Azam Tigers bitter with Charles Manda


Azam Tigers FC Technical Director, Robin Alufandika, has accused Charles Manda of allegedly being dishonest for dumping the team after reaching an agreement to become its coach.
Last week, Alufandika told The Daily Times that they had hired Manda to replace Patrick Kulemeka who is busy with studies.
But Alufandika said he was surprised to learn that Manda was in talks with newly promoted Nchalo United.
“We held talks with him [Manda] and we reached an agreement for him to start working when we begin pre-season preparations early next month.
“We even paid his January house rentals. He is not an honest man. We don’t have a problem with him moving to another club, but he could have come in the open and said ‘abambo you have saved me during the time I was not employed, can I go for greener pastures?’ We could have allowed him to go,” Alufandika said.
He said even though Manda did not sign a written contract, he considers verbal talks they had with him as part of an agreement.
“We only held verbal talks. If you are dealing with honest people, you can have a verbal contract and it works, but if you are dealing with people who are not honest, a written contract is required in case something comes up, as in this case. However, we don’t mind, any coach can come and go,” he said.
Manda disagreed with Alufandika, saying he never had an agreement with the team.
“They only asked me to assist the team during the last [TNM Super League] games between Kamuzu Barracks and Mafco. I was surprised to hear that they had hired me. There was nothing of that sort,” Manda said.
On reports linking him with Nchalo, Manda said talks are underway and he may join the team if they reach an agreement.
