Manyozo said the players take full responsibility of the 5-4 loss in penalties after 1-1 result in 90 minutes and that he is  distraught with himself  for miss in the decisive spot-kick.

“We actually gifted them that goal five  minutes before the end of the game. We had several chances to kill off the game. I can only say sorry on behalf of the players,” said Manyozo.

Manyozo said he was “obviously hurt” by missing a penalty.

Disband this team. No focus, No skill, No fighting spirit, No ambition, No pride. No nothing. Just a bunch of lazy guys with nothing to do cheating us that there are great footballers. How can you lose a game with 5 minutes to go? You mean the coach has no wrist watch to ask the guys to feign injuries? You mean the team failed to hold their opponets with barely 5 minutes to go? Stop thinking that you are a big team . Inu ndi neba are just bunch of failures. That’s why our national cannot win games.

Happy they lost in front of their Patron uyu mumati Head boy wa FAM uyu!
Just imagine;
1. Masters were deliberately given Uniform with fading numbers to distabilise their coordination.
2. Nomads officials forced their way to the VIP delegates greeting the players as a way of intimidation!!

Atolonkhani aklu Malawi muli kuti paja 99% ndinu ma supporters a Head Boy!!
