Nyasa Big Bullets chairperson Noel Lipipa has said the team’s players still stand a chance of being rewarded K1 million even if they don not defend the TNM Super League title.
Clarifying the K1 million pledge he made to the players, Lipipa said he will honour the pledge as long as they win their last game against Blue Eagles FC this Saturday.
Bullets are trailing Kamuzu Barracks (KB) by a point going into their last games against Eagles and Dwangwa United respectively.
The People’s Team will be praying that Dwangwa should either beat or hold KB and that they should beat the Eagles.
But should KB win, then it will be the end of the road for Bullets
“As a matter of clarification, I would like to put the record straight that the condition for the offer is not to win the league but the last game.
“It is just part of the drive to motivate them to win the last match because you never know what could happen in the end,” he said.
“Of course, the odds appear to be in KB’s favour since they are a point above us.”
Apart from Lipipa’s K1 million pledge, the club also increased the bonus for a win from K25 000 to K40 000, specifically for the last three games.
Team captain Chiukepo Msowoya said the offers have boosted the players’ morale.
“Of course, the last three games were must-win for us to boost our title chances, but the pledges have also inspired us to give out something extra,” he said. n
