Nyasa Big Bullets striker Muhammad Sulumba has won the heart of Malawi national football expatriate coach Ronny Van Geneugden after claiming a double in the team’s 3-1 win over Kamuzu Barracks in the Chifundo Charity Shield.
It was the first public appearance for the Belgian to monitor local football action after signing a 2-year contract with the Flames two weeks ago.
Van Geneugden said Sulumba played to his standards when he was asked his first impression on Malawi football.
“I am impressed with the performance of the players because they are playing passing football,” RVG said.
“I have seen some good players especially the onewho scored the two goals.”
Interestingly the burly striker is likely to lead the frontline for the Malawi national football team as the Flames face Madagascar on Saturday in the Championship of African Nations Cup.
The Belgian coach said during the unveiling that he want a passing game from his players.
“I am not a god of football, but I am here to help you improve on your standard of play that should help us win matches.
“We should always strive to keep possession and play the type of football that you can enjoy and that the fans can enjoy and not play kick-and-rush. I am here to help you improve your careers,” said the Belgian tactician who signed a three-year deal with the Football Association Malawi (FAM).
