*Phiri battles to recover dues
Lobatse side BMC's saga has taken another spin with management writing to the Premier League and Botswana Football Association (BFA) requesting that be MOBILE prize money be paid directly to the company instead of the club account.

This, in addition to confirmed reports that salaries will also be paid directly from the mother company's coffers, has been done to allegedly thwart club chairman Sonny Phiri from cashing what he claims to be owed.Indications are that Phiri reportedly claims he covered some expense and was to be reimbursed when the league releases the cash prize. The amount in question is unclear with sources within the club throwing around different figures.BMC's corporate communications manager, Tiro Kganela, confirmed the developments, insisting no one in their individual capacity, would be reimbursed allegedly because there were no records.

"We wrote two letters to the League - the first was verifying the transfer and the other was to make sure the prize money goes to the company to clear players," Kganela told Mmegi Sport.He added the salaries would also be paid directly to players from the mother company. "We did that already, we need to make sure the transition is done smoothly."Kganela, who was suspended by Phiri from his position as vice chairman, blatantly reiterated that no individual would get paid from those monies.
