The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has announced that Flames second assistant coach Deklerk Msakakuona will take charge of Malawi Under-17 at the Cosafa Youth Championship in Mauritius next month.
The FA had a meeting on Saturday in Blantyre where Msakakuona was given the top job.
He will be assisted by Peter Mponda, with Enos Chatama coming in as the Team Manager.
The FA has also appointed Hethewin Mkumbaleza as the goalkeeper trainer, with Victor Jobo being named the team’s Physiotherapist.
The team is expected to go into camp very shortly.
At last year’s COSAFA tournament, Malawi grabbed the bronze medal with a deserved 2-0 victory over an improved Kenya in the third-place play-off.
Malawi had beaten the East African guest nation 5-0 in the pool stages but found them a much tougher nut to crack this time round.
They had to wait until the 58th minute to open the scoring when Peter Banda netted his fifth of the competition, making him the leading scorer for the 2016 COSAFA Under-17 Championship.
The Flames doubled their lead with three minutes to go when Francisco Madinga netted to make the win safe.
