FKFPL side AFC Leopards has insisted that Duncan Otieno was registered as their player. According to the club’s National Executive Committee, due process was followed in acquiring the services of Otieno and the only thing they lacked was an International Transfer Certificate from Nkana FC and the Zambian FA.
“On Duncan Otieno, we’d like to reiterate that the player had registered with us though both his previous Club and also the Football Association of Zambia were yet to furnish us with his International Transfer Certificate and the TPO respectively” read an official statement by the club.
“However, we’d like to confirm that we are in communication with the Football Association of Zambia as well as Lusaka Dynamos and we aim to have this issue settled amicably in a fortnight”.
Otieno has for the past few weeks been at the center of a transfer row pitting AFC Leopards and Zambian side Lusaka Dynamos with Ingwe claiming that a deal for Otieno’s return to Zambia was done behind their back.
Otieno has however insisted that Dynamos bought out his contract from Leopards.
With the latest developments, it so looks like Ingwe has given up on the hopes of having the player return to the Den and would be looking to get some transfer fee even after threatening to report Dynamos to FIFA.
In other news, the club has confirmed the appointment of Anthony Kimani as the new interim coach following the resignation of Thomas Trucha.
Kimani will be assisted by club legend Tom ‘Gazza’ Juma.
