Malawi coach Ng’onamo to stay put at Bullets FC

Malawi national football team caretaker Eddington Ng’onamo has rescinded his decision to quit as Bullets FC coach.

Ng’onamo was recently appointed as the Flames caretaker coach and announced that he would resign as Bullets coach to avoid conflict of interest following his appointment by the Football Association of Malawi (Fam).

The ‘people’s team’ allowed him to leave and concentrate on the national team job.

But unavailability of funds and reports that Fam would engage his services on temporary basis are said to be some of the factors that have forced the caretaker to reserve his decision and stay put at Bullet FC.

Besides, his proposals to have the national team start training Tuesday in preparation for the next month’s 2014 World Cup qualifier against Namibia also hit the snag.

“This is not my last game with Bullets. I am still their coach,” said Ng’onamo last Sunday.

Fam announced that Ng’onamo and his assistants Ernest ‘Livewire’ Mtawali and Patrick ‘General’ Mabedi would be engaged per game and not short term contracts.

The interim panel will only be in charge of the Flames until June, Youth and Sports Minister Enoch Chihana confirmed.
