Malawi national team head coach Ronny van Geneugden has appealed for patience among football fans as he attempts to rebuild the team.
The Belgian expatriate said this on the sidelines of a donation of a new Multichoice Malawi Explora called NANO in Blantyre.
Geneugden said he in the company of Football Association of Malawi ‘s Technical Director John Kaputa have already began the process of identifying technically gifted players for the Flames.
“I can say that the process of player identification has already began. Last weekend we travelled to Mulanje to watch the Wizards and Silver game. And on Sunday we watched the second half of the match in Zomba (Red Lions against Blantyre United).
“I was really impressed with some quality especially in Mulanje where players could play a passing game. It’s about time and this I guess is not something that can be done in few days. This coming weekend, I will watch more games in Nchalo and Lilongwe and I hope this will be an ongoing process,” said Van Geneugden.
Commenting on the donation, the Flames Coach commended Multichoice Malawi for the Explora which he said will simplify his job of assessing foreign based players particularly those playing in South Africa as their league is mostly broadcast on Supersport channels.
“This has come at the right time. Very soon we will be regrouping for Comoros game and already I had asked FAM to provide me with resources so that I can travel to South Africa and assess the players. But this will ease the job.
“I have already asked FAM to provide me with contact numbers for all our players playing abroad so that I can easily be in touch with them. I hope this is a good development,” said van Geneugden.
In his remarks, Sales and Markerting Manager for Multichoice Malawi Chimwemwe Nyirenda said they felt the need to donate the new Explora to FAM as part of their support towards national cause.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
