The Malawi national team fired their coach Kinnah Phiri, his assistant Young Chimodzi and technical director Jack Chamangwana soon after the Flames lost 3-1 to Bafana Bafana at Moses Mabhida Stadium on December 22. 

The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) have now looked to former national team players, Ernest Mtawali and Patrick Mabedi, to take over the reigns.  Mtawali, a former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, and former Kaizer Chiefs defender, Mabedi, are currently based in South Africa. 

 

A source in Malawi told the Siya crew that FAM is busy finalising the move that will see the duo take charge of the bench.

 

“I think before the end of this month they should start working because Malawi play Namibia in the World Cup qualifiers in March and they need to have a coach to start training. They have been without a coach since late December. 

 

“They have already approached both Mtawali and Mabedi and it's up to them to confirm," said the source.

 

Asked for comment FAM secretary general Suzgo Nyirenda confirmed that the organisation is talking to the former players . “Yes we are talking to them. They are Malawians and we want them to help their country. We are expecting them here any time now to finalise the details of their job," Nyirenda said. 

 

Meanwhile Mtawali confirmed having received an offer from FAM, however said that nothing has been finalised. "They called me and nothing has been concluded. I will let you know if we finalise the whole deal," the former Bloemfontein Celtic kingpin concluded.
