Malikawa said the 10 players were sacked based on medical ground and poor performance. “The management of the club felt the only way to make headway in the plan to have a good season in the NPFL is to weed out 10 aged and unproductive players.
“This is to make way for new boys that will strengthen the team,’’ Malikawa said. The media officer disclosed that the club would recruit new players “to beef up the team in some critical areas.’’
He said the team had already resumed training ahead of this year’s campaign, assuring that the transfer formalities would be completed on time.
