Malawi: 'Don't Buy Our Players', Tigers Warn Fellow Clubs

Technical Director for Malawi's top tier club Azam Tigers Robin Alufandika has turned his ire on on fellow league teams that want to sign players from the club to 'leave them alone', saying that will derail their title hopes.

The Kaukau Boys, finished second at the end of the first round of the league and have since been hinting of high flying ambitions to win the league.

Before winding up the first round, the Kanjedza outfit warned holders Big Bullets who are looking forward to defend the tittle to prepare themselves for a tough competition.

Alufandika has been quoted as telling the local media that this season they are not into selling players but they are looking forward to initiate as many players as possible into their squad if they are to keep their dream of first Super League tittle, in ages, alive.

"Leave us alone, our players are not for sale because our target this season is the tittle," said Alufandika.

His side has roped in three players from lower division sides, Owen Mphasi from Green Eagles and Abraham Kamwendo from Blantyre United among the trio. He believes these players have what it takes to inspire his side to Super League glory.

Tigers FC is considered to be one of the player reserves for major Super League sides having supplied a number of players to Mighty Be forward Wanderers. In this regard, too much selling of players has in one way or the other costed them.
