Newly signed winger Righteous Banda says signing for Nyasa Big Bullets is a dream come true.
The former Civil Sporting Club player was unveiled as a Bullets player on Thursday morning in Blantyre just 24 hours after the deal was on the verge of collapsing.
Speaking to the media after completing his move, Banda said his dream was to play for Malawi’s biggest club.
“I am very delighted to have finally signed for Bullets. It’s a dream come true. I always wanted to play for this club and I am happy that I have finally signed for them,” he said.
The deal almost failed to materialize when Nyasa Manufacturing Company’s Financial Director Fleetwood Haiya refused to meet Civil’s K5.5 million asking price saying it was too much.
However, Malawi24 has established that Haiya’s decision to stop the move was influenced by some members in the executive committee who never wanted the player to be unveiled in Lilongwe.
According to reports, the move was done deliberately to prevent Noel Lipipa from shining at the expense of sponsors.
Banda has cost Bullets K9.5 million, with K4 million being his signing on fee.
In the just ended season, he was named player of the season for Civil Sporting Club.
