FAM President Walter Nyamilandu:  Kinna is 'just frustrated'

FAM President Walter Nyamilandu: Kinna is ‘just frustrated’

Nyasa Times reported on an interview monitored on local radio in which , Kinnah attacked FAM for its decision to hire an expatriate tactician and defended the local coaches, saying they are not failures but rather it is the FAM leadership which he  described as “a bunch of failures” who have become clueless on how to turn around the Flames’ fortunes.

However, Nyamilandu has hit back at Kinnah, saying his tantrums are coming out of frustration for not being accorded a second chance to guide the Flames  having led it to their second Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon)qualification in 2010.

Nyamilanud pointed out that Kinnah, who is coaching Mbeya FC in Tanzania, is “obviously aggrieved” that he won’t be given a second chance to be head coach for Malawi national team, saying he understands his “frustration.”

According to Nyamilandu, Kinna “ reached his limit” but the association still. have “lots of respect for him” as Malawi soccer legend.

FAM president justified the decision to hire a foreign coach, saying it is amied at building capacity of other local coaches to take over the national team in future from a foreign coach that will be identified.

“The foreign coach will help in grooming the locals, it is not like we have dumped them,” he said.

Bwana Nyamilandu, some of these when they are unfolding you need to be analyzing yourself befor commenting. we need to be looking at how issues are happening. you say Kinnah is frustrated, what would you say over the issue involving Ernest which is at the High Court, don’t you think fingers will still point at you?

Walter ndiwe chizeleza. Leave Kinnah alone. If u cannot see Kinnah’s potential it means u are unfit to govern football in this country.

Foreign coaches my foot. Kwawo anali mu ligi ya pansi pa Chipiku or Simama. Kuno adzatinamize. FAM does not know how to make money. Again remember that this Nyamilandu rigged the previous elections. Tiwone zina inu.

Nyamilandu is indeed very useless!!!!!! Haven’t we ever had foreign Coaches in Malawi? Other than Ted Power, who else achieved anything to point at? You give them much higher salaries and other allowances, listen to them when talk even clear nonsense, you fund the Malawi team on their request, but you deny the Malawian coaches when they ask of the same. It is high time we had our own Malawian Coach. I would rather have a Foreign FAM Administrator than Nyamilandu, but have a Local Coach.
