The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) is not willing to extend the contract of national football team coach Ernest Mtawali when it expires in July this year, Nyasa Times understands.
FAM meeting over the weekend analysed the tenure of Mtawali and officials were not impressed.
Mtawali’s record of five wins, six losses and four draws in all competitions is hardly inspiring, the FAM meeting noted.
“Ernest Mtawali’s deal would not be renewed,” a FAM source said.
Malawi National Sports Council, which is responsible for hiring the coach and his remuneration, says it is waiting for FAM to make their position clear on whether they need Mtawali or not.
Mtawali took over the mantle of Malawi national football team in 2015 after FAM sacked Young Chimodzi and his assistant Jack Chamangwana.
Mtawali’s deputy Nswazirimo Ramadan is likely to be installed stand-in coach as the football governing body will advertise for the position of the Malawi national football team head coach.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
