Fifa, TFF slap Tabora United with transfer ban

DAR ES SALAAM: HARDLY a day after Young Africans were barred from participating in the transfer window, another Premier League side, Tabora United FC has also been slapped with the same embargo by the world football governing body (FIFA).

The Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF), unveiled on Wednesday in Dar es Salaam that Tabora United have been given transfer ban by Fifa until they settle the dues owed to them by their former player, Daniel Chitambai Chal from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The decision came following Chal’s successful claim against the club for outstanding salaries and demand for compensation for contract termination and failure of the Tabora regionbased side to settle the dispute.

The Bees were instructed to settle the payment within 45 days of the ruling, yet failed to comply with the directive. Consequently, Fifa imposed a ban on international players transfer for the team, while TFF has prohibited the club from engaging in domestic player transfers.

TFF emphasized on the importance of clubs to honor contracts entered into with players and coaches so as to avoid various penalties, including registration bans.

This development serves as a stark reminder to football clubs, of the repercussions of failing to meet contractual obligations, as Tabora United find themselves sidelined from the transfer market. Yanga are also barred from registering players until they settle their dues to former Zambian international player, Lazarus Kambole, who is currently on loan spell at ZESCO United of Zambia.

Currently, The Bees find themselves entrenched in the relegation zone, occupying the 15th position in the NBC Premier League standings. Despite their efforts, they have amassed just 23 points from the 24 matches this season.

As the season progresses, The Bees will need to summon all their determination and resilience to navigate through the challenges ahead and emerge victorious in their quest to retain their position among the elite clubs of the NBC Premier League.
