Nomads team Manager unhappy with his players: They will have me fired
They have been spending millions on recruiting new players but their performance in the top flight is not what team manager Steve Madeira expected from his boys.
Be Forward Wanderers had to score a late equalizer in their 2-all draw away to Epac FC on Saturday, a result that did not go well with Madeira who told reporters that his players will one day get the technical panel fired.
“We are a big team and we must perform like a big team. Coming from behind against Epac FC is a worrisome development considering the fact that we have been spending big in the transfer market to improve our performance in the league but it’s not happening.”
“This kind of performance from the boys will get us all fired from our respective positions because it’s unacceptable to spend but not to produce good results so sometimes we fear for our jobs,” said Madeira.
He then advised his players to move on and focus on Wednesday’ clash against Kamuzu Barracks in the 2016 Carlsberg Cup at Kamuzu Stadium.
“We just need to move on from this disappointing result and focus on our Wednesday clash against Kamuzu Barracks at home in the Carlsberg Cup. We must progress at any cost, we are the defending champions and we can’t just surrender the cup at this stage,” he concluded.
In the TNM Super League, the Nomads are 6th in the standings with 24 points and will play Mzuni FC at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday in their final first round league match.
The Lali Lubani boys have gone 11 years without winning the championship but they are optimistic of ending the drought this season.
