Heads rolling at Wanderers, Civo: Malawi Super League clubs

Enough is enough! Heads are rolling at Mighty Wanderers and Civo United camps following the string of unimpressive results recorded by the two Super League sides in both league and cup competitions.

According to reports verified by Nyasa Times, there are major reshuffles in both teams’ technical panels with Civo’s Thom Nkorongo confirmed as the first major casualty.

Nkorongo, who took over as Civo’s head coach following the firing of veteran coach Alex Masanjala has been suspended by his club after the government sponsored side failed to register a win in five consecutive league matches.

Sources from the club’s executive indicate the side is now eyeing the services of Kabwafu United coach Oscar Kaunda and little known Beggie Mwagomba, who has been mainly involved with netball coaching. Mwagomba also coached a Chipiku Central Region Football League side Hard Knockers.

At Nyerere camp, general secretary David Kanyenda, who is also head of the team’s technical panel has confirmed with local radio, Zodiak Broadcasting Station that heads are indeed going to roll following the team’s recent slump in form.

The Nomads have failed to score even a single goal in six consecutive games, a development that has forced the club’s executive to act.

“As an executive, we cannot sit and watch the team performing miserably. We have very good and promising young players but this is not being reflected on the pitch. After consultations with supporters, we have found out that the problem is with the technical committee. You hire a technical team to produce results and when results are not
coming forth, the coaches have to be answerable.

“We are definitely going to make changes in the technical team. Some people have to go and others have to come in,” said the Wanderers general secretary.

Reports say the Nomads have targeted former Flames’ technical director Jack Chamangwana to take over the struggling ship but Kanyenda said there are several other names that have been proposed.
