Mighty Wanderers deputy coach Albert Mpinganjira is proud of his son Victor who made it four consecutive games on the score sheet in netting a brace as Nomads beat Escom United 3-0.
But in a post-match interview after the TNM Super League match at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday, Albert, a Lali Lubani star in his playing days between 1992 and 2005, stressed that his firstborn earns his blue and white jersey.
“I am happy for him. But let me stress that he does not play because he is my son. Only those who work hard in training get selected. I told him that if he wanted to play in Wanderers, then he has to compete with the rest of the players,” said the deputy coach.
Victor has scored eight goals this season for Wanderers who are fifth on the standings with 45 points from 26 games.
“I have always worked hard. Maybe I am scoring more because the tide of luck has turned to me. I love this club and I will continue working hard,” said Victor at the stadium.
Meanwhile, Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda clarified on the absence of the Nomads two senior defenders Moses Chavula and Foster Namwela in Sunday’s game, saying they were preoccupied with personal engagements.
