Nyasa Big Bullets senior players, Fischer Kondowe and George Nyirenda, face disciplinary action for allegedly breaching one of the terms in their respective contracts.
According to a Bullets Executive Committee member, the players were prohibited from commenting in the press without being authorised.
“Only the captain and his deputies are entitled to make statements in the press. After games, we will also give them freedom to comment about their individual performances, especially when they win man-of-the match awards.
“However, the two courted controversy when they made remarks in the press. Nyirenda issued his apology to the media while Fischer expressed his grievances with the newspapers as well. This is not a normal channel and we will take them to task,” said the source.
According to the official, Nyirenda faces three charges relating to his behaviour after he remonstrated against his substitution against MDF Marine last week.
“He also absconded from training on Thursday and Friday. So, he will have to defend himself,” he said.
Bullets Technical Director, Billy Tewesa, confirmed that both players reported for training on Tuesday, but they would wait for the executive committee’s consent to feature them again.
“George came to us and apologised. As a technical panel, we have forwarded the message to the executive committee to guide us,” he said.
Bullets Vice-General Secretary, Kelvin Moyo, confirmed that the pair would face disciplinary action.
However, he was non-committal to comment further. Both players declined to comment.
