3 Ghanaians on Nyasa Big Bullets radar
TNM Super League champions Nyasa Big Bullets have disclosed that three Ghanaian players have been invited for trials.
Bullets have already beefed up their squad with former Silver Strikers defender Hadji Wali and Ntopwa FC midfielder Mphatso Magaleta.
In addition, they have promoted four players from the reserve side, namely Patrick Mwaungulu, Kesten Simbi, Yankho Singo and Thomson Magombo.
However, coach Kalisto Pasuwa is still hunting for new players to beef up the squad.
In an interview Tuesday, Bullets Chief Administrator Albert Chigoga confirmed inviting three players but kept a tight lid on their identity.
“It is true that the players are coming for trials but other details will be shared once they arrive,” Chigoga said.
Bullets already have Nigerian striker Babatunde Adepoju, whom they signed from Mighty Wanderers towards the end of last season.
In post-match interview after beating Civil Service United 2-0 on Sunday, the Zimbabwean, who is looking for his fourth straight league title, confirmed that some players were expected to come for assessment.
“We expect them to be in Malawi once they get Visas,” Pasuwa told journalists at Bingu National Stadium on Sunday.
Bullets will start their title defence against rivals Wanderers at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.
Last month, Bullets released 11 players after the expiry of their respective contracts. They included strikers Chiukepo Msowoya, Zicco Mkanda, Bright Munthali, Luke Chima midfielders Chimango Kayira, Nelson Kangunje, Dalitso Sailesi, Ben Manyozo, defenders Sankhani Mkandawire and Pilirani Zonda.
Goalkeeper Ernest Kakhobwe and defender Miracle Gabeya joined Civil and Wanderers, respectively.
Sports analyst Peterkins Kayira said Bullets should not panic.
“They have a good squad capable of defending the Super League title. Bullets just need to be focused,” Kayira said.
Bullets are also expected to take part in the 2022 Caf Champions League after exiting the tournament in the preliminary round following 3-2 loss on aggregate to DStv Premiership side Amazulu.
