Mabedi, Mtawali Germany bound



Former South Africa Premier Soccer League stars Patrick Mabedi and Ernest Mtawali are set to add feathers on their coaching caps when they travel to Germany this week for an A Licence course.

Mtawali, the former South Africa Player of the Year and Mabedi, the ex-Kaizer Chiefs defender, are travelling to Germany couresy of the Football Association of Malawi which recently-appointed the duo as senior national team assistant coaches to Eddington Ng'onamo.

Speaking when unveiling the duo recently in Blantyre, FAM president Walter Nyamilandu said the latest courses are a continuation of the previous training which Mtawali and Mabedi received in the United Kingdom and Germany respectively a few years ago.

The German government is bankrolling the course.

"Our training of Ernest and Mtawali has not been in vain. The appointment of the two was in recognition of their experience. They are icons of Malawi football. They played football at the highest level. We hope their status can galvanise the Flames," Nyamilandu said.

Mtawali and Mabedi passed their first test last month when, in Ng'onamo's absence after the death of his son, they guided Malawi to a 1-0 win over Namibia in a World Cup qualifier.
