Perhaps Franco Ndawa has been watching Harry Enfield’s comedy Scouser routine, as the Nyasa Big Bullets coach has urged Bullets fans to “calm down” after seeing his side draw against Moyale Barracks on Saturday in the TNM Super League at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
The People’s Team drew 0-0 with the Mzuzu based soldiers out-fit and afterwards Ndawa said he was shocked by the reaction inside the Kamuzu Stadium after striker Muhammad Sulumba saw his penalty saved.
“It’s only a game of football. It’s like it’s the last thing in your life and we have to calm this down. It was just a first game of the season and we have a long journey. I urge our fans to give support to these boys and they will deliver,” he said.
Referring to the atmosphere inside the stadium after Sulumba’s penalty was saved, he said: “I hope I’m not the only person in the stadium who thought ‘this is not the end of the world’. We can work on this.”
However, Ndawa warned that the rest of teams would be gunning for the People’s Team.
“The problem is the other teams don’t wait for us — they want to win, they want to beat us as we are the current holders of the League.”
The next Bullets assignment is on Sunday against Red Lions in Balaka. The last time the two teams met was in a pre-season match at the Kamuzu Stadium when Bullets pruned the soldiers 4-0 with Sulumba scoring three goals.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
