He was announced among the 10 players captured by Ingwe in January, his deal being for two years and Sofapaka have come out guns blazing to inform the public that Mao is still their player.

According to a letter signed by the club’s Secretary General Emmanuel Kayoyi and obtained by Goal, Mao signed a five-year deal with Sofapaka in November 2016 and AFC Leopards have not approached the club on the services of the player.
They have therefore ordered the player to report to their Eastleigh training ground with immediacy warning him of the consequences of double signing.
