Nyasa Bib Bullets have taken a bold decision to exclude first choice goalkeeper Ernest Kakhobwe and defender Miracle Gabeya in the team’s squad for the 2022/23 season announced on Friday.
This comes barely a day after the club warned Kakhobwe, who is also first choice national football team goalkeeper, Gabeya and Precious Phiri to sign the contract or leave the team over disagreements on signing-on fee of pegged at K2.5 million each for two years.
However, Phiri backtracked to sign the deal, saying he wanted to consult his manager.
“Nyasa Big Bullets Football Club is delighted to announce its 2022/23 squad ready for registration with the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) and Super League of Malawi ahead of the new season that kicks off on 5 March 2022.
“The club has offered new contracts to the players whose contracts expired at the end of 2020/21 football season. Similarly, seven players promoted from the Reserves Team have been offered senior contracts.
