In his reaction Mwase who has been interim coach for the Flames since April this year said he was had his focus on the cosafa tournament but he would have loved to take the job permanently.
“I did not apply for the job as I wanted to concentrate on the COSAFA tournament but this is a job I am already doing and would love to take the coaching job permanently “, Mwase said.
Meke Mwase has been in charge of the Flames in seven games as interim coach and has only lost once with three wins and three draws and has guided the team to the finals of the 2019 cosafa plate section against South Africa.
