Football Association of Malawi (FAM) look set to punish Blantyre United for failing to honour the required standard of having a CAF B Licenced Coach at the helm of the club.
According to FAM’s Club Licensing Policy Officer Casper Jangale, United along with Nyasa Big Bullets (NBB) were already served with warnings having suspended their Coaches earlier into the season.
However, according to Jangale, Nyasa Bullets escaped the punishment having reinstated their Burundian tactician Nswazurimo Ramadhan whom they expect to return into work on 2 August.
“Yes, I can confirm that we already gave warnings to both BT United and Bullets regarding the required standards for a super league team. We cannot condone poor results but standards are meant to be followed hence the punishment,” said Jangale.
Asked as to how much United is expected to pay, Jangale was quick to mention the figures which he said is already stipulated in the club licensing rules and regulations booklet.
“BT United is expected to pay about K100 thousand which is according to the Fam club licensing sanctions. We already spoke to Nakoma (BT United owner and Technical Director) about the development and promised to honour the punishment,” Jangale said.
According to FAM’s Club licensing sanctions, every top flight league club ought to be managed by a CAF B Licensed Coach.
United are being managed by former Wanderers youth player Safarao Pompi having parted ways with Leo Mpulula while Elia Kananji is managing Bullets in Ramadhan’s absence.
