Fisd Challenge Cup champions, Kamuzu Barracks FC (KB), expect to name a new coach by the end of this month, the team’s Publicity Secretary, Prince Majiga, has confirmed.
KB do not have a head coach, following Super League of Malawi’s season-long ban on Billy Phambala.
Phambala was banned after being found guilty of misconduct during a game that ended in a 1-1 draw against Blue Eagles at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe on August 2 2017.
Majiga said the transition of power from the previous Executive Committee to new office bearers has delayed the search for Phambala’s replacement.
“We are yet to meet and map the way forward. However, the issue of hiring another coach would be our first priority when we meet this week.
“On players, we have a deep squad but the decision to bring in new players would depend on the technical panel’s needs’ assessment. If they ascertain that new players should be roped in the squad, we will facilitate that process. Whatever the case, the team has enough depth to competitively and seriously challenge for honours this season,” he said.
The 2016 TNM Super League champions failed to defend the title in 2017 season after finishing on position eight on the log table. Be Forward Wanderers won the league championship.
