Be Forward Wanderers coach Eddingtone Ng’onamo believes he and his backroom staff, have passed the test having won four of the five-game target set by the club’s executive committee.
After a string of poor results, at the end of May, the Nomads executive committee reshuffled its technical panel and gave it a five-game ultimatum with an undisclosed win rate. The deadline expired last Sunday.
“We have won four games [three in the TNM Super League and the other in Presidential Cup] and we lost once in a Presidential Cup semi-final match against Moyale [1-0].
“To me, it represents a 75 percent win rate which is quite good, but the ball is in the executive committee’s court to decide on whether we have met their expectations,” said Ng’onamo in an interview yesterday.
The Nomads beat Red Lions 3-1, MTV Max Bullets 2-0 and more recently, Azam Tigers 2-1 in league matches. They also beat Max 2-1 in the Presidential Cup.
In setting the target, Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao said: “We have given the panel a specific number of games with a minimum win percentage in those games. This is a challenge and it is the yardstick we will use to change their status from interim panel to permanent panel or from interim panel to former panel.”
However, asked yesterday on the way forward, Butao said: “We will release a statement when we are good and ready.”
