EPAC FC owner, Dean Josaya, has dismissed reports that the team has been sold to relegated side, Civo United, saying the team is intact.
On Thursday, media reports suggested that Epac has been sold to Civo as a way of bringing the team back into the Super League.
“We have never had any discussion with Civo to buy out Epac. But of course I am deeply concerned that the team I once chaired is out of the Super League. It is possible that some people are taking my concern to mean that I am going to sell my team to save Civo from playing in the lower league.
Let me put it on record that this will not happen. We still have our place in the Super League and we have commenced training,” Josaya said.
Earlier in the week, the team lost the services of coach Audrow Makonyola who has been engaged by Blue Eagles as an assistant to coach De Klerk Msakakuona.
Josaya said Makonyola left at the expiry of his contract with the team and that his assistant had replaced him. Civo general secretary, Thomas Makiwa, declined to comment on the matter, saying he was in a meeting.
But Super League of Malawi (Sulom) vice general secretary, Thoko Chazema, said should the two teams agree on the sale, the association will sit down to discuss its eligibility.
Civo United were relegated from the elite league after finishing on position 15 with 25 points, while Epac survived with an eleventh position finish on 34 points.
