FAM technical subcommittee last night unanimously recommended that coach Ronny van Geneugden’s contract should not be renewed.
A source who was part of the meeting which lasted over four hours, said the committee felt that under RVG, the results were disappointing, citing two wins from 21 matches as one of the worst records.
“The members’ view was that a coach is judged by results,” he said.
FAM executive committee is supposed to meet today in Salima to, among other things, discuss the technical sub committee’s recommendation.
Meanwhile, the source also told Weekend Nation that there are plans by a section of the executive committee to propose RVG for the post of director of football.
“There is a plan to recommend
him for the role of director of football to concentrate on development and overseeing all national teams.
“However, the challenge will be to convince the executive committee on how different his role will be to that of the technical director [TD],” he said.
However, FAM president Walter Nyamilandu yesterday said he was not aware of such a proposal.
“Not to my knowledge,” he said in a brief response.
But RVG said he had also heard about it from the grapevine.
“I have also heard about it as a rumour, so I cannot say anything on that,” he said.
RVG’s two-year contract expired on Monday and during his tenure, the Flames played 21 games, winning only two, losing eight and drawing 11.
He, however, insists that he was not in charge of the first two games which the Flames lost 1-0 to Madagascar and drew 0-0 against Kenya.
The Belgian tactician also claims to have “made strong football development for Malawi football, including coming up with a strategy and philosophy as well as building a new team”.
Apart from tabling RVG’s future, today’s executive meeting will also discuss matters arising from previous executive committee meeting, financial report and reports from commercial and marketing, competitions, Football Players Association, technical and youth and administrative matters
