Coach Jack Chamangwana: Sacked after poor run of results

Jack, an elder brother to the club’s chairman George Chamangwana, has been moved back to the position of Technical Director  which he held last season when the team was under tactician Elia Kananji.

Wanderers 2-3 defeat by Mafco on Sunday compounded the Lali Lubani Road outfit’s miserable start to the season, as they slumped from fifth to 10th place in the TNM Super League, leaving the club with no choice but to dismiss the coach.

The Nomads have six points from five games—12 short of leaders Blue Eagles.

“The poor results are unacceptable,” said Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao.

However, the club  described  Chamangwana’s dismissal as ‘mutual consent’  following a string of unconvincing results in the first five games of the 2016 TNM Super League.

Wanderers team manager Steve Madeira  said results had ‘not been good enough’.

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 and demanded Chamangwana-led technical panel to go.

Chamangwana, a legend at Wanderers, had also coached the club previously but had disastrous results.

Ng’onamo, former head coach of Malawi national team,  is tipped to take over as Wanderers coach until the end of the season.

i agree with observation by ” Wanderers Football Club” comment number 3 that the sacking of Jack has been done in haste . Its just one defeat and so called supporters have the power to fire a coach .What happens in Malawi Football is laughable -so much backwardness in everything talk of administration ,fans , games officiation etc its just too much of mediocrity -thats why a team can change its name willy nilly ndi chimidzidi cheni cheni

Lests be honest the problem is with our players they dont give out their best I feel the decision to fire the coach has been a rushed one. Our team is only good in Midfield and striking force,we have a porous defence as well as goal keeping.Dont expect any miracle even if N’gonamo comes unless we recruit good defenders and good goal keeper with a commanding height like that Phalombe Guy.

The first to go should be the chairman and his team. Wanderers will never do well under the leadership of Chamangwana and his friends. We all played football but its not true that we can all run football teams. Remember Gary Neville? The best chairman we can have are people like Alufandika, Humphrey Mvula, Hannock Ng’oma and the like. Chamangwana walephera. Just imagine, they are now focussed on recruiting foreign players, paying them good money in the end killing our local talent. Yet the same foreign players cant win a single game. Shame. With these raw decision makers I expect… Read more »
