Malawi National Coaches Association has warned its members against irresponsible and insulting remarks agaist fellow coaches as well as towards the referees and organisers of tournaments.
The warning comes amid increasing tendency of coaches attacking referees during post match interviews.
National Coaches Association Senior Officials Aubrey Nankhuni confirmed his body is equally unhappy with the behaviour of some of its members who always push the blame and insults on others when things go against their favour.
Nankhuni said such coaches will be summoned for disciplinary hearing.
He also revealed that his association will be holding meetings with its members to give them guidelines on how best to conduct themselves while in their line of duty
. Meanwhile, Nankhuni has strongly condemned the action and speech of Nyasa Big Bullets coach Nsazurwimo Ramadhan towards the referee who officiated the Airtel Top 8 second leg quarter final match against Silver Strikers at Mulanje Park and Malawi FA who are the organisers of the competition.
Ramadhan heavily attacked the referee in an interview after the match describing him as incompetent and ineligible to handle such a high profile match.
He nfurther dressed down Malawi FA for what he called ‘very poor organisation’ for among other things failing to provide a first aid team at the venue including an emergency ambulance.
“We are strongly condemning the behaviour of Nyasa Big Bullets Coach Ramadhan who overreacted after their last weekend Airtel Top 8 Cup. We always need to respect the referees and organisers of the competitions” said Nankhuni.
But Bullets General Secretary Albert Chigoga backed Ramadhan in an interview with a local radio saying he did nothing wrong to blame the FA and referee on their weaknesses.
Ramadhan was sent off during the match for protesting a referees decision and shouted at some of the officials on duty.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
