Former Bay United and Zambia national team striker Given Singuluma risks being banned by Fifa for allegedly signing contracts with three clubs.
According to The Times of Zambia, Singuluma, who has a contract to KCM-FAZ Premier Division side Zanaco, has allegedly signed contracts with Finnish club FC Haka and TP Mazembe of the DR Congo. FAZ General Secretary George Kasengele confirms receiving a copy of the contract Singuluma signed with the Finnish side FC Haka, and that the association has also been informed that the player has signed another contract with TP Mazembe. Apart from apparently signing contracts with three clubs, Singuluma last month snuck out of the country to attend trials in Israel. “We are getting extremely worried with the position regarding Singuluma,” Kasengele says.”We received an International Transfer Request from the Finnish Football Association. Upon receipt of the request, we immediately wrote to Zanaco to get their position on the matter. Zanaco informed us that the player was contracted and that any club that wanted him should go through them. “While we were corresponding with Zanaco, Singuluma forced his way to Israel for trials, leaving the two contracts behind. What is very disappointing is that we have received information that he had signed another contract with TP Mazembe while he was with the national team in Ivory Coast during the African Nations Championship (Chan) competition,” he said. Singuluma shot to fame this year after winning the Golden Boot at the Chan tournament with five goals.
