Barely a day after Master Security FC hired Oscar Kaunda as the team’s assistant coach, fellow TNM Super League new boys, Chitipa United, have embarked on a hunt for a Head Coach.
This comes after Chitipa’s current mentor, Robert Mzinza, who earned them Super League promotion, confirmed that he will not be able to get the required Caf B coaching licence in good time.
“I can confirm that I am not going to be the man behind the team’s driving seat in this year’s Super League season. I will not manage to get the required coaching licence before April. Hopefully, by the end of this year, I will get it,” said Mzinza, who currently holds a Caf C coaching licence.
He, however, said he will remain at the team to assist in other technical areas.
Chitipa’s General Secretary, Marshall Mwenechanya, on Monday said the team had no option but look for a qualified coach.
Mwenechanya declined to mention possible names that will take up the job, saying the team’s executive committee meeting to be held on Saturday will discuss the matter.
“Of course, [hiring a qualified coach] is one the critical areas that this team will look into before we even start our pre-seasons. But we need a coach who is capable to get the best out of this current squad,” Mwenechanya explained.
In 2015, Football Association of Malawi (Fam) set Caf B Coaching Licence as the minimum qualification for every Super League team’s coach.
