Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan has officially been appointed as Flames Caretaker coach replacing Ernest Mtawali who has been fired by the Football Association of Malawi.
According to a statement released by the FA on Thursday afternoon, both Mtawali and Ramadhan have been shown the exit door on the recommendations from sub-technical committee due to poor performance of the team since taking over from Young Chimodzi last year.
However, Ramadhan will still be at Mpira Village as he has been named the interim coach for Malawi’s formality game against Swaziland on 3rd September.
“The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) hereby informs the general public that its Executive Committee has resolved to recommend to Malawi Government that the employment contracts of the Head Coach, Mr. Enerst Mtawali and his Assistant, Mr. Nsazurwimo Ramadhan should not be renewed upon expiry on 31st July 2016.”
“This decision has been made as a result of poor performance of the Malawi National Football Team over the past year,” reads part of the statement that has been signed by General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda.
On Sunday last week, FAM’s sub-technical committee faulted Mtawali for employing wrong game plans/tactic and alleged biased selection of players and failure to submit technical reports and review matches as well as sidelining his deputy and technical panel members.
The committee then recommended against renewing contracts for the duo who have registered only five victories from 14 matches.
Malawi is yet to register a win in the on-going African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
