Football Association of Malawi (FAM) is yet to offer the new Flames interim technical panel contractual terms of reference.
Assistant coaches Ernest Mtawali and Patrick Mabedi confirmed that they were yet to be offered terms.
Mabedi said he needs to get an offer from FAM before he can decide whether to take up the job or stick to his current employment at South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Moroka Swallows where he works as a development team head coach.
“In principle, my employers have said they would not have problems releasing me on temporary basis for national duty because it will be part of my learning process and they, too, stand to benefit, but I need to get a concrete offer from FAM,” said Mabedi.
Mtawali corroborated Mabedi’s claims, saying: “We got the offer letters, but as for the actual terms, we are yet to be communicated to because the president [Walter Nyamilandu] said they were waiting to meet government.”
Nyamilandu said they were waiting for government’s response, having requested the hiring of the interim coaching panel.
“All the coaching panel members are aware of that. Hopefully, by this week, we should hear from government as some officials are away in South Africa,” said Nyamilandu.
The coaching panel is headed by Eddington Ng’onamo and also includes Charles Manda as team manager.
