Surestream lost 3-1 to Bullets FC on Sunday in an entertaining match at Kamuzu Stadium which drew an impressive turn out.

But Surestream’s key players, two international players goalkeeper Bright Munthali and midfield Ernest Tambe, were not available for selection during the team’s loss to Bullets.

Sources said the players were dropped after having dissenting views with the Surestream administration over the signing on fee.

“The players are not happy with the signing on fee they were offered so they were dropped for the game,” said the source close to the team.

An official at Surestream confirmed the development saying there were issues with the players but he didn’t elaborate.

“They have not been picked for this game there are issues we need to sort out with them,” he said.

“We are not worried with their absence because we have other equally good players who could take up their position.”

In a related development seasoned defender Chikumbutso Kanyenda’s move to the team collapsed after not being happy with the signing on fee.

This comes in sharp contradiction to the team’s financial position pegged at around K400 million as the sponsor, UK based Chris Pittman disclosed that he injected US$1 million into the club.

The club has started on a poor note losing 4-2 to Blue Eagles in the opening match last week and also to Bullets by the same margin.
