Mbuyu demands Rwf.40m for Yanga
AMAVUBI DEFENDER Mbuyu Twite has requested former Tanzania league champions Yanga FC to part Rwf. 40 million (Approx. 80m Tshs) in bid to sign a new contract which will keep him at Jangwani-based club.
Mbuyu who joined Young Africans two seasons ago from APR will see out his contract on May 20 this year.
Tanzania media reports have confirmed that Mbuyu is demanding over Rwf. 40 million (Approx. 80m Tshs) from the club management but the fee is being criticized by the club ‘leaders including the head coach.
The current coach Hans Pluijm is against the idea of giving players recruitment fee at once. He belives African players lack commitment after getting all their money from the signed deal, and has proposed to the club management not to give all the money to players who sign new contracts because the remarks he made were that it affects their performances.
Hans said that players must be given a part of their wage at the beginning, and the rest must come in the middle of the signed contract.
However, Yanga’s reluctant to clear the issue will be a huge benefit to champions Azam Fc who are ready to cash-in for Mbuyu, regarded as the best defender in the region.
Azam has already signed key players such as Burundian Didier Kavumbagu and Frank Domayo from rivals Yanga as part of beefing the club ahead of next year’s Africa Champions League.
