The club apologized through their team manager Steve Madeira at a news conference held on Tuesday at the clubs offices in Blantyre.

Madeira said it is worrisome to see that the football club is producing poor results despite having good players that are of high caliber.

“We have raised our hands to says  sorry to our supporters due to embarrassing performance of the clubs. It is unfortunate that the team is not doing well when we have very good players than any team.

“But supporters should continue trusting us and that good results are coming ahead. It is too early to say that Wanderers is struggling this year.

“What I can say is that we have noted technical problems and they have been sorted out,” said Madeira adding that supporters should continue to come in large numbers to cheer their team during football games.

As part of the shake-up, Wanderers Head Coach Jack ‘Africa’ Chamangwana has been moved back to the position of Technical Director.

Ng’onamo will be assisted by Elia Kananji.

Speaking on behalf of fellow players, striker Peter Wadabwa said all is not lost for the Lali Lubani side saying it is too early to say negative about the team.

Wadabwa said poor performance of the club can also attributed to players themselves for lacking commitment during games.

“We did not expect the football club to perform like this. Actually it is painful even to us players.  I am sure we can all turn this season around,” he said.

On Sunday, scores of Nomads’ fans stormed the team’s club house at Chichiri in Blantyre to protest the team’s poor start to the season, which culminated in a 2-3 loss to Mafco at Kamuzu Stadium.

This was after the angry fans stormed the dressing room premises at the stadium where they bayed for Chamangwana and goalkeeper Bester Phiri’s blood.

The Nomads executive committee reacted swiftly by summoning the Chamangwana-led technical panel to an emergency meeting.

The Lali Lubani Road outfit slumped from fifth to 10th place in the TNM Super League following their loss to Mafco. They have six points from five games 12 short of leaders Blue Eagles.

That Wanderers has a high-caliber players is a matter that I should ask the club to agree to disagree. Football is a technical game that players, the coach, technical panel and supporters must understand. I have disliked Malawi football but the way Moyale Barracks played with Bullets in the first game was a marvel to watch. Moyale played a very excellent game that was free flowing with enterprising passes. I wished if coach Mtawali watched the game and this is the way international players act their game. Getting players from Nigeria and Japan is nothing even getting Ronaldo. The brain… Read more »

Mukunditsekesa bwanji ! mukuti wanderers has the best players than any other team in Malawi ?
Anyway , the truth is that B ‘ Forward kayanso mumati ” nyerere ” has the most talkative players including ma supporters.
Olo mutatenga ma coach aku Nigeria onse , league I men’s to muyiwale
In-short ,teams with the best players and a head coach are the ones that are showing positive results and not mapokoso ngati inu anyerere.
Koma yikamata league imeneyi mukala mutamalidza ma coach onse.
