Thanks but no thanks: Mabedi rebuffs FAM


Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Patrick Mabedi has turned down Football Association of Malawi’s (FAM) offer for him to assist Ronny Van Geneugden at the Malawi national football team.

According to South African magazine Soccer Laduma, the former Flames and Nyasa Big Bullets captain has said he is focusing on his job with the Amakhosi.

Mabedi has turned down FAM’ offer.

The club’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bobby Motaung confirmed the development but did not reveal reasons for Mabedi’s decision to reject the post.

“We also want to express gratitude at the consideration of one of our technical team members being called to serve the country of Malawi.

“We would like to continue cooperating and collaborating with Malawi (in) various areas. We wish the Malawian national team all the best in the upcoming matches,” reads the statement.

Mabedi was recommended by RVG last week to replace Gerald Phiri Senior whose name was missing on the list of coaches that were selected for various posts by the Belgian tactician.




  1. Who can be interested to be associated with this team its the same as to support DPP supporting the flames.kkkkk

  2. FAM ikusowekera mapemphero apadera kuti iyambe kulemekeza ndikukonda ana amene apindulira dziko lawo kudzera mumasewero.

  3. Not just stakes being low, but for the followers of football we can humbly say this FAM has indeed ruined careers of our beloved sons of the soil in the likes of Kinna, Yugo etal. Why should FAM look upon these sons as nonperformers in the eyes of the so called buffoons outside the country? Mxieeeeeeeeeew musandilakwitse ndine Mkulu Wa mpingo

  4. FAM is very useless, good that you have made an extra-ordinary decision rebuff the offer. With FAM many have ruined their Careers….unless Walter Nyamilandu says goodbye to FAM leadership
