Be Forward Wanderers’ Executive Committee has given the Yasin Osman-led coaching panel a five-game ultimatum to either win or risk facing the axe.
This follows the defending champions’ slow start to the season which has seen them losing 2-0 to Tigers FC at Mulanje Park Stadium on Tuesday.
Despite coming from a goal down to beat Silver Strikers 2-1 in the league’s opener, Wanderers’ performance has been unconvincing.
The Nomads struggled to beat minnows Masters Security 1-0 and drew 0-0 with rivals Nyasa Big Bullets who dominated the match played at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.
Wanderers Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, Thursday said they gave the coaches an ultimatum because they have everything, including quality players.
Mkandawire also questioned the coaching panel’s player-selection.
“After playing against AS Vita [of the Democratic Republic of Congo] in the Caf Champions League, we have been struggling. We needed to do something because we are under pressure from the Wanderers’ family. We have bought quality players but we do not seem to have good combinations of players,” Mkandawire said.
Osman, who earned Wanderers their first league title in 11 years last season, after the loss to Tigers, urged his charges to step up their performance.
The Nomads are on sixth position on the log table with seven points from four matches, three points from leaders Tigers.
“We are on contract and we hope everything will follow the conditions of the contract. Anything contrary to that would be a breach of the contract,” Osman said.
He wondered as to what would become of their future if they win the five games and lose the seventh match.
The Nomads won the championship last season despite losing thrice to Civil Sporting Club, Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers.
Elsewhere, Masters Security have also suspended Coach, Abasi Makawa, for a month over alleged insubordination, barely three weeks into the new season.
