Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has set a minimum qualification of Caf B Licence as a minimum qualification for all top flight TNM Super League coaches.
Fam General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda said this will help to improve the quality standards of football as players will be drilled with well qualified coaches.
According to Nyirenda, he expects all clubs to abide to the new development.
“We want to implement what we agreed,” said Nyirenda.
If the bill comes to pass, several clubs including Carlsberg Cup holders Mighty Be Forward Wanderers will be affected since their head Coach Elia Kananji do not possess the required paper.
Reacting to the news, Wanderers General Secretary Mike Butao welcomed the idea of ensuring that coaches should be qualified but blamed FAM for rushing into implementing the programme.
Butao believes this is part of club licensing but appealed to FAM to consider implementing some of its activities in phases as the world soccer governing body Fifa allows such.
But FAM has stood to its ground and according to Fam General Secretary; the next coming soccer season will only accommodate coaches with a minimum qualification of Caf B licence.
