Ng’ambi: No bad blood with Mtawali

Mtawali left out Ng’ambi from the squad that faced Zimbabwe in the 2017 Caf Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and that will also play at 2016 Cosafa Castle Cup.

But Ng’ambi downplayed the snub saying every coach has goals which they want to achieve.

“Look, I can tell you honestly that a coach has his aims for the national team and if he wants any player, it’s good,” Ng’ambi told “I can’t say he’s wrong to choose so and so because we all want to play for the country.”

He added that the Flames mentor need support and claimed he will be available when he is needed.

“If I’m selected and I’m benched, that’s okay because he has his own reasons to do so, we just need to support him, I think. I have nothing personal against the coach and that’s why I’m always available when he needs me,” said Ng’ambi.

The midfielder however expressed optimism that Mtawali will pick the right players at the Cosafa Cup.

“I just hope the right players play in the Cosafa Cup and make the nation proud,” said Ng’ambi.

Malawi will play Angola on Sunday in their first game at this year’s Cosafa Cup.
