Yes, they are talentless


Sometimes it is good to call a spade by its name because calling a spade a big spoon shows that something is wrong with your grey matter.

Two weeks ago, when I wrote in this column that Malawian coaches are a big letdown and an embarrassment to the nation, and that they do not deserve to coach the Flames, some reacted angrily to my opinion.

The more some of these coaches complained to me about my article, the more my inner being confirmed that they have little or no brains to be entrusted with such demanding tasks.


But I don’t care, so long as I believe in what I write. I have no apology to make. It will not be an overstatement to call the so-called Malawi Coaches Association, an umbrella body that governs this bunch of talentless people, a hopeless organisation that needs a complete overhaul.

Seriously, was I wrong to say that this horde of talentless coaches has left the nation grieving and weeping for decades, and there is need to give us a breather?

Curse me if you want, but I am being honest and I owe no one an apology for my fair opinion on such coaches.


In fact, I would advise Fam that having an absolute trust in such talentless technocrats is suicidal.

Curse me if you want, but I still believe that it is ridiculous to coach football for close to three decades and still fail to produce results on the national team level.

Did someone sensible enough expect me to praise mediocrity when we all know that our football life has not been good because of these tactless coaches?

Unless we admit that our local coaches are certainly not the best when it comes to natural gifts that are showered on people who make a living through football coaching, nothing will improve.

It is in the same vein that I would not mince words on those who vandalised the state-of-the-art Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe after Luso Bus Ipite Bonanza second leg match between Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers.

It is a bunch of thugs without sense of prestige who, in their drunken stupor, decided to descend on the state-of-the-art property by looting sanitary equipment at the facility.

It is extremely dangerous and disappointing for a developing nation like Malawi to have such hopeless and visionless thugs in stock.

Considering such banditry, it is difficult to believe that this is the same country our forefathers struggled to build after independence.
