Patrick Mabedi relishes Kaizer Chiefs’ experience

Former Malawi’s Flames skipper, Patrick Mabedi, has said he is learning a lot working under Kaizer Chiefs Coach, Steve Komphela, in South African Premier Soccer League (PSL).

The Daily Times contacted the former Flames assistant coach Tuesday to share his experience of working on the coaching panel of one of the giant football clubs in Africa.

“It is a familiar surrounding for me. I am used to the sights and sounds here. I am home,” said the former Chiefs captain.

“Obviously, life is about learning. I am learning a lot from the coach. About coaching, this is not my first time. I have worked under Munshin Ertrugral [at Mpumalanga Black Aces] and I have even done it on my own [as coach of Cape Town All Stars].”

The holder of Uefa coaching badges served as co-assistant coach to the then Flames interim mentor, Eddingtone Ng’onamo, in 2013 and also in similar capacity under Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan in 2015.

The former Nyasa Big Bullets defender did not rule out coaching the Flames in future.

“Now it is about waiting for the right time [to coach the Flames],”said Mabedi, who replaced Ghanaian John Painstil as Komphela’s right-hand man.

Chiefs Football Manager, Bobby Motaung, visited Lilongwe a fortnight ago but Mabedi said there was nothing suggesting that the Soweto giants spotted any player.
