Mzuni FC’s run in the TNM Super League is a sign that they can challenge for the title, according to their Assistant Coach, Millias Pofera.
The Green Intellectuals have made an impressive start to the league, collecting seven points from their opening three games.
Pofera said his team’s run in the league is not by coincidence.
“When Sulom [Super League of Malawi] was coming up with this tournament, it did not mean that it has to be won by the same team season-in-season-out. We can also do it.
“If we are at the top it means that we have worked for it and it is well deserved. That also means that possibly we can win the league,” the former Dedza Young Soccer mentor explained.
The Coach Alex Ngwira’s side swept aside toothless Mafco FC side 3-0 at Mzuzu Stadium on Sunday.
Lazarus Nyemera converted on either side of Hudson Milanzi’s long-range strike to thrust Mzuni to the top of the standings.
Mafco Coach, Temwa Msuku, conceded defeat, but felt Mzuni’s opening goal from the penalty spot should not have stood.
“Everything did not go well with us in the match. I do not have any problem with their second and third goals, but rather the first one. They were awarded a cheap penalty [on the stroke of half-time]… it let the players down,” he said.
The Salima-based soldiers suffered a 2-4 defeat to Moyale Barracks in the Airtel Top 8 Cup a day earlier.
Msuku has since conceded that his team are sailing through tough times, adding that their management will find ways to rectify the problems.
