Leopards in hot water over Banda?
Black Leopards may become the subject of a complaint by the FA of Malawi (FAM) after reportedly terminating the contract of Dave Banda.
Leopards have already said that they will not register the Malawi international for the new PSL season as they have already reached their quota of five foreign players.
But now the club stands accused of terminating the player’s contract with two years still to run, but offering him just a month’s salary as compensation.
"Black Leopards have terminated the player's contract so they are supposed to pay him for the rest of the period in his contract," Malawi FA CEO Suzgo Nyirenda told The Times.
"But he told me this morning that the club had said they would only pay him a month salary which is a breach of the contract. I tried to find out if that was in the contract but he said it's not."
Banda’s manager Kondie Msungama appeared to confirm the news.
"When I first heard about Dave's predicament I contacted FAM for guidance on the matter. We will not rest until justice is done. I think these South African clubs are taking us for granted," Msungama said.
"They think they can pick a player, sign him and later dump him just like that. Dave has a running contract and if the club has terminated it, they have to pay-off the remaining period, it's a straight forward issue."
