CURRENT player transfer squabbles in local soccer have been attributed to the fact that teams do not read clearly the player transfer rules.

Zifa board member Benedict Moyo said teams were not serious in checking what the loval game’s rules book said on player transfers.

Moyo said it was important for teams to revisit the rules and come up with guided solutions that will not affect the game and the players.

He said all decisions must be done in the interest of football. “I believe the issue of player transfers can be resolved amicably.

If we go about fighting for players, it will not assist in the development of the sport,” he said.

Moyo’s comments come in the wake of a fight for Kudakwashe Mahachi between Chicken Inn and Highlanders.

The Gamecox are claiming a development fee for the 21 year old Mamelodi Sundowns man.

Currently Mahachi is bound to Bosso on a loan from the Downs, but Chicken Inn say they will stop at nothing to prevent the move if their city neighbours dont advance a fee.

An official from one of the clubs said they had tried to dialogue but to no avail so far.
