With the battle to land this year’s K60 million TNM Super League reaching the climax, Civo United coach ‘Sir’ Alex Masanjala is convinced that if it might not be his side winning this year’s title it might be their local neighbours Silver Strikers who might be crowned champions.
Despite the log table being led by Escom United which has played most games (26) in the league, Masanjala believes the Blantyre-based outfit might not cope with the pressure coming from their heels.
“Of course Escom is at the top but it is only remaining with two games, anything can happen. We have seven more games to play and you can see that these are enough for us to win it if we can win all our remaining games. We can collect possible 58 points and no one can match that,” he said
When asked if he think the title can return to capital city, Masanjala said: “Yes, Civo and Silver have a good chance to win it and it is possible any of us to win this year’s title.”
Masanjala however said his side if facing injuries in his squad that might be the major challenge.
“The injuries in our squad I think will affect us, but that cannot stop us challenging for the title,” he said.
Masanjala has seen three of his most reliable players like Manuel Zoya, John Lanjesi and Joseph Kachule gone under the knife due to injuries.
This year’s title race is a contest for six teams in the race and these are ESCOM United, Silver Strikers, Blantyre United, Mighty Wanderers, EPAC United and Civo United.
