Meke Mwase can afford a smile after signing a one year contract as coach for Malawi national football team despite already being on the position for 8 months without a contract.
The former TN Stars coach was appointed as Flames coach in June 2019 and until now he had not put pen to paper for his appointment and his contract according to spokesperson in the ministry of sports, youth and culture Simion Mbvundula is effective February 2020.
“Mr Mwase has now signed a contract as coach for the Flames which starts in February this year until February next year”, Mbundula said.
Speaking after signing the contract, Mwase said it feels good getting the offer which he has been waiting for but will seek clarification on what will happen for the other months he worked as flames coach without a contract.
“It feels good now that I have signed the contract after agreeing to their terms. Honestly speaking it was worrisome for me to be working without a contract but now that is water under under the bridge.
“I will now seek clarification from the Football Associated of Malawi (FAM) on what will be the way forward on the 8 months I have been in charge of the team as coach without a contract,” he said.
Mwase was appointed as flames head coach after the Belgian tactician Ronny Van Geneugden was fired in April last year and guided the flames to the cosafa tournament last year as well as 2022 world cup and 2021 African cup of nations qualifiers respectively.
