Big Bullets energetic midfielder Luka Muyawa has been shown an exit door due to indiscipline, as the teams chairman has described the team’s poor form as crisis.
In an exclusive interview with Nyasa Times, Big Bullets chairman Malinda Chinyama confirmed of Muyawa’s chop at the Ndirande Township based out-fit.
“Muyawa has been fired at the club because he lacks discipline. He went to Cobbe for a month after writing a resignation letter to us. If he had the blessings of the executive it could have been a different story all together, but he just went on his own. We were surprised when we saw him reporting for training again at Bullets. As executive we thought enough was enough,” said Chinyama.
However, some inside sources from the Bullets camp confided with Nyasa Times that Muyawa was fired during training in the presence of his fellow players.
It was alleged that Flames Coach who is also one of the trustees for the team, Kinnah Phiri told the former Eagle Strikers player that he was not the people’s team material before being told openly that he was surplus to requirements at Bullets.
In a telephone interview with Nyasa Times, from his base in Mzuzu, Muyawa confirmed about his sacking and describing it as unfair.
“It is true and l am back to my base in Mzuzu, this is unfair because it means l have nowhere to play as you are aware that the transfer window was closed. I was even surprised with their decision because l asked them to clear me so that l joins Cobbe but they refused to my dismay,” said Muyawa.
He went on to say, “It was during training when Kinnah told me that my services at Bullets were no longer needed because l was not committed. All in all l am not much worried because you never know it is God’s wish,” he said.
But Big Bullets Chairman disputed Muyawa’s sentiments by stressing that it was Bullets executive’s decision due to his indiscipline.
“He should blame himself for lack of discipline and even his performance was not that impressive after coming from Cobbe where he went to try his luck,” he stressed.
Quizzed on the current poor form for the club in the TNM Super League, Chinyama described the situation as a crisis is in the history of Bullets.
“This is crisis and it has never happened in the history of Bullets. We sense danger of fighting relegation unless our players should do something. We feel there are many problems that have rocked the club from our players and supporters. As lam talking to you we have three camps of supporters fighting for positions, as a result sabotage has crippled in,” he said.
The chairman also accused players of lacking fighting spirit, “We cannot keep on blaming the coaching panel because we had Mpesi, Gilbert and Nkhwazi before employing Ng’onamo. Can we say all these coaches have a problem? I do not think so, as the executive we are trying our best to give these players’ allowances but results are not coming,” said Chinyama.
He however was optimistic that things will be back to normal soon.
Bullets are fourth from the bottom having accumulated 25 points from 20 games.
