Mighty Be Forward Wanderers Technical Director Jack Chamangwana has disclosed that the team would trim the squad next year as it has proved too difficult to manage.
Chamangwana, who replaced Yasin Osman two months ago, said the bloated squad of 32 players, has also contributed to the team’s poor run.
He said he would propose to the management of the team to consider booting out some players who are surplus to requirement and others will be loaned out.
“It’s difficult to manage such a big squad because it does not offer competition among the players. Some players tend to relax because they know that they cannot force their way into the first choice team,” Chamangwana said.
But he was noncommittal on whether the team would buy or not to boost the team.
Wanderers went on a buying spree of players at the start of the season powered by their new sponsors Be Forward spending in excess of K14 million including Cameroonian striker late Lionel Atsu.
They also poached their rivals coach Elia Kananji to Lali Lubani Road as Wanderers only managed to win Carlsberg Cup and are out of the Super League title with Bullets having won the trophy back-to-back.
In a related development their rivals Bullets FC have disclosed that they are targeting at least five players.
Bullets Vice-General Secretary Kelvin Moyo said they would not be enticed by money from their new sponsors Nyasa Tobacco Manufacturers to bring on board players en-mass.
