Malawi captain, Moses Chavula has told PRAVDA SPORTS 93.5FM his side was highly impressed with the quality of Black Stars midfielder Christian Atsu in last Saturdayâ€™s 2013 Cup of Nations qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium and has revealed there are plans to assign men to to mark the Portugal based dare-devil in the reverse encounter of this continental assignment in Blantyre next month.
Chavula also blamed his sideâ€™s dirty tackles and cautions in the first leg of the AFCON qualifier on the dazzling skills of the 20-year-old Atsu.
Chavula said, â€śNumber 7 (Atsu) is one best players in the Ghana team. He is very quick and a very good player thatâ€™s why most of the players (Malawi) were committing many fouls after tackling him. We didnâ€™t know him but other big players in the team that is why we were surprised at his performance. Weâ€™re going to plan on how to handle him when we play at home.â€ť
Chavula, a defender of Lebanese Premier League side Nejmeh, believes Malawi must emulate the Black Stars by ensuring experienced players are not retired early from the national team.
