Civo calls for crisis meeting over poor performance

Civo United have called for a crisis meeting over the team’s poor run in Malawi’s flagship TNM Super League this season.

The crisis meeting follows their team’s flagging performance under the tutelage of coach Charles Manda who replaced Millias Pofera Jegwa.

Civo United Vice General Secretary Charles Chawawa confirmed the development saying the meeting would be convened as a matter of urgency.

The development comes after the team lost both games in the league to Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on Saturday and the bottom team on the 16 log table Dwangwa United by 2-1 margins.

He said the meeting would involve players, executive committee and coaches.

“We are concerned with the results considering that we thought the change of coaches would turn around the team. We want to find out what is the problem because our performance is good but it doesn’t reflect on results,” Chawawa said.

Manda, who was assistant coach to Meke Mwase at Mbabane Highlanders of Swaziland took over shortly after he was engaged as technical director.

But Manda is yet to win a league game as the team could face relegation despite enjoying good sponsorship from the government in a country where most teams barely survive.

The problem was not Jegwe (the former coach) after all. Its about time local football teams had qualified analytical managers in addition to former players and fanatical supporters on their technical panel. Most decisions are made based on hearsay and emotions.
