Big Bullets Football Club Chairperson, Malinda Chinyama has blamed the team’s current poor form on players’ love for women and beer aside lacking commitment.
Bullets is failing to make a mark in all domestic competitions this season, a poor form that has disappointed many of its supporters.
The team was last weekend booted out of Standard Bank Cup and currently lies sixth in the TNM Super League with 28 points from 18 games.
In an interview with Star FM on Tuesday, Chinyama never minced words but blamed his players of being too obsessed with women and beer that has affected their performance.
“I have been telling the players time and again during team meetings, that most of them drink excessively and are devoted womanizers, and never think of their careers,”Chinyama said.
He added: “They forget that they don’t work in offices, they play football therefore, their physical fitness matters most. They need to start taking care of themselves and reconsider some of the decisions they make like passion for women and beer”.
Chinyama also conceded that the leaving of wonder kid, Hellings Frank Gabadinho Mhango for South Africa’ Bloemfontein Celtic, contributed to the team’ current sluggish performance.
“We have to admit Gabadinho left a gap in the team and that affected us. He was one of the reliable players we couldn’t replace easy”.
Chinyama has since demanded a major shake-up in Bullets camp if the team, popularly known as Mauletsi, Mapalestina or BB, is to get back to its best form.
“There is a need of finding our best 11 players who are disciplined and capable of delivering. We need to restructure the team for the benefit of everyone,” explained Chinyama.
