Mighty Be Forward Wanderers Head Coah Jack ‘Africa’ Chamangwana has been relieved of his duties as the team’s coach and moved back to the position of Technical Director following a string of unconvincing results in the first five games of the 2016 TNM Super League.
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 yesterday.
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.
The Lali Lubani Road outfit slumped from fifth to 10th place in the TNM Super League following their loss to Mafco, leaving the club with no choice but to dismiss the coach. They 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’.
Wanderers team manager Steve Madeira said results had ‘not been good enough’.
Chamangwana, a legend at Wanderers, had also coached the club previously but had disastrous results.
Unconfirmed reports indicate Eddington Ngónamo will take over from Chamangwana.
