Civo United coach spits fire


Struggling TNM Super League side, Civo United, have blamed the Super League of Malawi (Sulom) for exempting the Lilongwe outfit from games for the last three weeks.

Civo last played in the league on October 29 when they drew 1-1 with Mzuni FC at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.

Speaking after losing 1-2 in a friendly match against Moyale Barracks FC on Wednesday at Civo Stadium, Coach Charles Manda said inactivity was contributing to his charges’ loss of form.


“Yes, I accept the fact that we are not performing well, but we are now into a fourth week without a league match,” Manda said.

“Is the season still on? We are very worried because our counterparts are playing, and this will affect us in the battle against relegation.”

Sulom General Secretary, Williams Banda, said it was hard to harmonise the fixtures as other teams are involved in Fisd Challenge Cup games.


“As Sulom, we are trying our best to sort this out. As you can see on the standings, Moyale have played 22 matches and Kamuzu Barracks 23. Last week, Silver Strikers did not play, and this week they are not playing as well. Teams should understand the difficult situation we are in,” Banda said.

Civo, who are on position 14 with 21 points from 24 matches, have six games to wind up the season.
