Manyozo still believe Nomads ‘can overturn’ AS Vita defeat

Be Forward Wanderers vice captain Alfred Manyozo jnr has said the Nomads have not given up on the CAF Champions League despite a “painful” 4-0 drubbing  AS Vita, saying they can turn the table in their match at Bingu National Stadium (BNS) in Lilongwe on February 21.

Alfred Manyozo Jnr: Upbeat on possibilities of turning the tables

Manyozo  said nothing is impossible and insist the battle is still on.

“If we want to make history at this club, we have to turn this tie around,” said Manyozo.

“We were not mature enough in the first leg.We didn’t play badly, but I think we need to be better if we want a good result next week. It is going to be  difficult, but nothing is impossible,” he said.

Wanderers need to win by a five-goal margin at the BNS to sail through to the next round.

Manyozo said it will be a “beautiful challenge” to turn the tables.

Flamboyant  Wanderers team manager Stevie Madeira backed the plan to overturn the tables.

“We look forward to turning the tables. We were humiliated, yes, but it is just the first leg.

“We do not have to feel inferior. We can draw inspiration from Barcelona, who after losing 4-1 to PSG [in a Uefa Champions League match] last year, they turned the tables in the return leg. We just have to be focused,” he said.

Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) side As Vita’s coach Jean-Florent Ikwange Ibenge says it is “wishful thinking” for Wanderers to talk of turning the tables.

Ibenge said he expects the Nomads to come stronger, courtesy of a home-ground advantage, but not shock them by sipping the 4-0 result.

That’s what we call day dreaming Manyozo and ur team manager. You don’t have the quality to overturn the tables.Stop leaving in denial and face reality,you are down and out.For your own information you will also suffer another defeat on Wednesday. The problem is not you,buy our game its not up to standard.

What kind of negativity is this? Don’t be so naive pple neither be guided by hatrage and negativety. Manyozo is right, as a senior player he has to encourage his team mates to fight. Its obvious u hate wanderers but there is nothing wrong in what manyozo said.

The technical team is the root of the first loss. They had all the top 3 strategies.
1) Parking the bus.
2) Delaying / faking injuries.
3) Attacking football
Now Yasin Jack Bob with due respect they have contributed a lot to wanderers but but but like Wenger nothing more to come from them
