RONALD “Rooney” Chitiyo says it’s an honour to join Malawi’s biggest and most successful football club after he secured a three-year contract at serial champions, Nyasa Big Bullets, following a month-long trial.

Chitiyo will join former Dynamos coach, Kalisto Pasuwa. 

He was offloaded by Simba Bhora during the off season.

His career has taken him to Monomotapa, Dynamos and CAPS United in over a decade. 

Chitiyo is Nyasa Big Bullets’ seventh signing of the summer transfer window.

The 31-year-old attacking midfielder expressed his excitement to have joined Bullets. 

Through the club’s media, he said was delighted to have signed a long-term contract with Malawi’s biggest and most successful club.

“I am very happy to join one of the biggest teams in Malawi. With my experience, I want to lead these youngsters because I saw that Big Bullets have got many youngsters so, with my experience, I will try by all means to help them. 

“Malawian football is now more competitive than before and the intensity here is high and I am very happy to join this league.

“It’s a challenge to me because Bullets have been winning before and for me to be part of them it means they should keep on winning. 

“To be playing football outside your country is like an achievement because it’s not easy for people to accept you when you are coming from another country, but here, I am very happy and the reception was top-notch,” he told club media.

Chitiyo is the third Zimbabwean player to play for Bullets under Pasuwa after the club signed Kenneth Pasuwa and Colin Mujuru

He is Bullets’ seventh signing in the ongoing local transfer window.

They have signed Babatunde Adepoju, Mathews Masamba, Colin Mujuru, Sean McBrams, Innocent Nyasulu and Lloyd Aaron.
