Mighty Mukuru Wanderers says they will not let a recent fine derail their concentration in their upcoming fixtures.
The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has slapped the Lali Lubani side with a K2.5 million penalty for gross unsporting conduct displayed by its players during last month’s FDH Bank Cup round of 16-match against Dedza Dynamos at Dedza Stadium.
The Nomads were found guilty of two offences involving its players urinating on the pitch and in the dressing room area owing to juju beliefs.
Reacting to the punishment, Wanderers’ spokesperson, Ernest Maganga, has said they will not appeal the FAM fine for misconduct.
According to the FA, Wanderers are expected to pay K1 million of the fine before their next official fixture.
“The team has a lot to concentrate on and would not want to waste time with an appeal,” Maganga has said.
Meanwhile, FAM has also charged Nyasa Big Bullets Reserves for inciting violence and bringing the game in disrepute.
According to the charge sheet, the incidents occurred during the young Bullets’ recent FDH Cup quarterfinal victory over Blue Eagles at the Kamuzu Stadium.
