Gerald Phiri resigns as Wanderers coach after poor run of results

Mighty Wanderers coach Gerald Phiri has quit because of poor results, including a 1-2 shock defeat against Karonga United in the TNM Super League on Sunday.

The blues general secretary Mike Butao confirmed  Phiri’s  departure was by mutual agreement, and his replacement would be announced soon,  without elaborating.

“Gerald Phiri notified the club of his intent to resign Monday, taking responsibility for the poor results culminating in Sunday’s defeat,” Butao said.

According to Butao the executive will meet to appoint new coach but in the interim the team will be led by Technical director Yasin Osman, assistant coach Kannock Munde and Thom Milanzie who is the team manager.

Wanderers next game is against Civo United on Sunday at Kamuzu Stadium.

But former Wanderers flamboyant General Secretary David Kanyenda, said the resignation of Phiri was a tip of iceberg for the team’s problem.

The outspoken sports administrator called for the executive committee to resign.

“The departure of the coach is only a small part of the solution. In my humble view, the entire administrative set up has to be restructured .The membership of both the fans and main executive committee has to be reviewed,” Kanyenda said.

Ironically he championed the campaign to have him fired or resigned.

Phiri was appointed replacing the team’s former defender Stuart Mbolembole at the beginning of the season.

    Inu a Nyasatimes,when something happens in Wanderers camp,stop interviewing Kanyenda or granting him interviews ngati amabwera yekha! We have a lot of outgoing committee members,they don’t behave that way! Before him,there was Chipi,still a Nomad,but doesn’t make such noise. We know,Kanyenda,you are trying all you can to ensure the committee fails. If you were a true nomad,you shouldn’t have been addressing our family issue in the media. We are not happy seeing our beloved team losing and we weren’t happy either with the way you used to run the affairs of our team. You better shut your mouth!
