Civo Service United coach ‘Sir’ Alex Masanjala has played down reports talk that he may retire.
A lot of people have been saying the Civil servants coach is at the verge of resigning claiming he is getting old.
But Masanjala shrugged off the rumours, saying he was not leaning toward retirement.
Masanjala said he is still physically strong and has a lot to offer to his Civo and entire Malawian players.
“I have not yet thought of retiring. I am strong enough and if you talk of my age, there are coaches who are older than me so I can’t be forced to retire,” said Masanjala.
Masanjala led his club Civo United to a historical moment when the civil servants overcame their city rivals Silver Strikers 1-0 at Civo Stadium to win the 2009-2010 Presidential Cup championship.
In 2010-2011 season, his club finished as Standard Bank cup runners up after they went down to Moyale Barracks 5-4 on post match penalties in the final match played at Mzuzu Stadium.
Yet he said unfinished business remained.
Masanjala says he is now focusing on winning the Presidential Cup but admitted it is going to be tough.
His players, who are currently on off-season holiday, are expected to reconvene first week of March.
