Civil Sporting Club has launched an inquiry to establish the root cause for the teams humiliating defeat over the weekend as they lost 6-0 against Nyasa Big Bullets Football Club at the Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
On Monday the team had a meeting with the technical panel were among other things they said the players did not fully commit themselves to the match as they were seen with Nyasa Big Bullets Officials earlier before the match and it might be that they received something to manipulate the results.
Ronald Chiwawula who is the clubs general secretary said an inquiry has been put in place to find out what really happened.
“We had a meeting on Monday evening between the technical panel and executive committee to find out what really happened for the team to be humiliated like that way where both side explained as to what happened.
“Both sides have sited many reasons which to us look more serious as they are in line with match fixing that’s why we have set a committee to inquire on what really happened “, Chiwawula said.
Chiwawula further said that as a Club they do take good care of their players and didn’t expect their players to even think of doing that.
“It’s a cause of worry to us if they indeed did that as at Civil Sporting Club we are trying as much as possible to take care of the players and that should motivate the players to do much better on the ground as we have given them game bonuses for all the games played, bought the team new pair of boots and given good accommodation that’s why we have set an inquiry to find out if this is really true or just an escape goat from the technical panel”, said Chiwawula.
Over the weekend Civil Sporting Club had a painful outing to the southern region where they returned with no point as they lost 1-0 to Tigers Football Club on Saturday before being humiliated 6-0 by Nyasa Big Bullets on Sunday.
