Breaking News: Ng’onamo, Kananji fired!
Be Forward Wanderers have sacked coach Eddington Ng’onamo and his deputy Eliya Kananji a month after leading them to Carlsberg Cup triumph, Malawi24 can confirm.
On Tuesday, the team’s executive committee had summoned the technical panel to an emergency meeting following a 1-nil defeat to rivals Nyasa Big Bullets on Saturday where they resolved to have the two coaches fired due to dismal poor run of form in the super league.
Currently on 10th position with 29 points from 20 games, the Nomads only managed to collect a point from possible 9 in their last three games. Wanderers finished on 4th position last year but they are yet to end their super league drought, having won the league in 2006.
The duo have been replaced by former Flames international Yasin Osman who will be deputised by former Nomads striker Bob Mpinganjira. Kananji has confirmed that he has indeed received the letter of his dismisal.
On Tuesday, Malawi24 published an article which revealed that Kananji’s first eleven was turned down by the executive saying the derby was ‘too’ big without former Flames captain Joseph Kamwendo. Eventually, Kamwendo was outclassed by former Nomads reject Kondwani Kumwenda who scored the only goal to inspire Bullets to the victory.
