Former Tigers seeking help for coach Masanjala

Former Tigers  FC players led by Fundi Akidu are doing all they can to get assistance from well-wishers to help former coach Alex Masanjala who is ill.

Ailing Masanjala

Masanjala who once took charge of Silver Strikers, Civo Service United, Admarc Tigers and Malawi National Football Team is sick at his home in Machinjiri, Blantyre.

Fundi Akidu says Malawians have heard about the situation in which Mr Masanjala is in and is hopeful that they will help towards Masanjala’s medical care.

Some individuals and supporters have since pledged to render assistance on the same.

“As former Admarc Tigers players under coach Masanjala, we found it necessary to do all we can to have him assisted.

“We are hopeful that Malawians have gotten the message and that they will come forth to help this cause. Our aim is to have him taken care of while he is alive and not buying him an expensive coffin when he dies,” explained Akidu.

Wife to  Masanjala told Nyasa Times that people are calling her time and again to confirm their assistance.

“It all springs back to 2017 when he went missing for some three days only to be found seriously injured at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital. We still don’t know who actually injured him that time.

“Right now he seems to have lost his memory and he complains of painful limbs. I am glad that people have remembered him and some are calling to see how they can help. We hope to seek more medical attention for him when enough funds are realized,” she explained to Nyasa Times.

Fundi, organize yourselves by forming a task force to look into it that all assistance is channeled there and prudently utilized. Trustworthy people should be put together in that taskforce, open an account, manage it and report every aspect of it to the public. You will see amazing support.

This is a very brilliant idea. But trustworthy people are hard to come by these days. Why not use their account – Masanjala family, rather than invent the wheel. It’s obvious he needs help now. I stand corrected.

There is no way to contact the wife of Masanjala or how to donate even if one wants to help. We want to help. Can someone please give us the phone number of Mrs Masanjala?

FAM, please help this man. Otherwise that’s why you hear players fixing matches. Because its better to fix a match, get 10 million Kwacha and start a business that will help you in future, Rather than playing for the country and benefit nothing.

Football is a career but not in malawi unless you are a foreigner to not know the predicament football players go through here in malawi. Look at what is happening at wanderers. How do you save when you are not being paid your salary? Football monies is peanuts here in malawi. The same applies to coaches. By the way Masanjala was a revered football couch. He has produced some of the finest footballers on the land. He deserves to be assisted by the mother body. For the other players i think there are not sick now. When the need arises… Read more »

If that’s the case, then it is time to call a spade a spade, there is no professional football in Malawi. How many times have we seen players in such situations on here? It is only people working at FAM who makes a living out of football.
