Former Flames defender Meke Mwase is set to be unveiled as a coach for Swaziland Premier Soccer League giants Mbabane Highlanders, The Daily Times has learnt.
Mwase arrived in Swaziland on Thursday to conclude his deal with the Mbabane-based side.
Times of Swaziland reported on Thursday that Mwase, a former Mighty Wanderers, Big Bullets and Jomo Cosmos defender had been engaged as the new coach for the club.
According to the publication, Mwase replaces Enerst Mavuso, who had his contract not renewed at the end of the season.
Mavuso is now coach for Red Lions (Swaziland club).
“Mavuso, who made a name for himself as head coach of Mbabane Highlanders last season, had his contract not renewed as the capital city giants sought the services of Malawian mentor Mwase, who arrived (on Thursday) from Blantyre”, reported the publication.
However, Mwase was not available for comment on Sunday as his mobile phone was off.
Mwase’s appointment comes after Flames care taker coach Ernest Mtawali and former coach Young Chimodzi refused to accept the offers.
Mtawali has been shortlisted for the Flames permanent coaching job while Chimodzi was fired on June 14 soon after 2-1 home loss to Zimbabwe in the 2017 Africa Cup on Nations qualifying campaign.
