Coaches wait for legal advice


By Temwa Malire

National Football Coaches Association (NFCA) is waiting for legal advice on enforcing its K745,000 monthly minimum wage for TNM Super League coaches.

NFCA General Secretary Davie Mpima said the amount was based on what coaches from neighboring countries get.


“We want to protect our coaches from exploitation. We want all defaulters to be reprimanded. Some coaches don’t even have contracts. Worse still, they do not get their dues in time.

“In other cases, they go several months without pay, yet clubs are quick to act when results are not impressive. So we want our coaches to enjoy full protection. They must work in a safe environment,” Mpima said.

Super League of Malawi (Sulom) General Secretary Williams Banda said the issue of employment was demand-driven as it gives a person liberty to take or leave a job based on payment agreements.


“The matter is beyond Sulom. Concerns of capping salaries require an accurate legal review and enforcement,” Banda said.

NFCA should expect an uphill battle in enforcing the wage as most local clubs lack resources to adequately renumerate both playing and coaching staff. —Mana
