Tigers coach at ease despite dropping to relegation zone

Mighty Tigers FC in Malawi

Tigers Fc coach, Trevor Kajawa has said it is too early to start judging the team based on first round performance in the TNM Super League.

The Blantyre-based side seems it is no longer a formidable force as was the case in the past as they are now among the three bottom-placed teams on the league log table.

Over the weekend, the team travelled to the Northern Region where they returned empty handed having lost all the two games.

They lost 3-0 to Karonga United on Saturday, before suffering another defeat 2-1 against Chitipa United.

The Kaukau boys have now played 13 games in the first round of the league, and have managed only two wins, three draws and eight defeats.

In his reaction, Kajawa said the league is a marathon and his team stands a chance to return to winning ways.

“We have struggled in the first round, but that does not mean we are a bad side, we have tried our best and we still do. We just have to sit down and devise a new plan for the second round. We still have more games ahead and we believe we can turn the situation round,” he said.

For a long time, Tigers has been like a nursery for shaping and nurturing players who later shine with big teams.

Yamikani Chester, Peter Kasonga, Stanley Sanudi, George Nyirenda and others are some of them.

After a poor start in the league, the team fired coach Rodgers Yasini to replace him with Kajawa.

The team has been struggling financially since they do not have sponsors after parting ways with AZAM.
