Phiri warns Harambee Stars



Malawi Flames coach Kinnah Phiri has warned Harambee Stars not to expect an easy ride when the two teams clash in the third quarterfinal of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Cup at Mandela Stadium, Namboole on Tuesday.

Phiri stated that despite the team starting the tournament on losing note, they had regained their rhythm and the players were happy after their grievances were addressed.

The coach is under immense pressure to give solid results in the regional tourney from the federation back home and he is optimistic he will reach the semifinal by beating Kenya.

"I am happy with our progress in the competition though we started badly we recovered well to get important wins that helped propel us to the quarterfinals. Kenya is a tough team and I know them well as we have played severally.”

“I want to warn them not to expect and easy ride when we clash with them as it we will ensure we give them a run for their money."

"My players are raring to go after their grievances were settled and am optimistic we will make it to the semifinals as long as we play a well coordinated game with all the players giving 100 percent in the game," Phiri told supersport.com.
