Malawi national football team coach Ronny Van Geneugden (RVG) has attacked the country’s football style saying it is like tennis.

RVG: Attacks Malawi football style

RVG said this after watching the game between Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers, in the Airtel Top 8 Cup quarterfinal on Sunday at Mulanje Park.

The Belgian Malawi national team coach is on a mission of inspecting the country’s football clubs through the Super League and cup games.

However, after watching Sunday’s game, the Flames coach expressed disappointment, especially on the standard and style of play displayed by both teams.

RVG together with his deputy, Gerald Phiri, left the match before it ended, disappointedly citing the poor standard of play.

“I am very disappointed with the kind of football the two clubs are playing here. It is like we are watching tennis, that’s why I have decided to leave the place before the match ended,” said RVG.

According to him, the Nyasa Big Bullets players were playing long balls without any game plan while the Silver Strikers were just frustrating their opponents by unnecessary delaying tactics.

Clubs are yet to issue a comment on the matter, however, some football pundits have described RCG’s behavior and remarks as fortunate.

very true….our football standard is very low and poor…i watched that Game too and was very disappointed too…i think RVG is tue


It’s too early for him to make such comments.


Precisely, we’r very far….

wa ngoni

its undisputed fact that truth pains beyond measure . let us be told the truth coz its the only way we can change our approach.


Just because he has told you the truth then you are saying his comments are and behavior unfortunate. Shameless pundits. RVG is right even Steve Banda said the same during live commentary . The two teams did not inspire


RVG analysis is quiet correct. Do our players La Liga, EPL and other leaques abroad? What about their respective coaching panels? Watching Silver playing Bullets was like watching chikwati football in Mpherembe kikikikiki.
