Reshuffle for Flames panel


The Flames Head Coach, Ronny van Geneugden, has hinted that he would engage Football Association of Malawi (Fam) over the possibility of beefing up and restructuring his backroom staff next year.
“It is important to sit [down] with the Fam President [Walter Nyamilandu] and find ways of making improvements,” the coach told Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) Wednesday.
“[As part of] our plans in 2018, we want to create an academy and the technical panel will become bigger. We have to build our technical panel and divide who is working with the national team, academy, local coaches and youth coaches.”
The Belgian, who was appointed in April, unveiled the plan ahead of next year’s matches against Comoros, Morocco and Cameroon in the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers.
Plans to bloat the panel come amid reports that there is a fall-out between the Belgian and his assistants, Deklerk Msakakuona and Gerald Phiri Senior, who are in the final year of their one-year contracts.
Peter Mponda is van Geneugden’s other assistant.
Nyamilandu was not readily available for a comment yesterday. But recently, the Fam boss told The Daily Times that van Geneugden would, eventually, choose his preferred assistant coaches at the end of the year.
About 11 local coaches were earmarked to understudy the Belgian on rotational basis.
