TNM Super League defending champions, Be Forward Wanderers, resumed training Wednesday, a day after the burial of the club’s technical director, Jack Chamangwana, in Blantyre.

The Nomads Team Manager, Steve Madeira, admitted that it was tough returning to training, just a day after the burial ceremony.

“Of course, morale is not that high as we are still mourning our legend Jack but we had a meeting with the players and we agreed to fight for victory in our next assignment,” he said.

Madeira said the players and coaches are aware that their fans were unhappy with the team’s performance.

The Lali Lubani Road side has a crucial away Airtel Top 8 first-leg quarter-final fixture against revived Kamuzu Barracks on Sunday at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.

The Nomads suffered a shock 2-0 loss to Azam Tigers at Mulanje Park Stadium before sharing the spoils with minnows Karonga United last Sunday in the league.

The 0-0 draw against Karonga at Balaka Stadium irked some fans who called for the resignation of the coaching panel.

The Nomads are on position five, with eight points from five games.

In a separate interview, Wanderers Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, vowed to defend the league championship and win, at least, two cups in honour of the late Chamangwana.

“When we started this year, we had a strategic plan, outlining that we should defend the league title and win two cups. We were doing all this with [the late] Jack. So, we would like to defend the league and win two cups in honour of Jack because we were planning together. Technically, he assured us that this was possible because of the quality of players we have,” he said.

Last season, Wanderers also vowed to win t h e league championship when Chamangwana’s nephew and the team’s former chairperson, George, died.
