‘Unlucky Malata needs counselling’
After some incomprehensible gaffes both at national team and his club, ranging from own goal s to conceding penalties that left supporters baying for his blood, Lucky Malata, could be the most infamous player in the Super League.
Now his club has accepted the reality that the player needs counseling.
Silver Strikers acting general secretary, Fred Kalonga says the Bankers captain needs psychological help to bring back his confidence.
In recent weeks, the Silver skipper has been under heavy criticism from some section of fans due to his errors on the pitch.
Since returning from the Cosafa Cup in South Africa, Malata has been committing serious blunders on the pitch that are resulting in goals.
In an interview this week, Kalonga said he had noted that majority of Silver players, including Malata, were facing psychological problems.
“Lucky is still a good player, but it seems he has lost his confidence and we need to help him to regain his confidence on the pitch.
“He is reading too much into what people are saying about his performance,” said Kalonga.
However, Kalonga could not disclose if the club was engaging a psychologist to help the player get out of the situation.
His dip in form has also contributed to Silver’s poor form in the league this season.
The Central Bankers are on position seven on the log table with 19 points from 13 games.
They have lost six games, drawn once and won six games this season in the league.
