Walter enticing Wenger to conduct assessment of Malawi football

Nyamilandu met the former English Premiership side Arsenal in Doha, Qatar where he is attending the FIFA Club World Cup where he also had a chance to rub shoulders with David Beckham, the former captain for England and Manchester United.

Nyamilandu said it was the meeting was specially arranged for Malawi but that they were just socializing before the matches at the lounge of the Khalifa Stadium.

“My discussions have been taking place with FIFA Technical Team to help us introduce an ideal Football Philosophy for Malawi.

“I took advantage of the trip to follow up on this matter having initiated this conversation with them last year,” he said.

With Beckham, he said they just cracked jokes: “He is a very cheerful person.”

He also said he met with FIFA president Gianni Infantino and assured him that he will come to Malawi next year.

“He said that it was unfortunate that he failed to make it last time due to challenges with the runway at Chileka Airport and he promised that he will make good of his pledge.

“He is very much committed including his entire team. As far as they are concerned, they have unfinished business in Malawi and they are excited about the prospect of coming to Malawi,” he said.

The Frenchman Wenger was the manager of Arsenal from 1996 to 2018, where he was the longest-serving and most successful in the club’s history.

His contribution to English football through changes to scouting, players’ training, and diet regimens revitalised Arsenal and aided the globalisation of the sport in the 21st century, as according to his resume online.

After he stepped down as Arsenal manager, FIFA roped him in to head its technical team.

Malawi football winning philosophy is embedded in the former players,officials and administrators of teams of 1975,79 through 1988.
And if Malawi was to do well,Malawi has to dig its soul and respect from this story

Just get your allowances…. you have failed to develop football in Malawi because of selfishness. You think Wenger can be going round assessing countries’ football styles?
