Cletus Chama’s contract at Egyptian side terminated
Former Zesco United midfielder Cletus Chama has terminated his contract with Egyptian side Al Ittihad Alexandria following contractual disputes.
Chama moved to Ittihad in a deal worth US$50,000 and so far US$25,000 has been paid to the player’s agent based in Canada.
He signed a three and half year contract last November.
“It is basically saying that Chama terminated his contract from his side although the club paid all his salary according to the agreed contract,” a message translated from Arabic on the club’s website read.
Chama had surrendered his travel document to club officials but encountered problems to have his passport back when disagreements in his contract started to emerge.
Chama, whose contract at the Alexandria-based side came into effect on February 1 this year when he became a free agent after the expiry of his deal at Zesco, was helped to retrieve his passport by Zambian embassy staff in Cairo.
With the passport in possession of Ittihad officials, Chama could not fly from his base to Cairo and had to travel by road to meet embassy officials, a source familiar with the happenings said.
Chama was not even listed in the Ittihad squad for yesterday’s Egypt Cup round of 16 home match against Enppi
