Moyale Barracks Football Club Assistant Coach, Charles Kamanga, has expressed worry about the bad condition of the football pitch at Mzuzu Stadium, saying it has contributed to the team’s poor display on home soil.
In all the last three games, Moyale has played at home; no victory has been registered, but disappointing stand-off against rivals Mzuni FC, Big Bullets and another over the weekend against Civil Service (Civo) United.
Just after the Soldiers of Kaning’ina’s 0-0 draw against Civo at Mzuzu Stadium during the weekend, Malawi News Agency (Mana) talked to lions of Kaning’ina’s assistant coach, Kamanga, who lambasted the condition of the pitch.
“Though we have been using this pitch as our home ground during games, we train here only once per week and that has killed our type of play because the ground is very bumpy,” he said.
However, he said his team should not be ruled out of the competition in the elite league because of the draws they have registered recently. He said his troops will bounce back.
On his part, Civil Service United Coach, Charles Manda, downplayed the condition of the pitch but instead heaped praise on his boys for displaying “good football.”
“We have displayed good football and created more scoring opportunities but our counterparts were saved by their goalkeeper,” he said.
With the result, Moyale Barracks are on position six with 30 points while Civo are on position twelve with 19 points.
