Blantyre United coach Leo Mpulula has described the 2014-15 TNM Super League season as the worst experience in his career as a coach.
This follows the confirmation that Blantyre United will not take part in the top flight league next season as they will be relegated.
Blantyre United was forced to a 2-2 draw in a must win game against Mafco on Sunday in to keep alive their survival chances alive.
The loss means that Blantyre United will finish with maximum 25 points if they are to win their remaining two fixtures which will not be enough to dislodge Airborne Rangers currently seating on 12th position.
Speaking in an interview, Mpulula said the current soccer season was characterized by so many challenges the biggest of all being failure to sign new players.
“This has been the worst year in my career as a coach and it has been a painful experience” Mpulula said.
“There were so many challenges but to me, the major problem was that I arrived at a time the transfer window was already closed so I did not have a chance to sign new players. When I came in the team was already struggling and I tried to do whatever I could do with the players we had but we have failed to survive” he said.
The former Azam Tigers mentor has since advised the players to remain committed and perform well in the remaining fixtures to at least attract the attention of other clubs to take them on board.
“This is the time for the players to show that despite being relegated, they are capable of playing and that they are super league materials. There are so many players that do not deserve to play in the lower league” said Mpulula.
“We are out yes but we need to leave a mark and that can be fulfilled in our remaining two games” he said.
Blantyre United struggled in the 2014-15 season after a mass exodus of players last season.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
