Mzuzu University (Mzuni) FC has extended technical director Kinnah Phiri’s contract for six months.
Mzuni chairperson Albert Harawa told The Nation on Monday that the former Flames mentor has been offered another stay so that he should help the team achieve its goal of finishing the 2016 TNM Super League in the top five.
“We respect the big role Kinnah has played at the club. He fulfilled our expectations and made the team to remain in the Super League. We, therefore, decided to renew his contract that will run for six months.”
Mzuni signed Phiri after he was sacked by South African Premier Soccer League side Free State Stars in August last year.
He was given a two-month contract which expired on December 31 2015.
He guided Mzuni to four wins, including a 3-0 victory over giants Be Forward Wanderers.
The former Flames coach said he has no problem working with Mzuni for some period because the working environment has been conducive.
“The working relationship has been good for the short period I have been with Mzuni. I cannot complain working with them again. I am ready to help the team in the next season,” said Phiri.
Mzuni finished the 2015 Super League season on position 12 with 29 points at par with Dedza Young Soccer but survived the relegation, thanks to a seven-goal difference. n
