BE Forward Wanderers Team Manager Steve Madeira says his team is not taking today’s encounter with Nyasa Big Bullets lightly, emphasizing that “there is nothing like a friendly playing Bullets”.
The two teams are meeting in a final day of a four-team international club bonanza organised by Nyasa Big Bullets FC which started on Friday last week at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
When asked how it feels to meet their archrivals and how the team is going to approach the game, Madeira said:
“[It] feels good. A good pre season game, a good derby. We are itching for victory to send the message of our 2019 intent. Though we are trying player partnerships and different formations, there is nothing like a friendly playing Bullets. The bragging rights are at stake here we have to win.”
The Team Manager therefore thanked Bullets for organising the bonanza saying it has helped Wanderers players in terms of fitness and international exposure.
“It has benefitted us alot. The young players are getting international exposure and the fitness levels are getting high. These are tough games. Thanks to Bullets Executive for inviting us to participate. We are gaining alot in terms of exposure, fitness and also trying new faces,” he said.
