Malawi:Coach Ernest Mtawali desperate for success

Malawi:Coach Ernest Mtawali desperate for success

By Austin Michel Kunsida,


After coming under heavy criticism from soccer analyst and supporters for his decision to sideline experienced foreign based players in favour of young blood, the flames coach has conceded defeat and embarked on a fitness assessment test of players in South Africa and Mozambique.


Enerst had a fall-out with Robert Ng’ambi who could not hide his bitterness after being left on the bench in a game that Malawi drew against Swaziland in the African Cup of Nations competition.


With a double date against Guinea in the same competition looming, Mtawali plans to mend fenses and consult players in the rainbow nation.


Players like Robert Ng’ambi (platinum Stars) ,Gabadinho Mhango (Celtic), Micium Mhone (Jomo Cosmos) Limbikani Mzava (Celtic) are among those to be assesed.

In a related development, Blue Eagles match maker John Banda is on the verge of signing for Jomo Cosmos after convincing Jomo Sono in trials.
