Mighty Be Forward Wanderers have confirmed that Eddington Ng’onamo will take over as coach until the end of the season after sacking Jack Chamangwana and the club apologized to their supporters following a string of unconvincing results in the first five games of the 2016 TNM Super League.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
