Moyale Barrack Interim Coach, Charles Kamanga, has sympathised with fellow Northern Region TNM Super League side Chitipa United.
Kamanga commented on the rookies after Moyale had seen off Chitipa 1-0 at Mzuzu Stadium on Sunday.
Khuda Muyaba converted from the penalty spot 10 minutes before interval to hand the Kondwani Mwalweni-led Chitipa their fifth defeat in six league games.
Chitipa missed a glorious chance to grab an equaliser in the 68th minute when Christopher Mtambo’s fired straight at Moyale goalkeeper Juma Chikwenga.
In a post-match interview, Kamanga said other coaches in the region can help Chitipa survive relegation.
“They are a good side with a good coach, but they are not ticking. It means there is a problem somewhere. They are lacking coordination in midfield, which is making their defence suffer and their strikers starve.
“So, I have been engaging them [Chitipa’s technical panel] on several occasions to see how they can solve their problems. I would love to have them in the Super League next season and eventually, have four teams from the Northern Region playing in the Super League,” Kamanga said.
Reacting to the loss, Chitipa Assistant Coach, Robert Mzinza, had unkind words for referee Misheck Juba for awarding Moyale a “cheap” penalty.
“It is really painful to lose matches now and again. But they have also won the game because of the referee’s decisions. So all our supporters just have to understand us,” a dejected Mzinza said.
Chitipa have collected one point from a possible 18, scoring once and conceding 10 times.
