As the super league of Malawi (sulom) postponed kickoff of the country’s elite league, a number of teams that play in the TNM super league such as Nyasa Big Bullets, Silver Strikers and Be Forward Wanderers adjusted their training plan to indoor for it’s players which has raised questions on the effectiveness of the plan.
President of the republic of Malawi professor Peter Arthur Muthalika declared the nation a state of disaster on 20th of March this year, 24 hours before kick off of the league which made football association of Malawi (FAM) in conjunction with sulom to postpone all football activities in the country as a way to prevent the spread of corona virus.
One of the country’s football coaches Miliyasi Jegwe Pofera who once coached Dedza young soccer and Civil football teams in the super league said the country is way behind in accomplishing all necessary measures needed for players to train indoors.
“Individual training is difficult to be implemented in the country as most of our players don’t have enough and the right equipment to keep themselves in shape while training at home at the same time our teams don’t have the rightful resources to monitor the players while training in their homes. Because of this it is difficult for our players to effectively train indoors which has also made some players opting to play social football as one way of keep themselves in shape as part of individual training,” he said.
In a related development, Silver Strikers football team players Hadji Wali, Stain Davie and Foster Bitoni are being investigated to have taken part in social football in Nchesi Lilongwe and risk being punished by the reserve bank sponsored side as well as football association of Malawi.
