Be Forward Wanderers Captain, Joseph Kamwendo, has advised the club’s Executive Committee against tampering with the Yasin Osman-led coaching panel.
Kamwendo was reacting to reports that some fans have advised the committee to bolster the coaching panel with Zimbabwean Calisto Pasuwa, ahead of the Confederation of African Football Champions League campaign against AS Vita of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
However, Kamwendo said the Osman-led technical panel has performed well after winning the TNM Super League championship for the first time in 11 years.
Wanderers also reached the Airtel Top 8 and Carlsberg cup finals.
“I don’t think that this could be the right thing to do. These guys did a good job in the just-ended season, so they deserve continuation. It was not easy to win the league title, but we fought.
“We expect to resume training soon, and starting training with a new coaching panel could disturb continuity. It also takes time to adapt to a new style of play,” Kamwendo said.
The captain also said the coming in of seven news players was good for the team, saying it would encourage healthy competition for playing positions.
“I hope that our authorities know what they are doing. We have welcomed them [the new players]. They are good players with various skills,” Kamwendo said.
Last week, reports transpired that Wanderers have not been able to pay their coaches for four months due to cash-flow problems.
The Nomads are expected to re-group next week.
