Mzuni FC future in limbo: Management wants team of students only

The future of Mzuzu University Football Club popularly called Mzuni FC hangs in the balance following a directive by Mzuzu University management that only students at the  institution  are from next season the only one’s eligible to feature in the team.

Nyasa Times understands that the management do not want non-students to continue playing in the team because among other things they have been enjoying some benefits such as free school meals meant for students.

Mzuni FC have been impressive in the league and mostly with support from outsiders.

The team finished on position eight last  season in the elite TNM Super League and will for the first time take part in the prestigious Airtel Top 8 Cup.

Nyasa Times can reveal that out-of the current entire Mzuni FC squad, only six players are students from the university while the rest are from within the township.

Out of the six, only three are the ones who make it into the first team.

Meanwhile, the University management and the club management are still holding dialogue over the matter.

I fully support the position of the Management. Don’t be misguided by the so-called Football analysts who backs the inclusion of the outsiders. Some of them have questionable background . They have untold stories ranging from dubiously selling players.
Our football standards have gone down because we fail to utilize the education setup. Long time ago in those days we used to have untapped talent from the Universities.
Mzuni have abundant talent. Leave them to run the show.
