Big Bullets in dilemma!

49

Malawi super league heavyweights Big Bullets are stuck in the mud on whether or not to take part in next year’s Caf Champions League after being assured of support by their sponsors.

The people’s team defended the  Super League title on Wednesday after beating Azam Tigers FC 2-1.

The league triumph earned them eligibility to participate in the continental showpiece but they are yet to reach a decision regarding their participation.

In an interview with a local radio station, the club’s vice general secretary Kelvin Moyo said it is their wish to have the team compete against some of the best clubs in Africa but they are still pondering over the issue.

He said their technical panel will decide the team’s fate as the club has left the matter in the panel’s hands.

Bullets remain undecided on Caf participation.

He said: “We want our players to rest because they are people and not machines, as you know it has been a busy season. The technical panel will decide whether we will take part or not.”

The Blantyre based side participated in the last edition of Africa’s elite club competition which was won by TP Mazembe of Democratic Republic of Congo.

The  champions failed to make it to group stages of the competition having been booted out in the second preliminary stages by Sudanese club, Al Hilal. They are the only local team that has ever participated in the Champions League with the first time being 2004.

In their first attempt they managed to reach the competition’s last 8 knockout stage, thanks to Kinnah Phiri’s mentor ship.

Former President Bakili Muluzi made it easy for Bullets as he rendered financial assistance to the club.

With the coming in of Nyasa Company who will be pumping in K100 million per year, the people’s team can now easily cross borders.

Their involvement in the contest last year was marred by financial difficulties and they depended on grants from well-wishers as well as loans.

  1. Chiteam chathuchi chikuyenera kupita ku CAF,momwe tavera masalaray awakwezera maplayer ndiye akuyenera akagwire nthito yotamandika komanso izi zikapangitsa kuti TNM SUPER REAGE ikhare yathuyathu.

    Which means apart from our supponsor NYASA COMPANY we have also TNM which grant our beloved team funds thru reage.And spending year/s not taking part in CAF will result in poor performance in the year to attend CAF.

    All in all i support the motion that the team should participate in CAF CHAMPIONS so that all supponsorship should be used in CAF.

  2. Its only BB who can participate in CAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE in Malawi.Ma team enawa amangothoka koma sangakwanitse nd a mantha.Go Maulle Go!

  5. We can.We just need to buy quality players locally or across the border.Look at Tp Mazembe, they have a great team full of quality because they have money.With money, many things are possible.Mulungu ndilibe nanu mawu, mumabweresa mayankho nthawi imene adani akusangalala kuti watheratu.Yes, your time is the best.Bravo mapalestine!!!!Amen.

  6. oky that’s gud idea for caf participation bt tikonze kaye zina ndi zina kut deal nd nyasa ikamadzatha tidzankhale nd zolozeka Monga new bus and permanent club house.

  7. Me as a true supporter of BB I would say the team should not be in dilemma.It should NOT participate in CAF simply coz of sponsorship.First the team should in 1-2 yrs of sponsorship build the team fully by possibly ropping in new players and upgrading the coaches licences.During this same time the team will also build trust with the sponsors

  8. Tikuyenela kupita bcoz panopa ndalama sivuto komano vuto ndima player atopa koma akanagolimbikila azipuma nkati mwa week pamenepo bwanji bwana VGC bcoz kumene kuja ndiye tikuma phunzirako mpira plus so kuti timatha kale palibe club inga pikisane ndi bb the whole world of malawi panopa ma game achithanu atha mu super leuague bcoz bullets yatenga chikho asala ndima friendly games okha okha!
