Nyasa Big Bullets football club has responded to all the issues happening at the club regarding winger Peter Banda who is wanted by TS Sporting football club of South Africa and defender Precious Sambani who issued a resignation letter at the club.
Earlier this week reports indicated that TS Sporting which plays in the National First Division (NFD) wrote to the 2019 TNM super league champions asking them to release Peter Banda to join the club but according to Paul Kamanga who is Banda’s agent the people’s team want to block the deal for the Malawi national football team player.
Precious Sambani handed in a resignation letter to the club earlier this year after he tried his luck at a top club in Belgium which failed to materialise and made him unhappy.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the club has denied blocking moves for it’s players to foreign teams but the club has a policy on player transfer which ensure players secure proper deals.
“Nyasa Big Bullets would like to confirm that it has indeed been approached by TS Sporting FC for the services of the 2019 TNM Super League Player of the Season.
“When the club was approached by colleagues from TS Sporting, the club was weighing its options before sending the response”, part of the statement reads.
The club has further said once it receives good offers for it’s players the door is always open to let the players go and try their luck.
“As a team that participates in the CAF Champions League and being the Malawi Super League champions, Nyasa Big Bullets is cautious about any deals involving its football players and makes its careful assessment before releasing the players.
“We would like to remind our supporters and the wider football fraternity that Peter Banda has a running contract with Nyasa Big Bullets and that the club has the right to decide what is best for its players including the midfielder. Surprisingly, Peter’s bonafide manager is not the one speaking about the player’s interests on the matter.
“The club has allowed players to go for trials and play outside the country before. We would be happy not only to see our players but Malawian players securing deals that guarantee more opportunities in their football careers”, reads the statement.
