Moyale Barracks, TNM Super League outfit, have fired Coach Charles Kamanga and have re-engaged their former Coach Collins Nkuna, Malawi sport can confirm.
Kamanga confirmed that he had been re-deployed to other assignment within the Malawi defence force.
This follows the team’s poor performance in the top fight league where it has won three time, drawn two times and lost five times to occupy position 10 with 11 points from 10 games.
Kamanga said, “He has been transferred to another department but he does not want to talk about the issue. He just wishes the team well for the remainder of the season.
Gerald Kanje, General Secretary of Moyale Barracks confirmed the development, saying Collins Nkuna was expected to start working today. He said it was disheartening that the club had failed to win trophies in the past four years.
“After the analysis of the team’s performance, we came up with right thoughts of bring Nkuna on board. After the 0-0 draw with Civil Sporting at home and upon our position on the log table, we decided to re-engage our former coach, “he said.
Nkuna has confirmed returning to the lions of Kaning’ina, where he also featured as player.
The former Red Lions mentor said his priority would be to help the soldiers improve their standing on the table.
“I am happy for the re-engagement to Moyale but it would be unfortunate if we continue performing poorly. I want to do well and perform my duty to obey what my bosses ask me to do, and I challenge to improve Moyale’s performance.
“The team has not been doing so well but my return does not necessarily mean we will be winning all matches. The players should work hard so that we can claim our lost glory, “said Nkuna.
The soldier collected a point from their last game against Civil Sporting, which ended on a draw.
