Fans to match against Fam and Nyamilandu

Some disgruntled football fans are on Monday expected to present a petition to Malawi National Council of Sports and Football Association of Malawi calling the resignation of FA president Walter Nyamilandu following Malawi national football team’s dismal performance in all competitions.
The supporters, led by one Charles Kanyama, are demanding Fam boss’ removal accusing him of having failed to stir Malawi to success in his third term as FA head.
“I think its high time Mr Nyamilandu paved way for others to lead. He has failed us and I don’t think there is anything new that he can offer for the football development,” he said.
Kanyama said Malawi’s performance has dwindled in his third term because of Nyamilandu style of leadership.
“He doesn’t consult and some of the decision he makes are questionable,” he said.
“Take for example the hiring of Tom Saintfiet. That was the worst decision in Malawi football history.”
Malawi national team has been the subject of debate following the team poor performance at the Cosafa Cup in Zambia in the World Cup qualifiers.
Nyamilandu is under fire for recruiting Belgian coach Tom Saintfiet as coach after demoting the interim technical team led by Eddington Ng’onamo and his assistants Patrick Mabedi and Ernest Mtawali.
Saintfiet who left after losing to Nigeria in the last qualifier, played five games and only won one against Rwanda in a friendly.
Ng’onamo on the other hand managed to beat Namibia and drew against Kenya and Namibia at home. He only lost to Botswana in a friendly.
Fam general secretary Suzgo Nyirenda said contact and dialogue was a solution to the Flames problems.
“ I don’t think removing people from their positions is a solution. What we need is for people to meet and discuss the way forward. I welcome those that are calling for a stakeholders meeting,” Nyirenda said.
Nyamilandu refused to comment on the petition which he faces.
