…replaced by Charles Thom..
Flames caretaker coach Meke Mwase has dropped Silver Strikers goalkeeper Brighton Munthali following a comment he made after he was dropped to the bench during Malawi’s goalless draw away to Eswatini in the round of 2020 Championship of African Nations (Chan) qualifiers.
Munthali took to his Facebook account and blasted Mwase’ led technical panel for dropping him to the bench.
In his post, he claimed that Mwase’s choice of Kakhobwe was due to the fact that he plays for Nyasa Big Bullets.
Munthali’s comment received mixed reactions, with the majority of soccer loving Malawians questioning his level of maturity.
Now, with the Flames set to regroup on Sunday for the return leg, Mwase has dropped the under 23 goalkeeper and replaced him with Charles Thom, who is also his team-mate at Silver Strikers.
Mwase has also recalled Stain Dave, Schumaker Kuwali, Raphael Phiri and Simeon Singa.
