“Teams with money in their coffers don’t play monkey tactics when it comes to roping in a player from another Club”.
According to Eagles Chirwa has a year remaining on his contract.
This is the second time for Blue Eagles and Mighty Mukuru Wanderers to fight over a player as the same also happened two seasons ago when Vitumbiko Kumwenda forced a move to Lali Lubani.
