TNM Super League champions Nyasa Big Bullets say they did not sign new players in the provisional transfer window that closed on Friday night because they have depth in quality.
The People’s Team is one of the few teams that did not make use of the provisional window, the other being Civil Service (Civo) United.
Bullets assistant coach Peter ‘Mjojo’ Mponda yesterday said: “We have the squad to defend the league. As the saying goes, if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.
“We sat down as a technical panel and looked at what we have and felt we are good to go.
“We have the quality and already the lads did well last season and our head coach Callisto Pasuwa has shown confidence in them.”
Prior to the latest transfer window, Bullets promoted two players from their reserve side—left back Gift Jana and midfielder-cum-striker Stanley Billiat.
Also back in the Bullets fold is defender Miracle Gabeya after failing to secure a team in South Africa.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) general secretary (GS) Williams Banda yesterday said 32 transfers were processed.
He said the only pending issue is that of Blue Eagles midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda who wants to join Be Forward Wanderers while the cops reportedly sealed a K4 million transfer deal with Silver Strikers.
Barely hours after Eagles confirmed the deal, Kumwenda denied knowledge of the agreement and, instead, deposited K3.5 million into the club’s account. This was the amount which the Area 30-based cops asked the Nomads to pay when they expressed interest in the player before the deal fell through.
The Sulom GS said the issue has been referred to Football Association of Malawi (FAM) for its perusal.
The high-profile signings during the window were former Silver Strikers West African duo striker Mike Tetteh and defender Yunus Shariff, who have joined Wanderers while the Central Bankers have taken on board former Civo left back Nixon Mwase and striker Rodwell Robert from Luannar FC.
The delayed 2020/21 season kicks off this weekend.
