The two teams proposed this through their team managers that since they contributed more than three players to flames (who are currently in Namibia for Cosafa), it will be good if all the teams have equal games played.
The two teams disclosed that if the games continue it might give them pressure as psychologically they will be thinking on the points the other teams will collect.
“We will have psychologically effect because if the other teams will play 12 games whereas we have played 7 we will be playing catch up games which is on our disadvantage.
Concurring with Madeira, Nyasa Big Bullets team manager Rahim Ishmael said the games should really be postponed until the end of this month.
“This has been to our disadvantage, every year we contribute players to national team during Cosafa tournament.
“Last season we contributed players and we played four games, of which won two and drew two. This year we have contributed 8 players we are on break for 3 weeks.
“We are asking those in charge of games to look into this because some teams are ahead with three games so for this period the national team is in Namibia the game difference will be big which is hard to catch up,” said Ishmael.
Meanwhile, Football Association of Malawi through its competition manager Gomegzani Zakazaka has responded to the proposal saying that it’s not possible to postpone games.
“The problem is club financials, most of our clubs doesn’t have sponsors they rely on gate collections so if we can postpone the games for three or four weeks, how will these clubs survive?” Asked Zakazaka.
He further said in order to beat the season’s calendar those teams who did not contribute to national team should proceed with the games.
“As you know we do have many grounds so if we postpone all the games we cannot beat the calendar with other competition we have in the country.
Be Forward Wanderers contributed five players whereas Nyasa Big Bullets eight.
