Former Malawi national football star Chiza Nyirongo has proposed Football Association of Malawi (Fam) to consider hiring Flames legend Lawrence ‘Lule’ Waya for the job.

Chiza, the former University Football Club (UFC) and MDC United player said Lule had come of age to be handed the national football team coach mantle.

His observation comes after FAM fired coach Young Chimodzi and his assistant Jack Chamangwana after a string of poor results which culminated to the loss 2-1 loss to Zimbabwe  in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

“Why is it that FAM doesn’t want to consider Lawrence Waya aka Teacher for the post of Flames coach?” Chiza said.

He said Waya nicknamed ‘teacher’ had got the experience to turns around the team instead of resorting to recycling the coaches.

“Malawi national team needs new ideas if we are to improve and progress! We have tried all these others and recycled them. Lawrence has B Licence, has tasted professional football, is experienced with Malawian football,  understands local conditions and has contributed to the development of the game through coaching and serving in FAM,”  Chiza said.

Lule, who played for Bullets and Silver Strikers, is regarded as one of the best football players ever, is coach of a football academy in Mzuzu.

He once handled Under-20 national football team while working for FAM as Administration Officer.

But he quit FAM amid controversial circumstances after the executive committee decided to block him from coaching while working for the association.

The Flames wil never go any where 2 make the country proud with the bunch of FAM losers in office. Disband FAM and the take out the whole bunch of losers of the Flames and start afresh just rite from the grassroot. Whether u hire a European, African, Asian or local coach nothing wil be achieved. The only coach is my uncle from Korea by the name of “WIN WON SOON”.

Mourinho is not a good coach, but coaches clubs that are rich and can buy any player he wants on the market.
