Nyasa Big Four Bonanza inaugural winners, Ferroviario de Nampula from Mozambique, spotted some players from hosts Nyasa Big Bullets during the three-day event which wound up on Monday.

However, Nampula Sporting Director, Mateus Tchakatchaka Manjate, said, while they want to sign some Bullets players, it might be difficult to lure them.


“I don’t want to mention names here because the players might become big-headed. Otherwise, we will contact the right people. We also know that it will be difficult to sign Bullets players because we can’t afford to pay what they are paying them,” he said.

Although Manjate was elusive on the players they were targeting, sources indicate that midfielder Henry Kabichi, defenders Sankhani Mkandawire and John Lanjesi were among Nampula’s targets.

Kabichi scored two goals for Bullets in three games whereas Lanjesi and Mkandawire stabilised the defence.


Bullets Senior Business Manager, Kelvin Moyo, Tuesday said Nampula have hinted that they are interested in some of the People’s Team’s players but there is no official communication.

Meanwhile, Moyo has said the bonanza was fruitful.

“This is just the start of it. We have a five-year plan and we feel that the corporate world will embrace the bonanza in the coming years,” he said.

The bonanza also attracted Be Forward Wanderers and Chicken Inn from Zimbabwe.

Wanderers, despite tying on five points with Nampula, finished on second position as they scored three goals compared to their counterparts’ four.

Bullets ended on third position with four points whereas Chicken Inn anchored the table with a point.

Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, Tuesday said none of the visiting teams have, so far, showed interest in the Nomads players.
