SOME senior players for Masters Security FC have disclosed that they are owed game bonuses for the second round of the 2016 Chipiku Premier Division.
The team regroups today in preparation for life in the TNM Super League after finishing as champions of the division.
“We were promised that the game bonuses will be paid in time but we are still waiting. At the moment, we do not know when the team will pay us,” said one of the players who opted for anonymity.
Sources indicate that players have not been paid bonuses of K10,000 each for 18 games.
Each player is being owed K100,000 on average. However, Masters General Secretary, Zacharia Nyirenda, said he was not aware of the issue and promised to consult former officials of the team.
In previous interviews, the team’s owner, Alfred Gangata, disclosed that he would invest over K150 million in the team, adding that he had bought the club a bus.
Masters were linked with former Karonga United defender Hygiene Mwandepeka but the player eventually joined Silver Strikers.
Masters are also reportedly interested in Be Forward Wanderers’ veteran midfielder Joseph Kamwendo, who resigned from the club two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, Masters will embark on a talent identification exercise today at Lilongwe Community Ground. Head Coach, Benjamin Kumwenda, confirmed the exercise, saying he wants to build a strong side.
