During a news conference at Mpira Village in Blantyre, RVG said he wants a relatively youthful squad because “young players have the quality to make progression.”

RVG said: “Apart from having technical skills, I wanted players that show they are ready for national duty. I want to create a new team with a new style of play every Malawi an should be familiar with.”

Coach thats very good selection. FAM please leave the Coach alone.


Maganizo abwino a Coach koma ngati sapasidwa zofunika monga Mafriendly palibe kusintha.


Yea, yea, yea! Zosewerera mains zithe. We want a Malawian team. Izi za nya, nyo, nyi zitheretu. Deeds not words


FAM is too Tumbukalised!!!


Good choice and good trainer.
Amidst the highly publicized and exaggerated Bullets’ poor form, Sanudi’s charges at Nyasa Big Bullets have conceded 2 goals ONLY in their recent 4 games. 1 apiece against Moyale Barracks and Silver Strikers.
Bullets’ back line was also the best in all competitions last season.

If we want to see good results leave the coach alone. No interference from FAM top officials.
We need fresh legs that can endure 90 minutes in the field. Some players are old and need to play at local levels only.
Thump Up RVG.


@FAM leave the selection of players and coaching to the coach.Your duty will only be cheching the performance of the team and performance appraisal for the coach.
