Triumphant Nyasa Big Bullets’ players will share 60 percent of the K10 million prize money for winning the 2017 Carlsberg Cup after beating Be Forward Wanderers 5-3 on post-match penalties at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.

Bullets interim Treasurer, Chifundo Makande, Monday confirmed that the players’ share has been increased from 40 percent to 60 percent to motivate them.

“According to their contracts, the players are entitled to 40 percent [from a cup win] but we have told the players that they will get an increment. It is our desire to ensure that the players get what they deserve for their sweat,” Makande said.

He said Bullets players were promised K200, 000 each as a game-bonus before the final of which K100, 000 was paid after the game. The remainder was expected to be paid by last evening.

Veteran forward, Chiukepo Msowoya, who scored one of the penalty kicks during the final, confirmed the promise.

“Indeed, they always promise us as a motivation and we are happy because they honour their pledges. As players, we will keep on fighting for the team so that we do well this season,” Msowoya said.

For being runner-up, Wanderers will receive K5 million in prize money of which the players will get 60 percent, according to Vice Treasurer, Chulu Mkangama.

Bullets, under Elia Kananji, have clinched the Carlsberg Cup on two occasions.

First it was in 2014 before he was unceremoniously fired to join Wanderers as he won it in 2015 and 2016. He is the only coach to win the Carlsberg Cup for three consecutive years with two different clubs in the country.
