A LOCAL football agent, Professor Tatenda Wadyajena, has called for the Footballers Union of Zimbabwe (FUZ) to intervene in challenges facing players who are being forced to roll-over their contracts by their clubs.

Wadyajena, who is in his final year studying Sports Science and Management at Bindura University, said the union must get involved in solving the problems faced by players.


He said some players are being forced to stay at their clubs against their will.


“As a manager I hope FUZ will step in to defend players rights because I feel they’re being infringed,” Wadyajena told H-Metro.


Wadyajena handled Talent Chamboko’s move from Manica Diamonds to Ngezi Platinum.


“I manage Talent Chamboko and Valentine Kadonzvo. Chicken Inn wanted compensation of $11 500 and training kits from Ngezi Platinum for them to sign Kadonzvo and Manica Diamonds wanted all the salaries they paid Chamboko in 2020 and his sign on fee for him to sign for Ngezi Platinum.

“I am now worried because my players were ready to face new challenges, it’s affecting them psychologically and their performance,” he said.


The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) encouraged players and clubs to have mutual agreements beneficial to parties after Covid-19 disrupted the soccer calendar in 2019.
