KB Coach Phambala cries foul over fixture ile-up: ‘3 games in 7 days is unrealistic’
Kamuzu Barracks (KB) Head Coach Billy Phambala has complained of lack of help from football authorities after mounting his side with three fixtures within a period of seven days.
Straight from a 3-1 humilliating defeat they suffered to Nyasa Big Bullets at the Civo Stadium in Lilongwe last Sunday, the league defending champions are expected to travel to the southern part of Malawi-Blantyre to be precise on Wednesday where they are scheduled to play againstBlantyre United at the Chiomoni Stadium in a Fisd Challenge Cup knockout match.
They will again be forced to bear the brunt of another long exhaustive journey travelling back to Lilongwe and proceed to Northern Region City of Mzuzu where they will face fellow soldiers Moyale Barracks in a league match over the weekend.
Phambala said congested fixtures takes a toll on the players.
“Playing three competative games in seven days is not normal and unrealistic,” said Phambala.
But he went on to accept that they will proceed to fulfil the fixtures.
“Its not only us, other teams have been complaining but our football administrators seemsdoesn’t want to change so whatelse can we do? We will go and play,” he said.
Kamuzu Barracks are struggling in the league and their current form is doubtful on whether they will defend the league.
They also haven’t been impressive in recent Competitions (Carlsberg and Airtel Top 8 Cups) as they were knocked out in early stages.
But Phambala has maintained that his side will soon get the hung of it [League].
The team is currently on position 10 in the league with 22 points half of the current leaders Mighty Be Forward Wanderers from 19 games played so far.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
