SUPER League entrants Mufulira Wanderers coach Justine Chinama says his team’s focus is to remain afloat in the 2019 MTN/FAZ season.
Chinama said his team belongs to elite football and would work hard to avoid relegation.
On Sunday, Wanderers opened the 2019 transitional league campaign with a 3-0 win against Prison Leopards.
Mighty, as they are fondly known, registered the biggest win on the opening day of the 2019 transitional league.
“It was a good win, coming to premier division starting with a win was a great work from the boys and I think it will act as a stepping stone. We have only nine games in the first round so starting with a win is good and taking us somewhere,” Chinama said.
“Our aim this time around is to remain in the premier league. For now that’s our aim, just to remain in premier league. If we can go past staying in premier division, apart from other success, that will be a bonus. We don’t belong to Division One. This [Super League] is where we belong. We will work hard so that we maintain our presence in the premier division.”
Chinama was optimistic that his current team was equal to the task ahead.
“I think we have assembled a good team. I can confidently say we have a team that can withstand the pressure in Super League. Our aim is to remain in super division, so any position that will not take us to Division One is good enough for us,” said Chinama.
