One of the country’s football coaches Miliyasi Pofera Jegwe has congratulated former Bloemfontein Celtic captain John Maduka for being appointed head coach of the club.
On Monday 6 July 2020, Bloemfontein Celtic announced the promotion of the former Amazulu football club player as head coach, who until his promotion was an assistant coach for the club and has replaced Lehlonolono Seema who has joined Chippa United.
According to Jegwa, Maduka’s appointment is an indication that the country has well-talented people who can compete in different countries and gives hope to other coaches in the country.
“First and for most let me congratulate Maduka for being appointed as head coach for Bloemfontein Celtic. This is giving an insight that we have good coaches in the country who can take up the job in other countries. This will also open up doors for other Malawian players to try their luck at the club as he might want to beef up his squad so that the team does better,” said Jegwe.
National coaches association through general secretary Davie Mpima has also wished the former Malawi national football team captain the best of luck in his new challenge.
“We are happy to hear that a Malawian coach has been given such a job in South Africa and that’s what we want as an association for most of our coaches to show their potential in different countries and we wish Maduka all the best,” said Mpima.
John Maduka has been at Bloemfontein Celtic since 2004 and has served on the position of team manager and assistant coach at the club since he retired from active football in 2009.
