Newly-appointed women’s football team coach Stuart Mbolembole is yet to get an offer letter.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) executive committee meeting held in Mzuzu on October 29 this year named Mbolembole to replace Thom Mkorongo.
Mbolembole confirmed that he was yet to report for duties barely a month before the team plays Botswana in a friendly match on December 10 this year.
Mbolembole was thus unable to comment on the international friendly.
He said: “It will be difficult for me to comment on the friendly match against Botswana because I am yet to receive my offer letter on my appointment as the team’s coach. It will be good to comment once I receive the offer letter.”
National Women Football Association (NWFA) chairperson Severia Chalira said FAM secretariat was in a better position to comment on the delays.
FAM general secretary Suzgo Nyirenda said the coach will get the letter soon.
“The good thing is that, I met him and we discussed a number of issues pertaining to the team’s preparations for the friendly game we have against Botswana,” he said. n
