EZULWINI – Mbabane Highlanders should not expect favours from Manzini Wanderers in the field of play.

There will be no holds barred as the hub giants will give their all when they play against the capital side.

This is according to senior member of Wanderers’ Council of Elders, Enoch Dlamini. The former chairman of Wanderers elders made these comments yesterday at the Happy Valley Resort during a joint press conference for the two teams.
Highlanders Managing Director (MD) Chief Ally Kgomongwe had announced at the press briefing that he had found two potential directors for Wanderers and that he would give the Manzini outfit money to pay salaries and sign players.


Kgomongwe said he had an agreement with potential ‘Weslians’ directors to reimburse him when they had sorted out paperwork to come to Eswatini. Meanwhile, this arrangement, the elder said, does not mean that there will be favours for Highlanders in the field of play.
“We appreciate the gesture and some people may think that we will allow Highlanders to win games against us. That is not the case, we will fight and give our all to win in the field of play,” said Dlamini.

He thanked Kgomongwe for carrying out the director recruitment for Wanderers with transparency and said nobody should interfere with the marriage the two teams had.
“This is not a first of its kind, it also happened in South Africa where Kaizer Chiefs’ Motaung approached Orlando Pirates’ Irvin Khoza for assistance,” he said.

He said it was true that they were rivals in football; however, the sport should not create enmity but friendship.
“We are very happy as Manzini Wanderers that finally, we have a director to run the team,” said the elder.
