Peter Mponda: Wizards will survive

Mponda sounding confident said Wizzard FC would survive in Malawi’s top league despite the high financial demands required to fulfill assignments and allowances.

“The fact that Surestream was sponsoring the team should not intimidate us at all because sometimes money doesn’t buy success,” Mponda said.

“We had a good sponsorship but what is the point of having sponsorship when we were not happy.”

He also disclosed that there were potential sponsors with discussions at an advanced level.

“We are going to secure sponsorship but I cannot disclose their names or particulars to avoid jeopardising the deal. We will announce the names of our sponsors to the public at an appropriate time possibly within the week,” he said.

In a related development Mponda has also said the team would not drop Under-17 players who were registered to play in the Super League.

“All the players who registered to play in the Super League will not be released to Academy as it was reported. I don’t know where people got that information from because that’s not the arrangement,” he said.

Mponda parted ways with Surestream amid controversy having reportedly that he wrote a letter of resignation which was rejected.

The former Bullets and Flames captain was also accused of registering Surestream FC in his name while serving as Technical Director.

  9. Mc Phodo says:

    Indeed Peter, you need to approach George Thindwa for sponsorship since George George likes, protects and interacts with all wizards(MFWITI) and its exactly what you are doing. You are chatting, interacting and even upgrading the skills of the mfwiti. I have read it that the team will be sponsored by the FISI ( is it fisi or fisd). I dont see the last letter of that abbreviation. More dramma and dramma for Peter Mathanyula, the owner of super league football club. what about the complex sponsor, the owner of the ground you will be using.

    We said it already this boy is a fool. Bullets and wanderers struggle because of lack of funds. No money no survival in sports in this world. He thinks Arsenal FC is a poor club, Manchester United, City, Chelsea all are successful because they got money to run the clubs properly. You Mponda you think Barcelona if it was a broke club like Malawian clubs they would be successful with players like Messi, Neymar and Suarez. Football is money and in football you got to have money to run it properly.

    Mponda should go back to primary school and start afresh

  26. Think Tank says:

    He is simply not worth a trust. He betrayed the confidence Surestream had in him. He used Surestream as a launching-pad. It is like starting business with stolen capital. Iam basing my sentiments from what we have been told so far.

  27. George Lihoma. says:

    Thing are starting to get interesting. One or two days the truth will out. Hahahaha.

    The problem is that mponda is not coming open with wat made him to part ways with his boss
