Players for newly-crowned Carlsberg Cup champions, Masters Security, will share 75 per cent of the K12 million prize money.
The team’s patron and owner, Alfred Gangata, said players, as the main stakeholders, should be rewarded handsomely for their exploits following their 5-4 post-match penalty victory over Be Forward Wanderers at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.
“We need to honour the players for this historic success. Winning a cup after defeating Wanderers in the final and knocking out defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets in the semifinal is not a fluke. So the players need to be rewarded generously,” Gangata said.
He said the team would continue working hard to register more.
“This is our second season in the top flight league and winning a national trophy underlines our mission,” Gangata said. Masters Captain, Francis Mkanda, said Gangata’s generosity will inspire the players to aim at winning more trophies.Advertisement
“We are being motivated in different ways to achieve results. Our officials and the sponsor want the team to win more titles and we do not want to disappoint them,” Mkanda said.
Goalkeeper Bester Phiri, a former Nomad, was yet again the hero of the day after parrying Alfred Manyozo’s last spot kick to inspire Masters to their first ever national trophy.
Masters underlined their serious intent to win the final by flying from Lilongwe to Blantyre early last week.
The team also went to the lake in Salima as it prepared to meet Bullets in the semifinals.
