Chinese Team Jets In Through KIA, As All Set For The Official Opening Of Bingu Stadium

Chinese Football team, Guazhu Football Club arrives at Kamuzu International Airport, Lilongwe-(c) Abel Ikiloni, Mana (1)

The Chinese football club expected to play against the Malawi National Football team on Thursday arrived in the country through Kamuzu international airport (KIA) in Lilongwe at exactly 12:45 pm.

The football club; known as Guangzhou is a professional football club that plays in the Chinese supper league under license from the Chinese Football Association (CFA) is expected to play against Malawi National team (The Flames) during the official opening of the magnificent Bingu National Stadium (BNS).

Speaking in an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana), Dragan Stojkovic who is the current coach who has been with the team for two years said that despite coming to Malawi to play against the Flames, their priority is not to lose or win but to strengthen the bilateral relationship existing between Malawi and China.

“We are playing technical football whereby we like to dominate play for the entire 90 minutes of the game with our short passing style. Last year our team ended up on sixth position in the super league and that was a good result for the team bearing in mind that we are having young but talented players.

“On our stay in Malawi, we intend to spend 5 days in the country and play only one game. After that, we will go back to China where we will again leave for Australia”  Stojkovic said.

According to the Director of Youth and Sports in the Ministry of Labour, Youth and Manpwer Development, Joseph Mwandidya, people from different backgrounds or nationalities can have their differences, but when it comes to football, all differences are set aside.

“So, this really does cement the relationship between Malawi and china. To all soccer lovers this is the time to come and see our team displaying the art soccer at this state of the art stadium” he said. (By Chikondi Malota and Moses Captain Nyirenda, Lilongwe, January 26, Mana)

    did u not tell us that Malawi will play National team of China to officially mark the opening of the stadium? But now u have invited Guangzhou or what ever u call this team, a team which can’t even win their domestic league and finished sixth domestically to come play our national team. This is really ridiculous. That team could have easily played against Manoma, Bullets, Silver or Kamuzu Barracks. If China have no time to play Malawi as is obviosly the case, FAM should have organised a friendly against a National team from neighbours Zambia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya or South Africa. Not a Club from China to play our National Side just beacause China funded the stadia. This is a big disrespect any way you look at it. There is nothing to hype about for an average Chinese soccer Club to come and play our National team. Imagine Malawi sending a mid table Super League team to go play their National Team in a game to mark the opening of their National Stadium, will they torrerate that? I doubt. Remember its not like playing Man United, Chelsea. Arsenal, Barca, Real Madrid or Bayern. These are world known clubs. But Gounzhou again Malawi national team? What a fart?
