Phiri told our online reporter that most teams that graduate into the elite league from Simama do not stay due to lack of experience.


"What happens in other countries is that if a team is promoted into super league, it gets experienced players from big clubs on loan. In this case Karonga United should discuss with Wanderers, Bullets, Silver and other teams to get on loan some experienced players to be merged with players from the lower league if they are to stay in TNM super league," advised Kinnah Phiri.


Kinnah who is former star for the Flames also told Simama league teams to tap skills from football legends.


"You know some legends like Gilbert Chirwa and Russell Mwafulirwa are here, it is important for teams in Simama league to use them so that the North should produce quality players and increase representation in the super league," said Kinnah Phiri.


On the opening of a stadium in Karonga, Kinnah Phiri who is also a son of the district, expressed the hope that the club (KA United) will do well as it has a ground for home games.


Kinnah Phiri has been coaching football teams in some African countries including Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania and now Botswana.
