The play maker is said to be unhappy with the amount of money he was offered in his contract and has since stopped attending Nyasa Big Bullets’ training sessions and matches until his demands of an increased offer are met, Malawi24 understands.
Dalitso Sailesi has threatened his employers that he will quit the club if his demands of receiving more than K2 million signing on fee are not met.
According to our findings, Bullets convinced the former Blantyre United winger to sign a four year deal with the club worthy K1.2 million and he did exactly that but upon sitting down with his agent, Sailesi returned back to his bosses where he demanded to have his money doubled despite having already signed the contract.
However, knowing that he had already signed the contract, his bosses reasoned with him to atleast wait till the end of the season before his package is reviewed by the club but the player turned down this request.
The club’s General Secretary Kelvin Moyo refused to comment on the matter but he referred us to the office of Casper Jangale at the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) and Super League of Malawi (Sulom) where Sailesi’s copies of contracts are.
“Just go to FAM and Sulom and ask them to show you Dalitso Sailesi’s copies of contracts,” said Moyo.
On his part, Sailesi said: “I will not play until my problems are sorted out. It’s better to quit rather than be oppressed so if they choose not to hear me out, I will stop playing for their club,” he said.
Sailesi was not part of Bullets’ 2-0 victory over Wizards FC on Wednesday and has made it clear that he will only play for the club if his demands are met.
