Football Association of Malawi (FAM) have fired Belgian coach Ronny van Geneugden.

This comes after the Flames failed to qualify for the finals of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) which will be hosted by Egypt.

In a statement, Football Association of Malawi (FAM) said they decided against extending the contract of the Belgian, whose two-year contract ended on March 31 2019, due to poor performance.

“The Executive Committee resolved to adopt the recommendation of the Technical Committee not to renew the contract of the national team coach based on poor results of the Malawi national team,” FAM General Secretary Alfred Gunda said.

Van Geneugden only masterminded two wins out of 22 games during his two-year spell as the Flames head coach.

Malawi under-23 coach Meke Mwase has since been in temporary charge of the Flames.

His first assignment will be the 2020 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier against eSwatini later this month.
