After being kicked out of the FISD Challenge Cup, defending champions Mighty Be Forward Wanderers have faulted a tight schedule in the Cup and the TNM Super League for their Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to Moyale Barracks.
Nomads mentor, Yassin ‘Teach’ Osman, had no kind words to the competitions organizers, the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) saying “their planning is not conducive to the condition of players.”
“Just imagine playing three crucial games in four days even FIFA rules stipulate that a player must be accorded 48 hours of resting between the games but this is not the case in Malawi,” said Osman.
Osman added: “our players were affected due to fatigue.”
On the other hand, Moyale Barracks Coach, Nicholas Mhango, said the victory is a great sigh of relief because his side had for a long time suffered a lot in the hands of Beforward Wanderers.
Prior to Tuesday’s match, Moyale Barracks had been humbled three times in a row by the Nomads in Airtel top 8, Carlsberg Cup and the Super League.
