Mighty Wanderers Captain Alfred Manyozo Jr has attributed the team’s change in fortunes to unity and staying focused.
Manyozo said they were hoping to challenge for titles this season following the good foundation which the Chancy Gondwe led executive has put in place.
“We want to assure all our fans that we will try our best to keep fighting as we aim to be one of the best. We are grateful to the leadership for their tireless efforts in trying to keep the team in shape and remain motivated despite hard economic times,” Manyozo said.
Wanderers were outside the top 10 when the new executive assumed power. The side had gone six games without registering a win.
Now the Lali Lubani Road outfit are third on the table with 37 points from 21 points.
Wanderers Team Manager Foster Namwera also paid tribute to the new executive, saying the side can now challenge for trophies.
“The chairperson [Gondwe] and his team are not only wonderful people but true football administrators who know how to motivate the players. They have tried to encourage the boys and members of the technical panel to work hard and get the results because it is the results that attract sponsors,” Namwera said.
Gondwe said his ultimate goal was to make Wanderers a force to reckon with once again.
“I do not like speaking because I am a man of action. People must watch this space. All things being equal, we will be back at our best and win trophies. We have a reputation to protect and we will jealously guard it,” he said, adding that they will pile pressure on Super League leaders Nyasa Big Bullets and strong contenders Silver Strikers.
