Malawi’s highest paid footballer revealed
earns K400 000 a month…
If you are a follower of English football, then you have an idea of what Manchester United’ Paul Pogba is earning per week or how much is Alex Sanchez earning at Arsenal but you just do not know the highest paid player in Malawi.
Questions have been asked by soccer lovers in the country as to how much are our local players from the elite league earns per month.
Well, a wage bill document from Be Forward Wanderers was leaked in the social media on Sunday afternoon.
From the figures that Malawi24 saw, Peter Wadabwa is the highest paid player in the elite league, with Jabulani Linje and Joseph Kamwendo coming second and third respectively. The duo are at K230 000 and K220 000 a month respectively.
According to what we have sourced, Wanderers wage bill is the highest in the top flight seconded by cross town rivals Big Bullets FC.
In the month of September, Wanderers used K4, 275, 000.00 in players upkeep allowances, with more than K1, 135, 000.00 being used in players’ rent.
The lowest earner in the team is Peter Gatoma who, on average, earns K30 000 per month.
Nigeria’s Amos Bello, Harry Nyirenda and team captain Francis Mulimbika are fourth, fifth and sixth respectively as they are earning K200 000 per month but the former is currently negotiating with Wanderers over an improved contract but Genk Nakamura’s package is not indicated on the list as he is paid directly by sponsors Be Forward from Japan.
In the technical panel, Jack Chamangwana is the highest as he is pocketing K300 000 despite being inactively involved at Wanderers, with team manager Steve Madeira pocketing K140 000 a month.
There you go, Wanderers are paying their players good despite struggling in the top flight.
Only time will tell as to when the team will start delivering in the top flight but when it comes to the players welfare, they are the best.
