Mighty Wanderers FC have hit back at Big Bullets for insinuating that the violence that occurred after BBâ€™s Carlsberg Cup match against Super Eagles in Mzuzu was a result of the on-going contest for Carlsberg Malawi sponsorship involving the two teams.
Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire said the violence was an act of sabotage from certain quarters who do not wish them well in the race for the sponsorship.
Mkandawire also alleged that they are reliably informed that the violence was orchestrated by fans who wore white and blue colours.
But the Nomads general secretary David Kanyenda described Bulletsâ€™ claims as a â€œload of rubbishâ€.
Kanyenda wondered why Bullets apologised if they were not in the wrong.
â€œWhy has he apologised if the violence had nothing to do with BB? An apology is an admission of guilt and they [Bullets] must be punished severely for dragging third parties instead of showing remorse and contrition.
â€œThe allegation is wild and cheap! It falls beneath logic and is devoid of any sense. Nomads fans did not attend the match and to link the sponsorship race to the violence is very unfortunate,â€ said Kanyenda.
FAM was on Wednesday expected to reveal its findings on the violence.
