FAM has said although the caretaker coaching panel will only be in charge for three competitive games, targets will still be set for them based on every game.
Eddington Ng’onamo leads the five-member coaching panel that includes his deputies Ernest Mtawali and Patrick Mabedi.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu on Wednesday said: “We’ll outline the details of our expectations when we’ll be unveiling the coaching panel probably next week.”
However, Nyamilandu slightly contradicted the association’s chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda on the future of Mtawali and Mabedi.
While Nyirenda told MBC Radio 2 on Wednesday that the duo will be taken on board to understudy the prospective expatriate coach, Nyamilandu stressed that it will be subject to confirmation after consultations with the executive committee and the technical subcommittee.
“Of course, the inclination is that Ernest and Patrick would be taken on board to understudy the expatriate coach, but we would have to seek advice from the executive committee.
“Let’s cross the bridge when we get there,” said Nyamilandu.
FAM recently announced that the caretaker coaching panel will be in charge for the next three 2014 World Cup qualifiers starting with Namibia’s Brave Warriors in Windhoek on March 22.
The association and government agreed at a recent meeting that the caretaker panel will be paid per game.
