TNM Super League giants Silver Strikers are expected to reshuffle their technical panel before the start of the second round.
This follows an executive committee meeting on Friday last week which resolved to reshuffle the Young Chimodzi Senior-led technical panel.
The club is also expected to fill the vacant post of assistant coach after Lovemore Fazili was named Malawi national football team assistant coach.
Silver Chairperson, Peter Chando, said the meeting proposed changes to the panel before the second round kicks off.
“The meeting came out with several proposals and possibilities are there that we might make changes to the technical panel. As you are also aware, our assistant coach left the club for national team duties and we need to replace him,” Chando said.
Reports suggest that Silver are interested in hiring Masters Security coaches Abasi Makawa and Elia Kananji.
Chando also said they would make at least two signings during the mid-season break.
“We are of the view that the club has lost touch and identity of play because some players do not possess the qualities we want. Silver are renowned for stylish passing football but this has not been the case over a certain period. When we asked the coaches, they said it was because of the players at their disposal. We are therefore on the market looking for players with great skills,” he added.
Silver assistant Coach, Peter Mgangira, said it was normal in football for clubs to reshuffle members of the technical panel.
Silver were on the verge of sacking the technical panel at the start of the season but changed their mind after winning the Airtel Top 8 when they defeated Karonga United 1-0 at Bingu National Stadium.
Before the start of the season, Silver bolstered their squad with Ernest Tambe, Charles Thom and Sheriff Shamama. Tambe and Shamama have struggled to break into the first eleven due to injuries.
During a party organised to celebrate Airtel Cup success, Reserve Bank of Malawi Governor Dalitso Kabambe challenged the players to win the TNM Super League.
The Central Bankers have gone five consecutive years without winning the league title.
