Be Forward Wanderers have accused Football Association of Malawi (FAM) and Super League of Malawi (Sulom) of favoritism, saying the Nomads are victims of their own success due to their solid financial base.
Wanderers through its General Secretary Mike Butao said tfootball administrators in the country are fond of punishing teams with money yet when teams without money commit similar offenses, they are not ordered to pay such huge fines.
The sentiments were in response to the latest charges brought up by Sulom on Monday where the 2017 Super League winners were charged for misconduct during a match at Chitowe Stadium a fortnight ago.
“We are the victims of our own success. If you have observed, FAM and Sulom are quick to punish Bullets and Wanderers because we are the only two teams with solid financial base.”
“When similar offenses are committed by smaller clubs without solid financial base, no penalties are given so it’s bad and we are not happy with this trend,” said Butao.
Earlier this month, the FA ordered the Lali Lubani side to pay more than K2 million following offenses committed during the Carlsberg Cup and Fisd Cup matches earlier last month.
