Mzuzu University (Mzuni) vice chancellor Dr. Robert Ridley has said with unprecedented hard work, discipline and camaraderie among the players, Mzuni Football Club (Mzuni FC) has “great potential to be a big team” in Malawi’s top flight TNM Super League.
Ridley said Monday evening at the institution during a symbolic presentation of the Simama Northern Region Football League trophy to Mzuni FC players and supporters, following their win last season.
Mzuni FC were named victors of the league following rivals Kaporo United’s failure to show up for a replay in Dwangwa about two months ago.
Ridley hailed a gathering of excited students, staff and members of the Mzuni Council that he was delighted with the “professionalism” the team posited especially at the heart of their wrangles with Kaporo United.
He hoped Mzuni FC “will remain in the super league.”
Mzuni FC Chairperson Mtungambera Harawa the technical and financial support they were getting from the administration was “unprecedented.”
“We will work towards making sure that we don’t let you down,” said Harawa.
Mzuni Council Chairman Professor Brown Chimphamba, who was guest of honour, said he was “proud of the boys.”
Mzuni drew with Airborne Rangers on Sunday (0-0) at Mzuzu Stadium. It is expected to play Big Bullets in a week or so at the same venue.
