Its all about the Malawi national team, the flames firing coaches all the time. Reports reaching our publication, News Watch Reviews shows that the Malawi national team coach, Ernest Mtawali will be relieved of his duties this week.
Football Association of Malawi technical committee met on Saturday to discuss the future of the flames and its technical panel. This meeting was organised to map the way forward for the poor performing team.
The Flames performance in recent years has been poor in all major tournaments. Ernest Mtawali took over the reigns at the national team in July 2015 from the former veteran player Young Chimodzi. Chimodzi was fired in June 2015, after losing to Zimbabwe in AFCON qualifiers match. Mtawali was thought to be the right man to steer the flames to the right direction but the story never changed.
During his tenure as f!Ames coach, the team has lost six games, drawn six and won five games. The flames has become a punching bag in Africa and FAM appointed Mtawali to steer flames to Afcon 2017 which will be hosted in Gabon, but all his efforts have failed.
The flames has been booted out of Afcon after suffering a humiliating defeat from Zimbabwe. They were also participating in Cosafa Castle Cup tournament in Namibia and were booted out by Lesotho.
According to media reports, the flames tactician whose contract ends in August, will be replaced by his assistant coach, Nswazirumo Ramadhan.
