Malawi champions Silver to beef up squad to win more trophies

Supporters of TNM Super League champions Silver Strikers should expect to see new faces coming to the club next season, says Owen Munthali, the team’s General Secretary.

The Lilongwe giants were crowned champions of the TNM Super league on Sunday despite losing their last game 1-0 to Mighty Wanderers and staying level on points with their closest rivals Big Bullets at 58 points apiece but Silver had superior goal aggregate.

Silver has managed to win only one trophy out of the possible four, which explains the desire for a new roaster.

“We are very happy with what the team has achieved, but still more there were some two or three things which didn’t go well, like in the cup competitions we didn’t do well. We will try to prepare for the next season and fix all the areas which had some loopholes. Our supporters should expect to see new players coming,” said Munthali whose team has often been criticized of not growing its own talent and relying heavily on buying players.

When asked whether buying new players would hinder the development of young players, Munthali said that the team is committed to youth development.

“We have a new coach who also likes to use young players, and we assure our fans that next season they will see more young players coming into the Silver Strikers squad from our reserve side. We believe that young players are the future of this country and the world in general, so our team is committed to youth development,” Munthali said.

Meanwhile, Silver Strikers midfielder Harvey Mkacha bought from Zomba United hopes to do better next season.

“I had a good season, only that I was very troubled with the injuries…which I feel affected my performances but now I feel good.

“The fans are yet to see why Silver Strikers brought me here from Zomba United and I feel that next season people will see the reason,” Mkacha said.
