Be Forward Wanderers say there is no pressure to replace Stevie Madeira who resigned as team manager last week.
In an interview yesterday, Wanderers general secretary (GS) Mike Butao said they are focusing on winning games.
“All is good. No pressure to recruit a team manager to replace Madeira.
“Our focus now is on winning the forthcoming games and having a good time,” he said.
Madeira stepped down following pressure from a section of the team’s supporters who accused the executive committee of favouring him when he was spared after some members of the technical panel were fired and suspended due to poor results.
Reacting to the supporters’ call, Madeira resigned on May 21 with a condition that the team should refund him K7 million it owes him within 72 hours.
“After a careful consideration, friends and family advice, I write to notify you that—I am stepping down from Be Wanderers with immediate effect. The accusations of me being a confusionist and political issues surrounding this huge club are primary reasons for my stepping down,” reads part of his resignation letter.
Meanwhile, Madeira yesterday said the Nomads are yet to refund him the money and is scheduled to meet the club’s chairperson and general secretary next week Tuesday on the issue.
“They have not yet paid me and I am planning to meet them on Tuesday as I am away in the Northern Region,” he said.
Butao declined to comment on the issue of Madeira’s refund claim yesterday.
