Malawian coach Meke Mwase title hopes at Mbabane Highlanders in Swaziland was shattered after Leopards beat Mbabane Swallows to finish top of the league.
Mwase’s side also won their last game 2-1 but it was not enough to hand the former Malawian national team captain his first ever title as coach.
Highlanders were on pole position but their two-all draw last week cost them the title.
But the result did not go without controversies with allegations of match fixing levelled against Leopards as Mbabane Swallows featured a weak side to avoid giving their rivals the Highlanders.
“I will still wait for your title my Lord for I know your time is the best,” Mwase said.
Highlanders were hoping for unprecedented return to the top league from the lower league to end their eight years title drought.
The former Bullets and Mighty Be Forward defender took charge of the team at the start of the season and also roped in former teammate at Wanderers Charles Manda as assistant coach.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
