Nyasa Big Bullets striker Patrick Phiri is now a free agent following the expiry of his contract with the People’s Team.
The attacker confirmed that his contract expired with Bullets a month ago and that the club has not shown any interest in renewing it.
“As it is now, I am no longer a Bullets player. Actually, I am no longer training with Bullets.
“I am just keeping fit by training with some community teams,” said the pint-sized striker who struggled for a first team place last season.
Phiri, who joined Bullets from Wizards FC, said two months ago he tried his luck at South Africa’s lower league GladAfrica Championship side Pretoria Callies, but he did not make the grade.
He claimed he passed trials, but could not clinch a deal due to differences on contractual agreements.
“We could not reach an agreement on the perks, so I just returned home,” said Phiri.
He has, however, promised to return to TNM Super League action soon.
“I will be back in action very soon. Just watch the space,” said the striker who can also play as an attacking midfielder.
Phiri added that he is open to negotiations with any team, including Bullets.
But Bullets chief administration officer Albert Chigoga said in an interview that the player was released after the expiry of his contract.
