Eagles to look in-house for Msakakuona replacement


Blue Eagles football club has said it will not look outside the club to replace head coach Derklerk Msakakuona. He was marked to take charge of the Malawi under 17 national football team on permanent basis during the interviews he passed earlier this year.

Msakakuona has been coach for the junior flames on temporary basis and guided the under 17 that played in the confederation of southern African football association (COSAFA) junior championship which the country hosted last year.

Speaking in an interview chairman of the police headquarters side Alexander Ngwala said as a club they have not yet started looking for another coach to take charge of the club once Msakakuona leaves and they have hope in the coaches they have to do the good job.

“At blue Eagles football club we usually use Plan A and not Plan B. Right now Msakakuona is still with us and there is no need to look for another coach when he leaves the under 17 job, we will sit down as a club to see who can take the position of head coach,” said Ngwala.

Ngwala also said the club has a good number of coaches who have worked together with Msakakuona at the area 30 based club. They have hope of them performing well even in the absence of him. Eagles has Wilson Chidati as assistant coach with former EPAC football club coach Audro Makonyola as director of sports who the club can consider for the top post.

“He has worked with a  number of good coaches who are still part of the technical panel whom we will consider first to lead the team once Msakakuona leaves the club,” he said.

Msakakuona guided Blue Eagles to winning the Airtel top 8 cup in 2018 when they defeated Nyasa Big Bullets and also won the Bingu Ikhome bonanza.
