Mangere seeks further clarification on Sami's release

By Sunil Sharma

Mangere United football club of New Zealand will seek clarification from higher authorities before obtaining the release of Lautoka defender Krishna Sami.

Lautoka FA has placed a price tag of $27,500  on the former Fiji U20 rep who is currently in New Zealand.

Mangere secretary Gyanendra Kumar says they will look at all avenues to obtain the International Transfer Certificate of the defender.

“It is a total abuse of the amateur code and will be seeking clarifications of every necessary documentation before final deal will be sealed”  Kumar told FijiLive.

"The club have requested LFA to send full details of Sami’s contract and after citing the contract then further proceedings will take place." 

“I have advised Lautoka President, Shalendra Prasad  to forward his ( Krishna’s) contract  details which is also registered with Fiji FA, so that we can go through that with the player and if  he shows some real commitment then we may go ahead in securing his services."

"Perhaps, the breakdown of what he owes to Blues Fan Club and on top of that what will be Lautoka’s release fee also needs to be provided”

In response to their query, LFA have advised the Mangere club that the said player signed a contract with Lautoka Football Association and the Blues Fan Club in 2010 for two years.

According to Sami’s contract, LFA and the Blues Fan Club paid Suva FA $13,150.00 to obtain his release from Suva to Lautoka.

LFA also paid $3000.00 for his loan from Samabula Soccer Club and Suva. Upon payment of above amount, Lautoka FA and Blues Fan Club paid him $1000.00 cash as an advance upon sighing of his contract with Lautoka soccer.

Later he with other players boycotted training before Battle of the Giants tournament and he was suspended from all level of soccer.

Further more he with others appeared before Disciplinary Committee and all admitted breaching their contract, therefore they all were fined $10,000.00 each as per their signed contract and their contract were terminated.

Krishna currently represents New Zealand Ba FC in all the New Zealand Fiji AFC organised tournaments and can also play throughout the Winter season in the Christian League which does not require any clearances from Lautoka Football or Fiji FA.

"If Krishna’s clearance negotiation does not take its course smoothly then the door for future will be closed for Lautoka FC should they ever decide to use him in their tournaments", added  Kumar.
