Meke has earned his contract as Malawi coach, says FAM president Walter

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu has  said  Flames coach Meke Mwase has earned himself a long-term deal for guiding Malawi national football team to qualify for Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals within a year.

Flames seal Afcon qualification

Nyamilandu said this after Malawi’s 1-0 victory over Uganda at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

This was the last game for Mwase to be in charge of the Flames as he was out of contract.

The  coach, who shed tears of joy  after qualifications, saying he expects FAM will give him a contract.

“It is up to the employers to decide,” he said.

But Nyamilandu was quick to say it is no brainer that Mwase deserve a contract on a long-term.

He said: “The man is a hero. The last time we went to Afcon finals [in 2010] it was under a local coach Kinnah Phiri.

“We brought expatriate coaches, but they never delivered. It has taken Meck to achieve this feat within a year.”

Nyamilandu continued: “We will be very stupid to let him go. He has earned his contract.”

Malawi  on the trip to Cameroon for the tournament has joined  Zimbabwe, Comoros from the Cosafa region while South Africa, Zambia and Mozambique  have missed out.

I personally don’t see any improvement in the style of play. This team has really qualified for AFCON but that must not mean it has improved. Mwati chabe iwu. Uganda sinalibwino ndipo flames anakakhala team yabwino inakawina with even more than 4 goals. Tisapusitsanepo apa. If u follow football u will agree with me that Flames is going to participate and not to compete and they Nyamirandu himself knows this well. It’s painful to speak the truth but sometimes we must guide one another. We can’t even expect this team to improve. Let’s develop an under 15 side in each… Read more »

In 1984 it was Henry Moyo, in 2010 It was Kinnah Phiri and this time it is Mwase. All local coaches. Ndiye tidzamvetso kuti you are hiring foreign coach, sitizagwirizana

A Malawi kuchulutsa kugomera zinthu zisanapse. Our football has gone backwards last 30 years. We used to beat all these teams without a hassle – Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Mali. Our peers were Cameroon, Tunisia, RSA, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco. Do you even remember we beat Egypt in All Africa Games in Kenya and the Egyptians went on rampage destroying property? And that was even without professional players. The poor quality of our national team can be attributed to the drop in standards of our club football, which used to have an identity and system. We could hold the ball,… Read more »

U follow sports not these other so called patriotic Malawians aging cheap politics of football.

We must bring an international coach with a name and give him under 15 or 20 to develop players for a longer period

Our quality of football is too low

mgwirizano wa nyamilandu ndi meke mwase ulibwino. meke mwase new contract and for nyamilandu what shall we give him? I say lets give another term as president so that he continues to raise the bar. FDH as flames partner should also commended, fdh is there even when flames lose. ma sponsor ena aja amapanga pledge with conditions that flames must win whereas fdh gives to help the team meet its needs. meke/nyamilandu/fdh woyeeeeeeeeeeee
