FAM Chief Executive Officer, Suzgo Nyirenda told local online media that instead his organization has secured a friendly against Sierra Leone which will be played on March 22 but the team will leave for West Africa nation on March 20.
Among some high profiled teams which Malawi FA was courting was Mali but because it could not afford to cough out the fees which agents were demanding.
“We cannot manage to secure friendly matches easily with high profiled team in the absence of agents who need at least US$10,000 or US$ US$15,000 fee,” said Nyirenda.
Meanwhile, Coach Ernest Mtawali has expressed satisfaction with the progress the team has been making in the three weeks it has been in camp preparing the encounter against Guinea’s Syli nationale.
Malawi will face Guinea in Conakry then in Blantyre these two games will be crucial for the Flames to win to keep their prospects of qualifying for AFCON finals on the boil.
