NPFL: Plateau Utd recall Mafeng Pam

The contract disagreement between Plateau United Football Club and agent of one of its young talented midfielders, Mafeng Pam, has finally been resolved with the Jos club recalling the wonder kid after they had asked him out last week.

It will be recalled that the Jos darling team dropped Mafeng last week following unresolved contractual issue which forced the management of the team to drop his services.

Mafeng was recalled following the intervention of major football stakeholders in Plateau State, notably the Director of Sports, Logan Dapar, and the Plateau State Football Association who urged both parties to sheath their sword in the interest of the state and the promising career of the youngster.

General Manager of Plateau United, Pius Henwan, confirmed to through the club Media Officer, Albert Dakup,  that the Mafeng contract conflict has been resolved in order not to jeopardise the fledging career of the player who holds the future of the team.

Henwan expressed delight with the efforts of major stakeholders in resolving the issue and noted that the development is a manifestation of the good working relationship existing among the football fraternity in the state.

The contractual issue has been lingering since January and that has been having a negative impact on the player who break into the main team this season after putting up scintillating performances during the club close camp in Abeokuta last year.

Mafeng who joined the club via its feeder team last year has since resumed training with the NPFL table toppers on Monday ahead of the Sunday contest with Kano Pillars and he is expected to be listed in the 18-man squad.
