FAM is set to meet the Flames caretaker coaching panel today (Monday) to discuss their terms of reference.
The team is scheduled to go into camp today ahead of preparations for the forthcoming 2014 World Cup qualifier against Namibia’s Brave Warriors away in Windhoek on March 22.
Caretaker coach Eddington Ng’onamo and his two deputies Ernest Mtawali and Patrick Mabedi, confirmed that they were yet to agree on the terms with Football Association of Malawi (FAM).
However, FAM president Walter Nyamilandu justified the delay to offer the coaching panel its ToRs, saying they were waiting for government’s approval.
Nyamilandu said to that effect, the meeting with the entire coaching panel is set for this morning where the offers will be made.
“We have a meeting with the entire coaching panel on Monday where the issue will be discussed.
“We have just finalised the package with the Malawi National Council of Sports and we do not anticipate any problems at all,” said Nyamilandu.
The coaching panel also includes team manager Charles Manda and team doctor Captain Kondwani Kachipanda.
Mtawali and Mabedi, who arrived in the country yesterday, claimed to have been cleared by their respective employers Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows to work on part-time basis with the Flames.
However, on his part, Mabedi stated that while he has been cleared by his employers, the decision on whether to accept the offer will be determined after today’s meeting with FAM.
Ng’onamo said regardless of the offer, he is ready to take up the challenge.
