Three keep Big Bullets waiting


Tension is rising at Nyasa Big Bullets after some players turned down new contract offers asking the team to consider revising their signing-on fee and some of the terms before they put pen to paper.

Bullets held a meeting with the players on Monday, when they discussed the issue of renewing contracts for some players.

In an interview Tuesday, Bullets Chief Executive Officer Suzgo Nyirenda said the majority of the players renewed their contracts except goalkeeper Ernest Kakhobwe, defender Miracle Gabeya and midfielder Precious Phiri.


According to Nyirenda, the three players indicated that they were waiting for their managers to sign the contracts.

“We had lengthy discussions with the players and all the players signed except three players. The three players told us they need ample time to go through the contracts together with their respective managers,” said the former Cosafa Deputy Chief Executive Officer.

However, Nyirenda said the three players have been given until Friday to sign the deals.


The trio did not answer our calls for comment.

All the three players struggled for game time at Bullets last season. Kakhobwe rarely featured for the club despite being a regular at Malawi National Football Team.

However, his place at Flames is also under threat following impressive performances of youngster Charles Thom, who replaced Kakhobwe in two games at the Africa Cup of Nations finals.

Details indicate that Bullets trained in the afternoon as management was finalising the process of contracts for some players.

Former Flames midfielder Sherry Msuku said players deserve motivation to perform.

“Only happy faces can deliver; so, clubs should try their best to give the players what they deserve. Football is a short-term career,” Msuku said.

At first, Bullets released senior players such as Sankhani Mkandawire, Chiukepo Msowoya, Nelson Kangunje, Bright Munthali, Dalitso Sailesi, Pilirani Zonda and Zicco Mkanda.

However, last week the club also released three more players from the senior team namely Paul Kasungwi, Luke Chima and Ben Manyozo, who has since joined Blue Eagles.
