Homesick Kinnah would love to coach Malawi again

Malawi football team and Big Bullets legend Kinnah Phiri is homesick and yearns for a return to coach the national team.

Kinnah: Wants another opportunity to coach Malawi

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) fired Kinnah as Malawi head coach in January 2013 and government redeployed him as regional football officer alongside Young Chimodzi and Jack Chamangwana who were hired again later in 2013.

Kinnha has been in South Africa where last season he rescued Free State Stars from Premier Soccer League’s (PSL) jaws of relegation.

However, the coach has said he would like to have another chance as Malawi tactician where a vacancy has been created after Chimodzi’s dismissal on June 14 2015 following a 2-1 losing start to Zimbabwe in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying race in Group L

“If given an opportunity, I would love to coach the Flames again,” Kinnah is quoted by the local press as saying.

“Staying away from home for a long time is not good for me. I am homesick. With the situation now in the team, it needs people with more experience,” insisted Kinnah.

FAM installed another Malawi legend who had his playing career in South Africa, Ernest Mtawali as an interim gaffer until a substantive coach is appointed.

Some 31 coaches from Africa and abroad have since applied in advance for the Malawi coach job.

Pa dziko lapansi coach is not only kinna phiri. You qualified for Angola 2010 because Ivory Coast fought for your team. In fact Flames did not deserve to qualify for Angola 2010. Let others try their luck.

Ngati munabwereza DPP with mutalika lead the country why not kinna if he is competent . Tell us who can take the position coach if know
