Be Forward Wanderers technical director Jack Chamangwana has ruled out taking over the club’s coaching job.
This follows Football Association of Malawi’s (FAM) resolution that, starting next season, all Super League coaches must have CAF B Licence.
Elia Kananji, the Nomads’ coach, confirmed in an interview earlier this week that he does not hold the required licence.
However, Chamangwana, according to FAM’s list of qualified coaches, is the only CAF B Licence holder in the Nomads technical panel.
Speaking with The Nation yesterday, he said he would not be willing to take over the coaching mantle if Kananji is relieved of his duties.
The former Flames coach said he would advise Wanderers to appoint a youthful coach with fresh ideas.
“My role in football now is to impart technical knowledge to upcoming coaches. If FAM insists that all coaches without B Licence should no longer coach Super League then it will be good that he is replaced with a youthful coach,” Chamangwana said.
Meanwhile, Wanderers secretary general Mike Butao is pushing FAM to suspend enforcement of the B Licence resolution as the club battles to ensure that Kananji who won them the Carlsberg Cup remains at the club.
Super League of Malawi has also joined those calling for the delay in implementation of the plan which is risking jobs of five coaches.
But National Coaches Association general secretary Benjamin Kumwenda said the change is necessary as it will improve the standard of football.
“We are the ones who made the proposal and we are pleased that it’s being implemented. The best way to go is for the affected clubs to appoint from a list of 56 coaches those having the CAF B Licence,” he said.
