Kinnah rules out Malawi team return

Kinnah Phiri has dismisses possibilities to return coach of Malawi national football team after he was unceremoniously fired in March this year.

The football legend , who was fired alongside his deputy Young Chimodzi and Technical Director Jack Chamangwana said the solution to the team’s never ending woes was  not to remove them .

He was reacting in the wake of a number of applications the Football Association of Malawi (Fam) has received even before the position is advertised.

“I am not interested to coach the national team because of how I was removed,” Kinnah said.

Kinnah: No return

“I asked for the football authorities to consider a meeting over the team’s poor performance but instead of doing that they decided to fire me and my colleagues Young Chimodzi and Jack Chamangwana,” Kinnah said.

The down-to-earth coach said lack of financial, material and moral support to the national team would be a stumbling block to any coach who could in charge.

“The problem is the national team is not given adequate support which makes it difficult for a coach to plan properly,” he said.

Kinnah was replaced by former Bullets head coach Edington Ng’onamo, South Africa based Flames legends Patrick Mabedi and Ernest Mtawali.

Ng’onamo’s reign did not impress forcing Fam to engage expatriate coach Tom Santifiet of Belgium in a move which was highly criticized.

Kinnah took the Flames to the second Africa Cup of Nations Finals in Angola 2010 since 1984.

He also coached South Africa top league Free State Stars where he made his name.
