Mighty Wanderers FC players resumed training on Wednesday after a boycott since last Friday over unpaid bonuses and monthly upkeep.
A senior player, who asked for anonymity, said the club owes them bonuses for five matches and salaries for the past two to three months.
“We understand that the club is struggling financially, but it has a contractual obligation to look into our welfare.
“We were forced to boycott training because the situation was worsening,” said the player.
He said they resumed training after getting an assurance from the club’s management that the issue will be sorted out.
The club’s technical director Yasin Osman played down suggestions that the boycott would affect the team’s performance in their league game against Chikwawa United tomorrow.
“The situation was bad because we had players being chucked out of houses due to failure to pay rentals.
“But it [the boycott] will not have a real impact because we only failed to train for two to three days,” said Osman.
He also said as at now, the Nomads are safe from relegation even if they lose their two remaining games against Chikwawa and Airborne Rangers.
“But we need to win the remaining games so that we move two or three places up the ladder,” he said.
Wanderers are on 10th position with 31 points.
