FAILED TO LIVE TO EXPECTATIONS—Badu

Nyasa Big Bullets have finally released Ghanaian defender Isaac Badu due to poor performance while extending contracts for Ernest Petro, McFallen Mgwira and Righteous Banda.

A press release published on the club’s website stated that defender Haji Wali has been transfer-listed while also confirming the departure of midfielders Misheck Seleman and Chimwemwe Idana.

“We are pleased to announce that midfielders Ernest Petro, McFallen Mgwira and Righteous Banda have agreed to extend their contracts. Petro has signed a new three-year deal that will keep him at the club until 2026 while Mgwira remains at the club until 2024 after agreeing to a one-year contract extension. Banda is tied to Bullets for another two years with his new deal ending in 2025.

“Bullets can also confirm that Isaac Badu has left the club after his two-year contract was terminated by mutual agreement,” the statement reads.

Badu, 30, formerly of Hearts of Oak, had passed trials at Bullets while his compatriot midfielder Bright Agogo failed to impress the Kalisto Pasuwa-led technical panel.

The Ghanaian centre-back, who last played for Zimbabwean side Bulawayo Chiefs, joined The People’s Team at the start of the 2022 season and played just two competitive games.

The release also stated that Wali had been advised to look for another club.

“The defender has been advised to look for a club of his choice on the agreement that Bullets and the new club will discuss the player’s transfer. Wali joined Bullets in February 2022,” it reads.

Additionally, Bullets intend to release midfielder Mphatso Magaleta on loan during the 2023/24 football season while defender White Kitsen is expected to re-join the squad following the completion of his one-year loan spell at relegated Sable Farming.

However, the statement did not indicate issues regarding striker Hassan Kajoke, who purportedly signed a pre-contract with Silver Strikers.

Former Malawi National Football Team goalkeeper Patrick Chimlambe said it is important for Bullets and other teams to complete the process of releasing players in time to give them a chance to look for new clubs.

“This is the way to go. I hope this is their final statement regarding possible departures. Any other players earmarked for departure should be released quickly so that they can find new clubs,” Chimlambe said.
