Eventually, even coaches and administrators will also have a similar opportunity. Likewise, there will be movement from Japan to Malawi,” said Butao.

  1. Iwe ndi wopusa eti! Kumene kulibe mpira ndi kuti? Have you ever been to japan? Where is yokohama FC? In 2006 japan attended fifa world cup when german hosted the competition, where were you by then? Manchester united also enjoyed the services of park ju nsu a fantasic player in late 2004 from the same country.

  2. Kungopita ku japan kokhako ndi mdalitso wapadera or atati azikangokhala you cant compare Malawi with japan….All the best JK and Wadabwa.. #Manoma.

  3. To Japan where careers end. I hope it wasn’t part of the sponsorship contract to haul our top players just like that. Osman has built a strong team. Now they are dismantling it.
