Mighty Be Forward Wanderers has increased bonuses for its players to K60,000 up from K30,000 saying they did that to motivate their players as they rally themselves to win the 2017 title after years waiting
Wanderers have gone 11 years without winning the league title and their current form puts them on the pole position of ending the title drought which has eluded them for years and earn a name of “Arsenal of Malawi”.
Nomad’s players were pocketing K30, 000 for a win and the additional mounts makes them earn K60, 000 for a win for both league and cup games.
Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, told the Malawi News Agency (MANA) on Sunday in Lilongwe after their 2-0 victory against Blue Eagles that they thought it wise to hike the game bonus as a motivation for the players.
He said the new hike was with immediate effect and the first pay hike they would get is from the win against Blue Eagles.
