Technical director for Malawi super league relegated side, Fisd Wizards, Peter Mponda, has contradicted remarks made by the relegated team’s assistant coach MacDonald Yobe on the issue of selling their players.
Yobe recently told one of the local newspapers that the rookies will keep their players and will not sell their arsenal even if they the face axe in the top flight league.
But speaking to the media following their 3 – 1 defeat on Sunday against Mighty wanderers, Mponda says his team will accept offers from any team who want the services of the club’s players.
“The players have been matured. Others are playing in the national team so they need to remain and play in the Super League. The door is open and we are going to accept offers that are serious and want the services of our players,” said Mponda.
The team’s goalkeeper Brighton Munthali and captain Levison Maganizo as well as Ernest Tambe and Mike Mkwate are highly linked with big teams like Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers.
Meanwhile, the former Flames captain is optimistic that even though the tiki-taka style of play team has been relegated from the top flight, they will play one season in Nsejjere league and will be back in 2017.
Wizards have been relegated together with Airborne Rangers after registering three victories in 27 games and have 21 points with just a single game to wrap up the season.
