Mighty Be Forward Wanderers players can now wear smiles on their faces following an assuarance from their Executive Committee that they will soon be getting their monthly salaries and allowances in good time.
Wanderers Vice General Secretary Gift Mkandawire made the assuarance on Tuesday.
Mkandawire said the development follows lengthy and fruitful meeting they had with the visiting team of their sponsors from Be Forward Company whose Headquarters are in Japan.
During the visit, the sponsors also had time to watch the teams’ trainning session last week where they interacted with players also to hear their grievances.
They were also present at the Kamuzu Stadium when Wanderers demolished Zolozolo FC 8-0 in the Foundation for Irrigation and Sustainable Development (FISD) at the Kamuzu Stadium last Sunday.
“They have assured us that they will from now be sending the money in good time. Since we are already in November, we expect December to come with an impact on what we have discussed,” said Mkandawire.
He said this is a motivation factor to the players which he said and will assist in improving the perfomance of players on the pitch.
The Nomads have been sailing in troubled waters both on and off the pitch with the money issue being the the centre of controversy.
Players have been crying out loud for not receiving their dues in time.
This forced them to stage a trainning boycott some weeks ago.
This resulted into a cal from supporters demanding the resignation of the entire Executive Committee up to the extent of closing Be Forward Company offices.
Meanwhile, the team is geared to win its next league assignments as well as the FISD Challenge Cup according to Team Manager Steven Madeira.
Madeira said last weekend that they are looking forward to win another silverware this year after they successfully grabed the Carlsberg Cup at the expense of their rivals Nyasa Big Bullets.
“I have all the hope that we can reach the finals and win the trophy [FISD],” Said Madeira after an 8-0 thumping over Zolozolo FC in the Fisd Cup quarterfinal assignment on played on Sunday at the Kamuzu Stadium.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
