Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has announced plans to introduce Coach of the Month Award in the forthcoming 2018 TNM Super League season.
The top-flight league governing body’s treasurer Tiya Somba-Banda has also announced the revival of the Man-of-the-Match awards.
Last season, there were no man-of-the-match awards and the development is likely to cause excitement among players.
“Man-of-the-Match Award is not included in the TNM plc sponsorship contract; hence, it was difficult for TNM to continue financing it.
“However, for next  season, we will be working with other partners to finance the awards, including the Coach of the Month Award.
“The details and packages will be unveiled before kick-off,” he said.
Veteran midfielder Joseph Kamwendo, who was 2018 Player of the Season, described the revival of Man-of-the-Match Award as encouraging.
“It is a good development for the game because it motivates the players to give out something extra,” he said.
