Masters Security FC’s Head Coach, Abasi Makawa, has pleaded with the team’s management to maintain the squad ahead of the 2018 TNM Super League.

Makawa told journalists, after a goal-less draw against Atletico Petroleos de Luanda in the second-leg of Caf Confederation Cup at Bingu National Stadium on Tuesday, that he was impressed with his charges’ fighting spirit.

“It would be good if we maintain the squad because we are building a team which can be a force to reckon with in the TNM Super League next season. There is great understanding among the players on the pitch. I will be happy if I continue working with this group of players,” Makawa said.

Masters bolstered their squad with Rafik Mussa, Kondwani Lufeyo (from Be Forward Wanderers), Chimwemwe Kunkwawa, Zeliat Nkhoma (Mzuni FC) and Suwedi Limbani (Moyale Barracks FC).

There are fears that some players for Masters could leave the club due to financial problems, having gone three months without pay.

The players boycotted training before their match against Petroleos on Tuesday due to unpaid bonuses. Masters bowed out 5-0 on aggregate.

Masters General Secretary, Zacharia Nyirenda, confirmed that they owe the players but assured that the club would settle the dues.

“Just like most of the clubs, we owe the players money but we have tried our best to pay them something. Hopefully, we will sort out everything soon,” Nyirenda said.

Masters defied all odds to take part in the Confederation Cup after just a season in the Super League.
