Kinnah says life goes on after Stars sacking

Malawi football legend Kinnah Phiri, who was sacked as coach of South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Free State Stars on Friday, has said he was unfairly treated but now focus ahead.

Kinnah: Coming back home

Kinnah claimed he was pressing the club on their failure to fulfil some contractual obligations and also beef up the squad hence the decision to sack him.

But the club has said the decision to sack Kinnah is based on the team’s poor start to the season as they have lost all their three PSL games so far this season.

Kinnah said: “Yes there has been poor results but the they are to blame for the team’s poor showing because they sold some key players and made R4 million [about K172 million] and I asked them to invest the money by buying quality players which we clearly lacked, but they were hesitant and as a result the team could not perform.”

The Malawian mentor said Star were not happy that he was pressing them on” some contractual obligations which they were not fulfilling.”

He also accused the South African club of not treating him fairly considering what he did for them last season by taking the team from the murky waters of relegation to ninth position.<

“When I took over, the team was at the bottom of the table [16th] and we won five straight matches and lost only one to finish on ninth position, but I guess it is one of those things,” he said.

Kinnah now said he is returning home and “life must go on,”

Stars are reported to have replaced Kinnah with German Ernst Middendorp.

Such is life. When one door closes God open another one. I wish Kinna all the best. He can come back home today and help teams like Bullets, for it to continue doing well in the seocnd round of TNM as we all know that Lamadani has left a gap. We have seen what Chimodzi has done by joining Silver again.

Typical of Atumbuka. Akachotsedwa ntchito kudandaula kwambiri eee ife timadedwa eee ife sitilephera. Simungavomereze kuti you didn’t perform as expected. Just accept things and retire. Za mpira zi siilani mafana. Ena ayeseponso.

Your sacking was influenced by BB here @home. So let them employ you. Chisokonezo ku pannel ya BB chafika. Mpata wa noma uwo! Ukuwoneka. Koma tsoka lina ilo la kochi wa Bullets likumutsotsombetsa afta kuluza ndi noma. Aisova yekha alimbenazo.

You did your part Kinnah & you can walk with your shoulders high. They fire you & hire Mazinyo who has failed at any given club he has coached. We will see. The season is just started & honestly speaking Free State Stars has got only average players not good enough to play for the Premier League. All the best & good luck they will call you when they find themselves in quagmire.
