Mighty Be Foward Wanderers have confirmed Jack Chamangwana as their new head coach to replace Elias Kananji who will have to attain the required CAF coaching badge.
The new coach has an affinity with the club where he had a glittering carer and also once coached. The former Malawi head coach is the current technical director and will double his post with coaching.
“Wanderers are delighted to announce the appointment of Jack Chamangwana as the club’s new coach,” said the club’s secretary general Mike Butao.
The appointment was announced on Saturday when Chamangwana’s young brother, George got the nod for another term as the club’s chairman.
Butao said Jack Chamangwana’s experience and qualifications will help the club achieve its ambitious objectives in 2016.
He said Wanderers have taken a coach who understands the Mighty Wanderers way.
“I will give my best,” said Chamangwana confirming his appointment.
The club licencing requirement, which comes into force next season, has already seen some teams recruiting coaches with recommended qualifications. Civo United have appointed Milias Pofera Jegwe, Dwangwa United have employed McDonald Mtetemera, Max Bullets have roped in Leo Mpulula while Stereo Gondwe has joined Chilumba Barracks.
Surprisingly, all the three coaches that won silverware last season— Mabvuto Lungu (Super League championship), Elia Kananji (Carlsberg Cup with Be Forward Wanderers) and Oscar Kaunda (Standard Bank Knockout Cup with Civo United)—did not have the required minimum qualification.
