Masters Security Services FC has said reports of unpaid salaries and bonuses have been “over-exaggerated” with Managing Director of the security services firm Alfred Gangata downplaying the story, saying players have been “sorted out.”
When the team was promoted to Malawi’s flagship football TNM Super League the Gangata touted that the team would offer lucrative package no current team can afford.
This attracted some of the established and big names including former Malawi national football team captain Joseph Kamwendo, Mozambique based professional goalkeeper Simplex Nthara and Robin Ngalande the only one who managed to sign a six-month contract which has since expired and has secured a move to South Africa.
Gangata told Nyasa Times on Thursday that they may have some issues with outstanding payments of their players but insisted any issues have been “taken care.”
“He said I can say without any fear of contradiction that our club doesn’t have any financial fears,” he said.
“I will have to check with team manager if there any player who is being owed allowances and if we didn’t pay any , we will solve the problem as soon as possible,” Gangata said.
“We might have forgotten or neglected one or two of them inadvertently.”
The team’s general secretary Zachariah Nyirenda also claimed that the players were exaggerating the situation and there is no crisis.
