The Flames coaching panel has named Moses Chavula as captain.
The announcement was made by head coach Young Chimodzi during a press briefing held at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
He said the Mozambique-based left-back will be deputised by Lucky Malata.
Chimodzi said in choosing the captain, they considered factors like seniority, conduct and influence.
“Moses is one of the most senior and experienced players and he also leads by example in terms of discipline,” said Chimodzi.
Chavula said he was happy to get back the armband.
“I am honoured to be named captain again and I promise to live to expectations,” he said.
This is not the first time that Chavula has been named captain. He took over the armband from Peter Mponda who captained the team for seven years.
But when Eddington Ng’onamo was appointed caretaker coach, he named Joseph Kamwendo as the team’s skipper, but his tenure was short-lived as he was replaced by James Sangala who was appointed by former Belgian coach Tom Saintfiet.
The position became vacant following Sangala’s retirement.
