Nyasa Big Bullets is still on the market as it looks to capture players as per instructed by the team’s Zimbabwean Coach, Callisto Pasuwa, a move which has seen one of the coach’s proposed targets, Precious Sambani, from Namiwawa Rangers.
The team is planning to have a maximum number of 27 players against last season’s 28, a plan which has been revealed by the team’s Chief Executive Officer, Fleetwood Haiya, who earlier hinted that they are going to make four signings in preparations for the 2019 season as instructed by Pasuwa.
However, Haiya said the team might also increase the number of players if need be due to other problems that may arise as they are also planning to take part again in this year’s CAF Champions League.
“We can add two more to go up to 29 should need a rise but we believe 27 is good for us. Additions can be considered depending on other factors such as injuries, suspensions and our participation in the Caf Champions League,” he confirmed to a leading local Newspaper.
He also made it clear that some of the players who did not perform well in last year’s campaign will be loaned out to other teams together with some of the team’s reserves players.
“We cannot manage to keep everyone in the team. So, the technical panel will advise on which players to keep and which ones to loan out so that they get game-time elsewhere.
“We have several players in the reserve side who are ready, but we may have to send them out on loan first for their own good. They need to gain some experience elsewhere before we recall them,” he said.
Meanwhile, one of the team’s long serving players, Fischer Anong’a Kondowe, has commented on the matter, saying he still has a lot to contribute to the team.
“My body is telling me that I can continue playing this year and that is what I will do. I do not need anyone to tell me that my time is up. It is my body that will tell me when to stop,” Kondowe told the Paper.
The transfer window remains open until the end of the month.
