Former Mighty Wanderers FC coach Franco Ndawa has said he is not bitter with the clubâ€™s decision to sack him.
The former Under-20 national team coach refused to comment on reports that the club owes him millions in outstanding dues, insisting that they had come to a mutual agreement not to comment on contractual issues.
The Nomads fired Ndawa, team manager McHodges Chunga and his assistant Coxley Kamange on Monday following a string of poor results that culminated in their fourth successive loss to Blantyre United on Sunday.
The Sunday loss resulted in a section of the clubâ€™s faithful calling for his removal.
Sounding calm in an interview from Zomba on Wednesday, Ndawa said: â€œI am not bitter with their decision to relieve me of their duties. It could be a blessing in disguise. Everything happens for a reason and maybe it is Godâ€™s plan that I should part ways with the club at this point.â€
On reports surrounding his outstanding dues, Ndawa said: â€œIt was agreed during a meeting we had yesterday [Tuesday] that both parties should not say anything and I would rather stick to that agreement. So, I would say there is no conflict whatsoever.â€
The Nomads general secretary David Kanyenda, who doubles as legal adviser, also refused to comment on whether Ndawa was on contract and if at all he is owed dues.
Asked why Ndawaâ€™s assistant Fosiko was spared when he was part and parcel of the coaching panel, Kanyenda said: â€œAVB (Andre Villas-Boas) was sacked at Chelsea whereas his assistant Roberto Di Matteo was spared.â€
The Nomads also announced that they have appointed Fosiko as head coach in an acting capacity and that he will be assisted by youth team coach Albert Mpinganjira while Chiyembekezo Zidana has been appointed team manager.
