Judge me—Yasin Osman


Be Forward Wanderers’ Coach Yasin Osman is convinced that 2016 was a fantastic season for the Nomads, but he insisted that people will be the best judges of his performance.

“If you ask me how I can rate my performance as a coach since taking over, I will say I don’t know. In the 15 league games the team has played under my management, we have only lost twice and drawn once, so you can be my judge on that,” he said.

Osman, who took over from Eddingtone Ng’onamo in October, guided Nomads to a sixth-place finish in the league and Fisd Challenge Cup glory. Ng’onamo and Elia Kananji steered Wanderers to the Carlsberg Cup triumph.


Osman said the team will, in the next campaign, build on the just-ended season’s success and challenge for the Super League title, which they last won in 2006.

Nomads rounded off their 2016 TNM Super League campaign with a 1-1 draw against 10- man Mzuni FC at Mzuzu Stadium on Saturday.

Nigerian Amos Bello headed the Blantyre-based side into the lead in the 48th minute, but substitute Zelliat Nkhoma equalised 20 minutes later.


This was the third time in a row that Nomads failed to beat Mzuni.

Mzuni Coach Alex Ngwira, whose side was reduced to 10 men in the 39th minute after defender Khumbo Banda was dismissed for a second bookable offence, conceded that the team’s second-round performance was pathetic.

“The campaign had two different halves for us. We started the league very well, sitting at the summit of the league standings for a couple of weeks. The second round was simply pathetic for Mzuni,” he explained.

“We collected four points from six opening games of the league’s second- round and it was hard for us to keep the momentum we had in the first round. The staff-sit.”
