Mighty Wanderers have swallowed their pride and saluted their traditional arch-rivals Big Bullets for winning the TNM Super League championship.
The Nomads’ general secretary Mike Butao told MBC Radio 2 yesterday that Bullets’ glory meant they have saved the face of football in the Southern Region.
“We congratulate Bullets for winning the championship, they have also done teams from the region proud,” Butao was quoted as saying.
He also said their rivals’ feat has given them a lot of hunger and inspiration that they too can wake up from their deep slumber.
“It is not a secret that we had a terrible season, but we’ll pick ourselves up and hopefully, Bullets’ achievement will inspire us to do better next season,” he said.
The Nomads spokesperson also said changes will be made in the blue side of town as they seek to rejuvenate their team.
Battered and barely recognisable as one of the football powerhouses on the domestic scene, the Nomads had one of their worst runs in history in which they failed to clinch silverware.
They are currently ninth on log standings with 37 points having wound up their games, but they can be overtaken by Kamuzu Barracks who trail them by a point and have a game before they conclude the league.
