Yasin Osman faces player selection headache


Be Forward Wanderers Coach, Yasin Osman, has admitted that he faces headache in selecting players that he should offload from the team.

Wanderers Executive Committee asked the coaching panel to identify players that can either be loaned out or dropped from the team.

Last month, Wanderers roped in seven new players from Azam Tigers and Premier Bet Wizards in preparation for Confederation of African Football (Caf) Champions League games and 2018 season.


Osman said the performance of players in friendly matches against UD Songo in Mozambique and Masters Security FC suggests that there is stiff competition for places.

“The two games have created good competition among the players as each one wants to prove his worth. However, much as this is good for our preparations for the Caf assignments, it is us the coaches who will have a tough time in making the selection. Even the new players have adapted to Wanderers’ style of play very well and fast,” he said.

Meanwhile, Rafik Mussa and Kondwani Lufeyo have joined Masters Security Services from Wanderers while Khumbo Ng’ambi might be loaned out to rookies Karonga United.


Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, said despite their improved performance, the team has no choice but lay off some players.

He said the team cannot keep over 30 players.

Meanwhile, the Nomads face hosts Mangochi Select in another friendly match this Saturday.

Wanderers are expected to face AS Vita of the Democratic Republic of Congo away on February 9 in the first-leg of the Champions League’s preliminary round.
