FISD Wizards Technical Director Peter Mponda has lashed out at their sponsors for not being honest on the team’s proposal to relocate to Central Region Football Association League after their relegation from Malawi’s top league.
Mponda said he was surprised that they were getting information from the media from sponsors FISD over their proposed relocation.
“We are not happy that we are getting most of information over our relocation to Central Region from our base, the Southern Region,” Mponda said.
“Our sponsors should have engaged with us to exhaustively discuss with us over the issue because we need to look at a number of aspects for us to bounce back into the top league.”
Among others Mponda hinted that FISD Wizards could have a better chance of springing back into Super League if they could stay in the South.
“Our players are used to play in the South and for us to shift to Central Region it would not be easy for them to adapt to the demands of the league,” he said.
FISD Wizzards Chairman Mike Tembo also ruled out the possibility of moving to Central Region as they would need to secure their base.
“We need to have our own base and I don’t think the ground will be ready at the start of the season,” he said.
FISD Wizards were relegated from the top league after offering false promises to survive backed by good management and financial position when it was under UK firm’s Surestream Petroleum before breaking away.
The team also managed to secure a substantial K60 million from FISD after Mponda managed to cut the team from Surestream following a protracted ownership battle after he registered the team in his name while serving as Technical Director for Surestream Academy.
