MBABANE - “It has been two years now trying to avoid relegation, even last year it was the same story i cannot fight it twice.”

These were the words of hub giants Manzini Wanderers Head Coach Nyanga ‘Crooks’ Hlophe during the MTN Premier League pre-match held yesterday at Sigwaca House. The Weslians gaffer made these utterances ahead of their last premier league clash against Denver Sundowns.

“As Wanderers team, we need to be united if we want to reap good results. I believe all the players are tools and, therefore, should be taken good care of so that they stay motivated and happy during training. Going to this game, the boys should put in their last efforts. What consoles me in all the challenges that Wanderers has is that whenever their payments are delayed my payment is also delayed meaning that whenever they are hungry I am also hungry,” Hlophe said.

He further mentioned that though they were in the danger zone he believed that they had a chance to survive even though some match officials made unacceptable statements that his team was already relegated. “We are quite aware of the challenges that we are facing as a club, but I was so shocked by one of the referees last week when he said the Wanderers page is already closed at the premier league. How are we relegated even before we have played our last 90 minutes?  I was not happy with his words and I never took that to heart, just that it was not appropriate coming from a referee,” he said.

Meanwhile, Denver Sundowns Head Coach Musa Manyatsi said they would fight until the end and believes they would not be relegated. “We will not be relegated; we still have this one game to turn things around. We still stand a 50/50 chance based on the outcome of the results, that the other teams will get,” Manyatsi said.
The two teams shall lock horns this coming Sunday at Somhlolo National Stadium at 1pm.
