Big Bullets mum on Banda’s value
TNM Super League champions Nyasa Big Bullets have kept a tight lid on attacking midfielder Peter Banda’s transfer fee.
The youngster is undergoing month-long trials at FC Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldovan, Europe.
Bullets Chief Administration Officer Albert Chigoga could not provide Banda’s price tag fearing it might jeopardise potential transfer.
“It is too early to start talking about transfer fee,” he said.
Banda featured in a training match on Tuesday as Sheriff defeated FC Floresti 6-1.
“I am working hard to clinch a deal here. Having my former teammate [Charles Petro] is also a blessing as he is helping me to settle quickly,” said the former Griffin Young Stars player.
Apparently, Bullets did not disclose the transfer fee when Petro left the People’s Team for Sheriff in January last year.
Football analyst George Chiusiwa said the club’s failure to disclose the value of their players was an indication of lack of transparency and accountability.
However, Chiusiwa also said ,being a private entity, Bullets have freedom not disclose the value of their players.
“They have that freedom of not disclosing the price tag of their players but, look, every professional club values their players. Bullets, as a private limited company, could have led by an example by openly revealing the market value of its players,” he said.
Meanwhile, Bullets left-back Precious Sambani left the country on Tuesday for South Africa where he is expected to undergo two-week trials with DStv Premiership side Golden Arrows.
