Mighty Be Forward Wanderers has sacked its Head Coach Jack ‘Africa’ Chamangwana with Eddington Ngónamo touted as possible successor.
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.
