Malawi FA Denies Talks With Spain Coach Condom

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has denied rumours that they are on verge of signing Spaniard Jordi Condom as the new national team head coach.

The internet was on Monday awash with reports that Condom was in advanced talks with FAM to become the new Brave Warriors coach ahead of 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

FAM has however denied the reports which also  suggested that current head coach Meck Mwase has been relieved his duties.

“The Football Association of Malawi has learnt with great concern of social media reports that the Association intends to engage a Spanish Manager named Jordi Condom for the position of the Men’s Senior National Team Head Coach,” the federation said in a statement.

“FAM would like to remind its stakeholders and the general public that it has a running contract with Meck Mwase until February 2023.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“FAM therefore categorically distances itself from this post making rounds on social media.[/perfectpullquote]

“As a well-established organisation, FAM recognizes the progress made so far by the Senior National Team and respects the contract agreement in place between FAM and the National Team Coach.

“FAM would never engage another person for a position whose holder still has a running contract with the association.”

Condom is currently in-charge of Belgian First Division A side Royal Football Club Seraing.

The 52-year-old was rumored to have agreed to lead BraveWarriors  against West African giants Senegal, Guinea, and Southern African rivals Zimbabwe Group B of next year’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in Cameroon.

The rescheduled continental showpiece will be held from January 9 to 21 in Cameroon with Malawi making their third appearance after 1984 and 2010.
