Mtawali sen Mhone back home.

Flames coach Ernest Mtawali’s decision to drop Micium Mhone from Flames Cosafa Cup squad for lack of sportsmanship has been received with mixed reactions by football fans in Malawi.

Flames and Jomo Cosmos winger Micium Mhone was sent home by Mtawali after he refused a handshake with Muhammad Sulumba when he was substituted by his coach during Malawi’s 3-nil defeat to Zimbabwe in the Group L 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday afternoon.

Some football fans have expressed satisfaction with the coach’s decision to drop Mhone for his reaction claiming that the Flames mentor made a right decision as such his decision has to be respected by all the football fanatics in Malawi.

One of the football fanatics who was happy with the Flames mentor’s decision to drop Mhone from his Cosafa cup squad is Andrew Chiwaya.

Micium-Mhone sent packing.

“I don’t have problems with Mtawali’s decision. Micium’s conduct following his substitution was regrettable,” he said.

Noel Amin also concurred with Chiwaya and said Mhone deserved to be dropped for lack of sportsmanship after being substituted by the Flames coach.

However, other fans were not happy with the decision and argued that Mtawali caused Mhone’s reaction when he substituted the player 15 minutes after introducing him.

One football fan, Dingeni Chris Chitekwe, said Mhone is one of the most disciplined members in the team and it was an insult to substitute him just 15 minutes after he came off the bench.

Chitekwe added that Mtawali is a clueless coach and he must be sacked soon after the Cosafa tournament.

Symon Maphang’ombe concurred with Chitekwe and said the Flames mentor should not have dropped a player of Mhone’s calibre.

“Sometimes I don’t understand Malawi national team coaches especially Mtawali why chasing a superhero like Micium?,” he questioned.

Mhone has since been replaced by Mighty Wanderers winger Isaac Kaliyati who is expected to join his teammates in South Africa before connecting to Windhoek where they will play Angola in the competition’s opener on Saturday.

  6. Let Mtawali apologise to the young talent, he should not destroy his future. Its not a must or a FIFA rule that a player should shake hads with his friend when substuited. Mhone was not wrong. It is part of the game- tempers ………

  7. Micium sanapange za aTonga Brandinoh Yamie anapanga zake monga player wina aliyense akapanda kuwonetsa khalidwe coach ndi panel ya discipline amapanga chigamulo. Ngati simudzisata za mpira amafutsa kwanzanu

  10. Flames satana adakodzelapo stidzawnaso zdaptapo zowna,vuto lakeso anyamata akumalaw satana adatlangza mwamsanga njele yamowa dzenje ndiye mmmmmmmmmmm tkuydzalad man

  11. Who is not in line with the mentor,something is wrong.A good prayer must behave.what micium did,was very unfortunate towards football grounds.lets addimit if something is wrong rather than opposing every development our couch done.these are some reasons made our national team fails all the tyme.

  12. Eeeee Mtawali koma chamba adamuuza ndani kuti alowetse Mhone then in just 15minuts he was also substuted.It mean n shows that Mr jahman Mtawali he don’t know what he is doing. If your a coach u always called up the player’s thatvu know they will combain well in the feild. Mtawali show us what u waz giving n showing us on ur playing days that not what what u r doing now. Kinnah must b given another chance n Malawi will c the change bt all in all Nyamilandu must be fired too he is the one who’s coding this.

  13. coach wa nzeru, izi ndizomwe makolo ena amanenedwa ndi ana awo kuti dad ndiopusa . iwe phee just bcoz mwana amakhonza No.1 or 2. No no no displine ndiyofunika pa ntchito iyitu musaiwale ndintchito yawo ,ma coach ndi mabwana awotu! wakeup [email protected]!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Mhone analakwitsa and this punishment is not even enough, taonapo even ku England ku Man City Zabaleta defender wakutha anampatsa 6 last games osasewera nkumpatsa mwai Sagna. same mistake ku la liga ma players chikhalidwe chonyasa anapangachi anasiilatu kupanga bravo Fam. He must not think he is above flames ai kunali ma players oposa iye. CJ John Banda anamtulutsa koma sanapange zomwe Mhone anapangazi ngakhale iyenso zinamuwawa! kulibwanji ma players athuwa akanamasewera ku England ndi khalalidwe la chonchi?

  15. Khalidwe kanekuti Nkhalidwe ndiofunikila kuposa Luso lamunthu. The problem with African players is that when they play international they feel that even if they misbehaves coach will still be praising them.

  16. To drop mhone or not amalawi tivomeleze kuti m’pira udatikana m’paka ziko lapasi lidzatha ngakhale ku world cup sitidzasewela kuno koma mowa dzenje basi nde # 1.

  17. Mhone analakwitsa koma akanayenekera kukhalanaye pansi a committee fukwa kumuthamangitsaku tiyembekedzere ma results omwewa ku cosafa

  18. what mhone did was unacceptable…ofcourse it was annoying to just play for 15 min but he had to admit that that wasnt his day…he was not at his best…it also happened in swaziland with kaliat and kaliat it was 7 min but he respected coach’s decision..so he was supposed to do the same…so i cant blame the coach for what he has done…coach is the boss them players have to respect…not the other way round
