Nyasa Big Bullets have issued a strong warning to the team’s first choice goalkeeper Ernest Kakhobwe, Miracle Gabeya as well as Precious Phiri to sign their contract or leave the team.
The warning followed the trio’s rejection of their signing-on fee, they said was not good enough.
The three players were each offered K2.5 million signing-on fee which they said was on the lower side.
“Bullets is offering me K2.5 million for a two-year contract. This is signing-on fee not salary nor game bonuses. What am I going to do with this money? No I cannot take that offer. I will be training alone,” Kakhobwe said.
Gabeya, who was touted as a promising defender, but his career has been affected by recurring injuries, also said the fact that the signing-on is payable in instalment is unfair.
“Same deal [K2.5 million for two years]. This is a lower amount and being payable in instalments, I cannot do something useful with it. I am training at home now,” he said.
However, Phiri has backed as he finally signed for Nyasa Big Bullets, saying he wanted to consult his manager before signing.
“It’s done. I am ready to play for the team,” he said.
Meanwhile former Silver Strikers defender Hadji Wali and Ntopwa FC midfielder Mphatso Magaleta have been unveiled as Nyasa Big Bullets players.
The two players have signed a three-year deal with the Peoples Team.
