Big Bullets chairperson, Sam Chilunga, has warned the club’s followers against interference ahead of the official unveiling of their new sponsor, Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC).
Chilunga said it was common in Malawi that some quarters tend to reap from where they did not sow.
“We must not forget where we are coming from. Of course, we have clinched a massive deal with Nyasa Manufacturing Company, but we need to safeguard it by behaving ourselves. We should not entertain people that are only interested in money disregarding players’ welfare,” he said.
Chilunga said he was confident that his administration would turn around things at Bullets because most supporters and officials were beginning to recognise their role.
“Basically, we need to put in place good mechanisms to ensure that Bullets players are paid well. If we consider what they get, I would say it is peanuts. So, we have received support from the fans and they realise the need to pay players handsomely,” he said.
Bullets and NMC are set to begin a five-year deal worth K500 million this year.
NMC executive director, Dimitri Kalaitzis, said they had engaged Bullets executive committee to consider playing more international games.
