- Nomads tells Bullets their stance is irreversible
Mighty Be Forward Wanderers have openly told their traditional rivals Bullets FC that their key player’s defender Francis Mlimbika and goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa are “not for sale” no matter how much money is offered and that their stance is irreversible.
The warning comes amid reports that the “Peoples team” as it is fondly called by its followers want to rope in the two Flames internationals as part of strengthening their club ahead of their 2015 Caf Club Championship participation.
Nomads General Secretary Mike Butao said on Saturday that the players are still on contract and that are going nowhere.
“These are Wanderers players and are going nowhere because they are on contract and they have one year to go. It is up to us to decide whether to let them go or not and as of now we won’t let them go,” explained Butao.
He added: “Bullets should not waste their time hoping to sign these players they better start fetching somewhere else”
Butao claims the duo is staying and refuted claims that the players will be tempted to stay because of the K70 Million sponsorship the team secured from Japanese used car exporting company Be Forward, the players were to stay.
“Whether Be Forward was there or not, they could not leave the club” Butao said.
Meanwhile, Butao has revealed that his team is working tirelessly to sign new players in a bid to reclaim the lost glory at the Lali Lubani Club after having a poor run in the history of the club last season.
He however kept a tight lid on the list of players they are chasing.
“We are very busy on the market and Wanderers family should be optimistic that we will come out with something better and as soon as we seal any deal, we will come out and reveal to the public” said the Nomads General Secretary.
“We have respect for other clubs so we cannot sit here at tell you that we want this player or that one until everything is finalized” he added.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
