Former Flames Coach ‘Sir’ Alex Masanjala has been admitted at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Malawi’s Commercial Capital Blantyre.
Masanjala sustained a broken leg injury after being hit by a motor vehicle few days ago.
Former Nyasa Big Bullets defender now coach Meke Mwase confirmed the development in an interview with Nyasa Times on Firday after visiting Masanjala who remains one of the most respectable coaches n the domestic scene.
“Yes he is in hospital at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital where he was admitted after being involved in an accident and he had his leg
broken” Mwase said.
Masanjala, who has been jobless for sometime, has been living a destitute life as he has been seen most of the times walking along the streets of Blantyre despite highly contributing to the football development in the country.
He was reportedly missing early this month as he could not been traced by his family members for over five days and had to involve the police to find him.
Apart from coaching the Malawi Under 20 and senior football teams, Masanjala also coached almost all the top teams on the the domestic scene.
In his coaching career, Masanjala coached Nyasa Big Bullets, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers, Silver Strikers, Civo United, Azam Tigers, defunct Escom United and MDC United amd his last job was at Blantyre United.
On Friday, Mwase visited Masanjala alongside other coaches that included Yasin Osman, Patrick Kulemeka, Edingtone Ng’onamo among others.
They are set to make contributions to assist Masanjala.
