Malawi’s top league side Chikwawa United have roped in trainer Trevor Kajawa in their desperate attempt to save the team from relegation.
Kajawa got down to business this week and he was on the coaching panel during the team’s crashing 4-1 defeat to hot title contenders Bullets at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Saturday.
He confirmed the development saying he was called to help the team as he has been doing with other teams.
“I am just helping the team because that’s what I have been doing. I also done that for teams such as Mighty Wanderers,” Kajawa said.
The former Sammy’s United coach, well known for youth football coaching, has come in to replace former Silver Strikers and Civo United Thom Mkorongo who has stepped down.
Kajawa started his role on unwelcome note after Chikwawa, who held Bullets to a one-all draw in the first round, lost 4-1 at Kamuzu Stadium.
He has five games to save the team as the team plunge deep into the troubles waters of relegation having collected 16 points from 23 games with four wins four draws and the rest losses.
Kajawa has joined coach Willie Khonje who said in post match interview against Bullets that survival was possible should they tread carefully their five remaining games.
“We can still survive. We will target to win the the four home games,” a dejected coach said.
Chikwawa are in the relegation zone with Blantyre United who have 13 points from 22 games, fellow rookies Karonga who have 16 points and also Kamuzu Barracks.
