SOCCER - MANZINI Wanderers Management Committee (MC) Chairman Mlungisi Ndzinisa has made it clear that they were not bothered as they know they have a director.

This comes after Manzini Wanderers Director Cedric Mathata was in the country to meet the club’s management, defusing any panic that the team was falling apart, having released a number of players.

Ndzinisa said even though they had some issues in the team they were not troubled as they knew that at the end of the day they had a director, who supported them throughout.

“On Monday we met with our Director Cedric Mathata where he ensured us that he will continue to support the team. He promised to come back to meet the club’s stakeholders before the start of the new season. We are grateful to him for everything he has done for the team,” he said.

Ndzinisa said Mathata had always supported the team. “Our director has invested so much in the team and we are where we are today because of his contribution.”

Mathata joined the team last season after the unceremonious departure of South African based businessman Mehluli Nhlengetfwa. He assembled a star-studded team under the guidance of late Thabo ‘Koki’ Vilakati before his departure. On another note, Ndzinisa said they had started their preseason training in readiness for the new season.

“We started our pre-season training today and we will be ready for the start of the upcoming season. We will give more updates about the team in due course.” Meanwhile, the maroon and white outfit has discarded nine players including three international players in Jimoh Moses (Nigeria) Siphamandla Dhlamini (South Africa) and Innocent Adja (Ghana).

The others are Siboniso Ndzabandzaba, Lindokuhle Fakudze, Xolani ' Messi' Ngwenya, Pabbalo Yende, Njabulo Magongo and Mhlengi Mngometulu. Ndzinisa confirmed the list last week.
