Flames mentor Meck Mwase is yet to fully resume his duties as Flames senior team coach as ministry of sports is still working on extension of his contract.
FAM asked the government to extend Mwase’s contract with three months ahead of the coming assignments. Now director in the ministry of sports Jameson Ndalama told Rainbow TV that they are still working on it.
“The human resource department is still working on the contract and soon will communicate to Football Association of Malawi-FAM,’’ Ndalama said
It has been established that FAM has asked government to extend the contract with three months for him to finish his AFCON qualifiers assignments.
But soccer analyst Kim Kamua says three months is not enough for a national team coach. “I would love if the contract was for at least three years since national teams do not have frequent assignments unlike with clubs,” Kamau told Rainbow
Flames will finish its AFCON qualifiers next month where it is to play against South Sudan on Wednesday 24 march before winding up their campaign at home against Uganda on Monday March 29, 2021.
After AFCON assignments Flames will start World Cup campaign where the team is in group D alongside Mozambique, Ivory Coast and Cameroon.
