As the country is yet to fully embrace club licensing, Football Association of Malawi (Fam) has intensified its mission to implement club licensing by assigning its Facility and TMS Manager to work closely with Super League of Malawi.
However, Sulom is not aware that Jangale has been recommended to work with its secretariat.
The development comes after Fam president Walter Nyamilandu made club licensing his number one resolution soon after being reelected.
Fam general secretary, Suzgo Nyirenda, said Jangale would be working jointly with Sulom secretariat to ensure successful implementation of club licencing.
“It is not strange because he has worked with Sulom secretariat before. However, this time we want him to work closely with Sulom secretariat so that we should move some steps up,” he said.
However, Sulom general secretary, Williams Banda, while welcoming the move said they were waiting for official communication.
“We have got the news through the grapevine. We would have loved if there was official communication. There are number of things which we need to clarify. We also want to know whether Jangale will come in as a relief worker or otherwise. Nevertheless, we welcome the move as move towards professionalising our league,” he said.
In an interview later, Fam GS Nyirenda clarified that Jangale was still under Fam’s payroll.
“We want to move some steps up so that we should meet the minimum requirements,” he
Clubs are supposed to meet certain requirements which include owning infrastructure like administration offices, employing qualified personnel to run their financial, marketing and media departments, developing sound junior teams, investing in training facilities and own stadiums for training and matches.
The clubs should also be in a position to issue audited accounts at the end of each year before they are issued with a licence.
