CAF A Licence results delayed

Local coaches who sat for the CAF A Licence examinations in April will have to wait a little longer for their results.

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) technical director John Kaputa said on Thursday the results have delayed due to a back log at Confederation of African Football (CAF) secretariat.

“Apparently, most African countries had the CAF A Licence course at the same time and now CAF has to process all the results at the same time,” Kaputa said.

“For example, I was marking the CAF A examinations from South Africa. I finished and submitted the results long time ago, but up to now CAF has not yet released the results as well.”

Apart from South Africa and Malawi, other countries that also conducted the CAF A Licence in April include Zambia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Botswana.

Kaputa was, however, hopeful that the results would be out next month.

The CAF A Licence was the first-ever for Malawi and it attracted 55 coaches who got the CAF B Licence in 2013.

CAF has instituted a licensing system which ensures that coaches fulfil some criteria before they can coach in Africa.

All coaches must hold either a management diploma or CAF A Licence also called CAF Pro Licence to coach national league clubs.

The continental football governing body is following steps made by other confederations such as Uefa that has management diploma or Uefa Pro Licence as the highest qualification.
