Flames assistant coaches Ernest ‘Wire’ Mtawali and Patrick ‘General’ Mabedi were among 27 coaches who attained an A licence coaching licence in Hennef, Germany.
The three-week coaching course that ended at the weekend was jointly organised by the Germany Football Association, Germany Foreign Office and Fifa. It was administered by four highly qualified instructors.
Mtawali and Mabedi said they were happy to have successfully completed the intensive coaching course.
“It was an in-depth coaching course that covered various modern football techniques such as football methodology, systems, tactics and philosophy and we have learnt quite a lot. We will impart the knowledge gained from the course to fellow local coaches.
Mtawali and Mabedi also said the knowledge they gained will help in Flames ambitious dream to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.
“It is not all about attaining the papers, the crucial aspect is executing what one has learnt from the course to perfection for the benefit of our game,” said Mtawali.
Mtawali and Mabedi have added a cap to their feather as they also hold B licences which they obtained from England and Germany respectively.
