Walter Nyamilandu : Please do some school.

Speaking during the CAF A Coaching Licensing Course opening ceremony, the former Flames and Mighty Wanderers defender advised his compatriots to never abandon school because gone are the days where things were easier without school.

“It’s always good to hear some of our local coaches speaking good English during interviews. That’s what is needed. When you go outside there, never abandon school because things are moving with time and if they are to achieve more in their careers, school must be top of their priorities.”

“I am also urging players to mix school with their careers as well. Football is a very short term career and if they have school, they will surely survive after hanging up their boots,” he explained.

Some of the notable footballers who have gone further with education are Peter Pindani and Panganani Ndovi but players like Duncan Nyoni of Silver Strikers, Chiku Kanyenda and Diverson Mlozi from Big Bullets and Isaac Kaliyati from Mighty Wanderers are advancing in their education.
