Trouble is brewing at Blue Eagles where players are demanding the immediate payment of their Carlsberg Cup bonuses from the club.
The Malawi Police Service side emerged champions after beating Escom United 1-0 at Civo Stadium on December 9.
The cops pocketed K7 million and the club is yet to distribute the bonuses from the loot.
A number of senior players expressed their discontent with the club's failure to pay their bonuses before Christmas.
The players had hoped that they would smile all the way to the bank before Christmas Day so that they can spend nice time with their families and girlfriends. They have been stunned by the club which has been giving flimsy excuses for not paying them their dues.
As of yesterday, the club had not yet paid the bonuses prompting a protest from the irate players.
Influential striker Innocent Bokosi, who literary scored in all Carlsberg Cup games except the final, vented his anger on his Facebook wall.
"Koma matimu enawa kuwina cup koma kuvutika kulandila ndalama zoona zimenezi, tichoke timu kapena? pazivuta kulim¬bikiratu, mwina tiyese matimu enawa (Some of these clubs, we won a cup yet they are failing to pay our bonuses. May be we should leave the team. It will be very difficult for us to work hard in future,)," Bokosi lamented yes¬terday.
Another striker Charles Ngosi also accused the club of not having the welfare of the players at heart.
"True bro ... tayesetsa koma it aint working our way. Christmas with no money koma ndalama tinapanga za Carlsberg? Fine only heaven knows. But they don't know we have responsibilities. Even our parents are counting on us," Ngosi wrote on Bokosi's Facebook page.
The club's management was not available for comment as most of the team's officials were on holiday.
