Surestream FC technical director Peter Mponda has resigned, claiming he is surrounded by some people who do not wish him well.
Mponda claims Surestream officials have been forcing him m to do “impossible things” at the club.
The former Flames skipper said he has resigned to protect his reputation.
“Instead of focusing on what to do to make sure the team recuperates from the recent defeats, they are busy trying to frustrate me,” said Mponda.
The team, which also lost 0-1 to Be Forward Wanderers before drawing 2-2 with Red Lions last Sunday, anchors the 15-team log-table with a single point from four games.
Surestream FC made history by becoming the first outfit to make it into the Super League within two seasons of playing competitive football. They won Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) Division One title in 2013 and the Premier League glory the following year
The academy was started and is still sponsored by Surestream Petroleum, a United Kingdom company with interests in Malawi, and now has 150 players in its books from under-10s to under-18s and the senior team. Only four of the academy players have completed school.
It also reaches out to another 7500 players through its mobile academy in Malawi’s northern and central regions, which they visit two or three times a week.
The academy has already produced two full internationals – goalkeeper Bright Munthali and midfielder Ernest Tambe, 17, – who was recently invited for trials at Bloemfontein Celtic.
“I think I have done my part helping the team to reach this stage and it is time for others to take over,” said Mponda.
Surestream Petroleum’s general manager Keith Robinson said he was unaware of Mponda’s resignation.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
