Flames’ expatriate coach to start in February

Walter Nyamilandu

The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has announced that the Flames’ expatriate coach will start working in February next year.

Speaking to the local media, FAM President Walter Nyamilandu said the new man in charge of the team will be unveiled next year in time for the team’s CHAN participation.

“At the moment, we don’t have to rush because the team will not play games this year but next year in February for the CHAN tournament.”

“As such, the expatriate coach will be unveiled in February next year just before the CHAN games,” he said.

The FA boss announced some weeks ago that the executive committee members resolved to have an expatriate coach because every top local coach has been tried for the Flames’ position hence deciding to switch this time around.

According to the FA, several applicants from Europe, North and South America as well as some from Africa have applied for the Flames’ top position which fell vacant on 1st August 2016 following the firing of Ernest Mtawali and his deputy Nsazurwimo Ramadhan who failed to take the team to the 2017 African Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Malawi finished bottom of Group L with 5 points from six games in the qualification phase.

As if that was not enough, the Flames got knocked out of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers by Tanzania.

The point is our players are unreachable,untrainable,seriously does this mean all those coaches we have had could not do theit work?? N!! Our players are landlocked !!! To our players lets take seriously during training just as we do in class,otherwise its a waste of tome investing in football,ma queens omwewa basi ,nkhonya etc.

  7. Hello friends my name is Zeida Mohammad I was one of those millions of people around the world suffering from HIV/AIDS and and i was healed through the help of DR Abumen I was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 2006, I had no hope and felt useless. All these negative feelings quickly suppressed my body immune system and my body started to deteriorate quickly with physical signs of rapid weight loss, my story began to change for good when i met DR Abumen through a woman’s testimony, he sent me an herbal medicine which i took for some days, after taking the medicine according to doctor’s instruction I went to the hospital to get my blood tested for HIV/AIDS. The doctors were amazed when my first blood test result came back negative. They asked me to go back again for another test, which I did and the result came back negative. The doctors could not believe still,To cut the story short, “DR ABUMEN HERBAL MEDICINE HEALED ME COMPLETELY WITHOUT A TRACE OF THE DEADLY HIV/AIDS VIRUS IN MY BLOOD” am so happy, am sharing this to the world to save some lives, believe me there is a cure, you can contact DR Abumen on his email address [email protected] and you can also call or whatsapp his number which is via +2347085071418.

  8. Yes we need an expatriate Coach to guide the flames. Local coaches has been given enough time to prove themselves put they have completely failed. Malawi has never produced a World class players simply because we tend to undermine good coaches. Our quality of soccer has been compromised because we seem to know more about soccer matters when we dont know anything. Let FAM do what they see will improve our soccer, look at Uganda its one of the teams that has improved greatly because of an expatriate Coach Misho, previously they tried local coaches things were not changing. Let FAM do what is good for Malaw

  12. Ku Malawi kuno kulibe national team. Inatha maplayer ali kuno ndi achingabwe ndi kachasu nasi. Zisiyeni zimenezo zisamatipwetekese mutu. Ngati ndalama mukusowa naxo chochita pitani mzipatala mukathandize amene skuvutikawa

  13. Public reforms should trickle down FAM.Minies at the football adminstrafion body should benefit those that enter the field of play as opposed to fam officials who are employed somewhere else and just patronise football to fatten their pockects.

  14. Zopanda nzeru ngati izo. Ngakhale mutakamutenga Sir Alex Ferguson vice wake nkukhala Wenger mothandizana ndi Zidane kapena Mourhino, Malawi singachite bwino pa mpira. Mukungowononga nazo ndalama zathu za misonkho pazinthu zopanda ntchito. Kodi ndi lamulo kuti dziko liri lonse lidzikhala ndi team ya mpira? Zitsiyeni zimenezo ndalamazo thandidzirani ma Queens osati azibambo owuma miyendo mukumawati ma Flames wa.


  16. Stupid, we don’t have a football team that represent us here in malawi, so stop talking about the flames, our economy isn’t stable nw, so we can’t spend our money on them, Malawi is well known with netball, we can’t complain if we might spend alot of our money in netball because we are enjoying its fruits!

  17. Waste of resources,plough back those funds to the national players to boost their morale.It has been tried it never worked before.FAM be innovative please.No coach enters the field of play.

  18. Mwayi wake Panadol ndi Aspirin sanasiye kupanga and kusasewela kwa Flames pakatipa i hope there is prenty in warehouses kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  19. kodi flames ilipobe??? team iyi ikutithera ndalama kunena mosabisa……olo kutenga Jose or Pep team sizatheka iyi…ma players athu satha mpira onse

  20. Waste of hard earned Malawians tax money. This munthu called Nyamilandu and his co FAM Gaters eisheeee. They job at d just to steal money, right from gate collections to funds from government and sponsorships money. No wonder you denied computerised entry money collection system at our new stadium in Lilongwe
