Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao said Bob was not fired but suspended on discipline grounds, saying  his  prolonged absence due to his appointment as Flames and Under-23 assistant coach had a negative impact on the team

“We asked him to choose between Wanderers and national teams ,” said Butao.

Bob confirmed having agreed to conditions set by Wanderers.

The Nomads, who fired  assistant coach Allan Kamanga and technical director Yasin Osman, have brought in Oscar Kaubda from Civil to beef up the technical panel as team manager Steve Madeira has also quit.

Butao said they picked Kaunda because he is “ a struck disciplinarian” and that he had “a proven track record.”

Kaunda confirmed he had agreed terms with Wanderers.

“I look forward to a new lease of life at Wanderers,” he said.

Bob’s younger brother Albert, reverts as the reserve side coach, after being  in charge of the main team in an acting capacity.

The Nomads were left searching their soul after two successive defeats at home. They lost to Silver Strikers 1-0 in an Airtel Top 8 quarter-final first leg before going down 1-3 to Blue Eagles in the TNM Super League.

At the weekend they won against  Karonga United and drew against Chitipa United.
