Malawi league leaders Big Bullets chairman Sam Chilunga has revealed that player’s welfare will be the first priority under his administration.
Speaking during yesterday’s Game Plan program on Zodiak TV, Chilunga disclosed that all Bullets players will be on medical scheme as one way of improving their health.
“When we are talking about player’s welfare it’s not about money. Players should be on medical cover. They should be assisted in times of funerals and weddings,” Chilunga said.
The medical scheme initiative came to life after the death of Bullets player late Douglas Chirambo, a situation which pushed FAM to introduce the system so that each team in the Super League should register their players on medical scheme.
However, on elections, Chilunga who works at Reserve Bank of Malawi said he will follow the team’s constitution.
“If supporters says let’s hold elections then definitely we are going to have elections. I respect the team’s constitution. However I came to Bullets to assist them and it’s easy for me to leave the club,” he said.
Meanwhile, the people’s team, under Chilunga’s administration, has managed to secure a MK500,000 sponsorship package from Nyasa Tobacco Manufacturing Company. On sponsorship launch, the chairman said they will announce the date when everything is set.
He also assured fans that the team will participate in the Caf Champions League next year.
