Soccer lovers in the country will miss a familiar face on the technical bench for Moyale Barracks Football Club as Collins Nkuna has been relieved of his duties as the club’s head coach.
Nkuna, a former Moyale Barracks player, was head coach for Red Lions in Zomba before he came to take charge of Moyale Barracks, replacing Nicholas Mhango who has been out on peace keeping mission in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Team Manager for Moyale Barracks Football Club, Lieutenant Gerald Kanje, confirmed Nkuna’s fate.
“It is normal in the Malawi Defence Force for an individual to be assigned other duties. Nkuna is a soldier and he has been assigned other duties as a soldier,” said Kanje.
He said Charles Kamanga will take charge of Moyale while the club searches for Nkuna’s replacement.
But in a telephone interview, Nkuna expressed surprise on the issue saying he did not know anything.
“I was on leave. I haven’t been told anything, I am hearing this from you,” remarked Nkuna.
Charles Kamanga was Nkuna’s assistant. He was also assistant coach when Nicholas Mhango was in charge.
Moyale Barracks finished on position 8 under Collins Nkuna in the TNM Super League last season.
