Malawi fire German coach Ziese

BLANTYRE, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Malawi have fired German coach Burkhard Ziese a week before they are due to host Zimbabwe in an African Nations Cup qualifier, the Football Association of Malawi announced.

He has been replaced by Kinnah Phiri, who returns for a second a spell in charge of the team.

Ziese, who has contract until the end of next year, was dismissed for alleged breaches of the terms of his deal with the association, FAM president Walter Nyamilandu said.

The veteran German coach, who has a growing list of coaching failures on the continent, was accused of swearing at players and showing disrespect to officials.

Ziese had been in charge of the Malawi side since last November but won just two of his eight matches in charge over the last 10 months.

Ziese was previously coach of Ghana, but fired after they failed to reach the 2004 Nations Cup finals.

He was also dismissed by Zambia during the 1998 Nations Cup finals in Burkina Faso.,

Malawi play Zimbabwe next Saturday in their Group 12 qualifier. Malawi lost 2-0 to Morocco last month in their opening group game.
