Azam Tigers head coach Leo Mpulula has strongly attacked Malawian referees accusing them of being incompetent and spoiling the game of football.
The tough talking Mpulula has also declared that there are no good players in the country therefore the Malawi national team will continue to play second fiddle to opponents in the continent.
Mpulula said this after his club was whacked 2-0 by Bullets FC in their opening match of the TNM Super League match played at Balaka Stadium on Monday.
“These referees don’t know anything about football and there is too much favouritism, they favour Bullets. We scored a clear goal but it was ruled out claiming there was an offside” said Mpulula.
“The problem is that these people given the task of officiating games are supporters of some of these teams so they just do what pleases them,” Mpulula added.
He said his team deserved to win against Bullets and revealed he will never “concede” a defeat against Bullets saying: “Bullets is always favoured whenever they play against Azam”.
Bullets accumulated the 3 points courtesy of Ghabadinho Mhango’s brace.
Mpulula also extended his accusations to national team technical panel for selecting a bulk of players from Bullets.
“Bullets players and other players from so called big teams don’t know how to play good football and I don’t see any reason of selecting them to the national team, they know nothing only that they are favoured,” he said.
“There is no class in Malawian players,” he added.
Mpulula was previously sued and taken to task for calling a referee “stupid” but he escaped a punishment after the charges were dropped when he offered an apologyFollow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
