Mighty Wanderers’ mind games continue with their general secretary David Kanyenda challenging that Big Bullets’ scoring machine, Gabadinho Mhango, cannot score against the Nomads.
“I hope this time, Bullets will stand up to be counted and give us a good game. Do you know that Gaba has never scored against Nomads? I think we will beat them two nil. I saw it in my dream,” Kanyenda said on Tuesday.
He then faulted Bullets for watering down the Blantyre derby due to their failure to win competitive games in the last two years.
“They only win bonanzas or friendlies. Maybe we should play the derby against Blantyre United. They also wear red and they can beat us sometimes,” he said.
Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire was not readily available for comment yesterday, but chief supporter Geoffrey Mbalati described Nomads’ talk on Gabadinho as mere mind games.
“What we know is that come rain, come sunshine, we will bag the three points. The mere fact that they are mentioning Gaba means that they fear him and he could destroy them if they are not careful,” said Mbalati.
Bullets captain Fischer Kondowe said Bullets are not a one-man team like Wanderers who were afraid to fulfil last weekend’s game in the absence of some of their players on Flames duty in South Africa [Joseph Kamwendo, Moses Chavula and Foster Namwela].
“Bullets are not a one-man team. They have never been. That is why in the absence of Gaba, we got down to work and fulfilled our fixtures without excuses,” said Kondowe.
Last week, Wanderers argued that in line with Fifa rules, the Flames game against Bafana Bafana was not on Fifa calendar; hence, the Nomads were not mandated to release the three players.
