Former Flames players goalkeeper Swadick Sanudi and defender Clement Kafwafwa have been earmarked for a coaching course in Scotland.
The two players have taken up coaching after graduating from Football Association of Malawi C Licence.
FAM General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda confirmed the development but said there were also some candidates being scrutinised for the course including grassroots football manager Silas Liwindo.
“Right now I cannot say much we are through with the selection process,” Nyirenda said.
“So, yes, Kafwafwa and Sanudi are some of the names that have been recommended by our technical director, to undergo the course.”
But Nyirenda said the association would finalise the selection process next month.
Malawi government and Scotland agreed to forge a partnership in training of football coaches and the two could be the first to benefit from the initiative.
Kafwafwa recently returned from Denmark where he had a professional career spanning over a decade before retiring to take up coaching.
Sanudi rejoined Bullets after returning from South Africa and doubles as player and goalkeeper trainer .
