“Let them consider COVID-19 impact,” says Mwase


Malawi national football team coach Meke Mwase want his employers to consider the impact of the coronavirus pandemic when reviewing his contract.

The former TN Stars football club coach was given a year’s contract by the ministry of sports, youth and culture in collaboration with his workplace Football Association of Malawi (FAM) in March 2020 which runs until February 2021.

With football games suspended all over the world since March this year due to COVID-19, which saw the suspension of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) and world cup qualifiers which the flames were expected to take part in.

Mwase says he would love issues to do with his contract to be dealt with in good time so that he knows whether he will still be in charge of the team and plan accordingly, once the qualifiers start, it will be a busy fixture.

“I would like my employers to consider the time we have spent without playing football when reviewing my contract as the time spent without playing football was part of the contract. Most of our job is to perform on the ground. I will still wait for my employers on the way forward but I need to be told in good time so that I prepare well for the coming fixtures but it would be nice if I would continue as head coach for the flames in the AFCON and World Cup qualifiers,” he said.

Mwase took charge of the Malawi national football team on an interim basis in April 2019 after FAM decided not to renew the contract of Belgian tactician Ronny Van Geneudgen (RVG) before signing a year-long deal in 2020.
