Former Malawi national football team Kinnah Phiri has found the going getting tough at his Tanzania top league outfit Mbeya City FC.
The Malawi football legend saw his charges conceding to a fourth defeat from seven games since he took over after losing 3-0 to Majimaji on Saturday.
Under the tutelage of the former Bullets FC Mbeya have recorded two wins over Toto Africans and Stand United, one draw against Tanzania Prison with losses to league leaders Simba, Azam, African Sports and recently Majimaji.
The loss has seen the team dropping down two steps from position nine to 11 on the log table of a 16- team league.
Mbeya City have 24 points from 24 games averaging one point game as they get closer to relegation zone.
After losing to Simba, Kinnah expressed optimism that the team would get to winning ways which has not been the case.
Mbeya City FC recruited the former Bullets player and coach to restore the team to its lost glory of 2014 and 2015 season in which they finished on position three and four respectively.
The Malawian regarded as the best ever in the country’s football history joined Mbeya after inspiring Mzuzu FC to escape relegation from the top league.
He joined Mzuni for the short spell after he was sacked at South Africa top league outfit Free State Stars.
