Football managers has issued a scathing attack on coach Ernest Mtawali, describing him as indiscipline, ignoring advice and drinking beer and sharing cigarettes with players during crucial games among others.
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.
