Mtawali: On the verge of being sacked

In a report issued after Football Association of Malawi  (FAM) meeting over the weekend, Mtawali is also accused of working in isolation, lacking football leadership and managerial skills, fuelling lack of team work.

Other accusations contained in the report include borrowing money from players which recently caused friction between him and two other players, ignoring advice from his assistants, not making match postmortem meetings and failure to do postmorterm reports.

The report has since recommended to the Sports Council, his employers, to fire the coach and replace him with his assistant Burundina  Nswaziromo Ramadhan in acting capacity, saying Ramadhan can be monitored for a period of time after which he can be employed or not depending on his performance.

There was no immediate comment from Mtawali, the former South African based player.

But minister of Sports and Culture Grace Chiumia said the government did not have plans to hire an expatriate coach to replace Mtawali because the government had no money.

She said Mtawali had one month to go before the expiry of his contract after which a decision would be made.

The Malawi National Team has been performing badly.

How many coaches have been fired so far??? so my take is that the problem does not with the coaches but some where else.


Try Nkhotakota boy Lovemore Fazili

@ Issa, koma zampirazi timazitsata bwino? I thought Ramadhan is already hired on local employment terms as Assistant under Mtawali? Komanso his record as a coach is by far better than nthumbidwa mukuzitchulazi baba! Give him a chance. No hard feelings.

Pay your coach well then you will see performance!


Including the assistant should be fired . This is the trend we have been having.


Mwinatu a Coach ankafuna kukongola ndalama kwa Baggio ndiye ankakana!!!!!!!!!!


There is no football in Burundi why should we hire someone from there?????????? Next we try Meke Mwase, Gerald Phiri, Peter Mponda, Lovemore Fazili osati expatriate. After all any coach we hire will be fired in 24 months.


As far as Walter Nyamilandu Is at the helm of FAM no body including Government is willing to assist the Flames and FAM.
Nonse muchoke osati Mtawali Yekha.
