Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has dismissed social media reports that have spread like wild bush fire, suggesting that the association is on the verge hiring Spanish coach Jordi Condom.
International media outlets and social media influencers have been busy suggesting that Condom—whose very name is a subject of jokes—would lead Malawi senior national football team, the Flames, to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in Cameroon next January.
However, FAM General Secretary Alfred Gunda has issued a statement that they do not intend to remove incumbent coach Meck Mwase who steered the less fancied Flames to the AFCON finals at the expense of teams such as Uganda.
Mwase is the third coach, after other locals Henry Moyo and Kinnah Phiri, to lead the Flames to AFCON.
However, of late the team’s form has dipped in the Fifa World Cup qualifiers that saw the team lose four games to Cameroon and Ivory Coast while managing just one win over Mozambique.
