Fired Malawi Coach Meck Mwase To Sue FA

Former Malawi national team head coach Meck Mwase, who was sacked by the Football Federation (FAM) on Monday has decided to file a case against the body for wrongful termination of contract.

The 49-year-old former Malawi international told reporters on Tuesday that there was no clause in his contract that stipulates he could be fired if he failed to accomplish his objectives.

He said he had instructed his lawyer to take the case to court to obtain unpaid salaries and damages for the quashing of his existing two-year deal.

Mwase inspired the Flames to the country’s third Africa Cup of Nations finals appearance in Cameroon in January this year.

He has since been replaced by Romanian tactician Mario Marinica, who has been serving as technical director of the national team.

Sources indicate that FAM has already approached Mwase arguing him not to file the case in exchange of Malawi U-23 national team coaching job.

Mwase took over the Flames job from Belgian coach Ronny Van Geneugden whose contract was not extended in June 2019 following a series of poor results.

Malawi new coach is expected to lead the Flames to the next edition of the AFCON which will be staged in Cote d’Ivoire next year.

The South African nation will know their opponents in the 2023 AFCON qualifications group stages on Tuesday, April 19, 2022 when the draw takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa.
