Epac FC has appointed Audrow Makonyola as their new coach replacing Abas Makawa who dumped the team over contractual disagreement.
Makonyola who in 2014 was the team’s coach has been at the centre of speculation alongside Gilbert Chirwa and former Escom United coach Alex Masanjala.
In an interview with The Malawi star, Epac FC General Secretary Chiyamiko Lita confirmed the appointment saying Makonyola has signed a one-year contract.
“We had a meeting yesterday and we have endorsed the name of Audrow Makonyola as our new coach. We have given him a one-year contract which will be renewed based on performance,” Lita said.
Lita added that they will not expect much from the new coach but they are optimistic that he will succeed in this coming season.
On his part, Makonyola said he is happy to return to his old club and says he is ready to face the challenge.
The appointment has come after former Epac FC coach Abas Makawa dumped the Lilongwe based side and is reported to have taken over a Division 1 team Lake View FC in Ntcheu District.
However, unconfirmed reports are also showing that Makawa is going to fill the vacant coaching post at Dedza Young Soccer following the departure of Milius Pofera Jegwe.
Meanwhile, Epac FC has revealed that they will sign four experienced players before the start of the season.
