Reporters also under pressure, Flames coach


Malawi National Football Team Coach, Ronny van Geneugden, has insisted that pressure is part of any coaching job hence there is no issue with him facing the same.

The Belgian, who is winless in three games since getting the Flames job last month, spoke about the pressure in Blantyre on Tuesday afternoon.

“Of course, there is always pressure—whether you are a club coach or a national team coach, there is always pressure. Even also to you as journalists, you have pressure to ask a good question,” he insisted.


“In every game, even in training I want to win but of course, in a very good way. Not building a wall and stand 60 metres while hoping that the ball will go into the net. Of course, it will happen in some games, but that is not my style. I always want to win in a good way,” van Geneugden said.

He was responding to questions from the media on the sidelines of Multichoice Malawi’s donation of an Explora decoder to the coach.

Van Geneugden posted two losses (by 1-0 margins against Madagascar) and drew 0-0 in Kenya last month.


The Belgian said he was finding his feet in Blantyre and hopes to relocate from a hotel to his new home.

“People have welcomed me. They are happy to have mzungu. I hope to move and start life as a family,” said the former Belgiam’s Genk FC’s coach.

The coach’s next assignment is against the Union of Comoros on June 10 at home in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
