Malawi Flames Interim coach Mtawali ready for task

Malawi FootballFlames caretaker coach Ernest Mtawali has said he is ready to take over the team after being appointed on Sunday to replace Young Chimodzi and his assistant Jack Chamangwana.

Chimodzi and Chamangwana were sacked after the Flames 2-1 loss to Zimbabwe in the Africa Cup of qualifiers.


Mtawali, sounding confident, said he would get down to business as the players had outstanding players.

‘When you look at the players I am confident that we have good players,’ Mtawali said.

The revered former Flames professional player, who has played in France, Argentina Middle East and South Africa is applauded the association for offering him the chance to take charge of the team.

‘I would like to thank FAM for offering me the chance to coach the team on interim basis,’ Mtawali said.

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) extraordinary executive meeting recommended that the government should not renew Chimodzi and Chamangwana’s contract and instead hire Mtawali on caretaker basis.

The caretaker coach’s immediate assignment is against a friendly game against Uganda on 6 July as part of the activities to commemorate the Independence Day.

Malawi face Swaziland in September in the second Africa Cup of Nations group qualifiers. Swaziland beat group favourites Guinea 2-1 away creating a more challenging task.
