Mighty Wanderers on Tuesday unveiled Stewart Mbolembole as their head coach.
He replaces Felix Fosko, who has been sacked and Mbolembole himself was removed from his post at Team Manager for Malawi national team when Football Association of Malawi dissolved the technical panel.
“I am delighted to bring Mbolembole back home to Wanderers. He is perfect for us,” the club’s general secretary David Kanyenda told Nyasa Times at BAT Ground.
Mbolembole said one of his priorities as the new Nomads mentor is to clinch the TNM Super League at the end of the season.
He said his appointment is not challenging basing on the fact that this is not his first time to coach the Nomads.
“I will not have many difficulties in handling the team because Wanderers has been my home all along. I am also confident that with the assistant of Albert Mpinganjira we can deliver and win the title this season,” said Mbolembole, who was donning a black suit.
Commenting on the sacking of Fosco, the Nomads general secretary Kanyenda said the club felt that “a change was necessary.”
Kanyenda said they expect Mbolembole to take the Nomads to success by clinching either the Carlsberg Cup, the league and defending the Standard Bank.
But Mbolembole will need to retain that level of optimism if he is to thrive at Lali Lubani Road.
His first match in charge will be against rivals Big Bullets on Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
