Silver Strikers Football Club head coach Stain Chirwa has pushed the blame to the Executive Committee on his side’s recent poor showing in both the league and cup competitions.
This comes barely two days after the Bankers were knocked out of the tournament by the defending champions of the prestigious Carlsberg Cup Big Bullets F.C 3-0 at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Chirwa said he submitted names of players that he needed to be bring into the squad as to beef up the squad during the ongoing transfer window but the executive hasn’t yet acted on the matter.
The team has been struggling since the departure of some of its key players at the beginning of the 2015 soccer season.
Chirwa without mentioning names maintained that he need at least a new signing in almost all the departments including in goals.
“Everyone can see that we need to bring in some good and experienced players after losing almost half of the main team to other teams abroad” Chirwa said on Monday.
Nyasa Times understands that the Bankers are chasing the signatures of Mighty Be Forward Wanderers keepers Bester Phiri and Richard Chipuwa, Civo United defender John Lanjesi and Bullets in form striker Chiukepo Msowoya.
Reports indicate that Civo has set a price tag of K4 Million for John Lanjesi while Wanderers are demanding K3 Million for Phiri but as of Chipuwa, the Nomads say he is not for sale.
Bullets F.C has also emphasized that their man of the moment Msowoya who underwent trials in South Africa and Lebanon the past few weeks is “not for sale”.
Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports indicates that Silver is planning to rope in former Flames coach Young Chimodzi and Silver Legend Lovemore Fazili to take over as head coach and deputy respectively.
