Bulawayo– Flying Stars, a local Christian League Outfit, are unfazed after succumbing to a loss at the hands of perennial rivals, Victory Fellowship at Evelyn grounds yesterday, the team’s gaffer, Evans Madhuku has revealed.
With 2018 winners, Eagle Life and second placed Sangano legends out of the picture, Madhuku reckons this is his year.
Flying Stars finished third in 2018 Christian League competitions.
Speaking after the esteemed match, Madhuku said, “ The top teams in the competition are out this season. Financial constraints are costing our brothers. But with them out of the picture, it makes us the team to watch this season.”
After playing two matches, with one draw and a loss, Madhuku says it will be a blind move to rule them out of the title race.
“Today was a big match with one of the most respected team in the league. We lost. I guess we were succumbing to pitfalls of complacency. We are a good team, and we know it. We will attack the next game tactically because we want to win.”
“I love soccer, and l love my team, I hope they emerge victorious this season ,” Madhuku added.
Flying Stars maintained the first position for the better half of the season and they lost their claim for the top gong at the eleventh hour and they are hopping to change their fortunes this season.
“We want to win. We want to be champions! This year the odds of us winning are higher than those of us losing. We hope to be a better side in the next coming games. We will put up a good fight,” a hopeful and confident Madhuku said.
