Albert Mpinganjira ready for challenge

Symon Sikwese

Mighty Wanderers legend Albert Mpinganjira has expressed willingness to take full charge of the team in his elder brother Bob’s absence.

Albert remains the only coach at Wanderers as Bob is in camp with the Malawi National Football Team in Blantyre, where it is preparing for two crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Sudan and Uganda.

The situation is further complicated with the departure of assistant coach Oscar Kaunda, who is now at Karonga United in the same capacity.


Albert said he was ready to step into the shoes of the two seniors and help Wanderers prepare well for TNM Super League games’ resumption.

“I have been at this club for a long time both as a player and coach. I know that everything is now in my hands and I need to rise to the challenge. All I need is the support of our fans and club management. I believe that I have all it takes to turn Wanderers into the winning team that it is supposed to be,” he said.

Wanderers Chairperson Simon Sikwese said Albert started training the team last week after a break following the suspension of Super League games.


“We have confidence in him. He is tactically good and has the potential to become a top-notch trainer. All we have to do is help him get the papers. He has to attend some training so that he becomes even better,” Sikwese said.

The Nomads have not had a good start to the season, losing twice at their Kamuzu Stadium home.
