Mighty legend Fredrick Kashimoto has cautiously welcomed the appointed of Portuguese Paulo Jorge Silva as new Mufulira Wanderers coach.

Wanderers have engaged experienced Silva on a two year contract as head coach.

Silva takes over from Chewe Mulenga who has been working in an acting capacity after Manfred Chabinga’s departure.

Ex-Mighty midfielder and coach Kashimoto said:”It is good they have brought this coach but let’s wait and see how he is going to perform.”

“It is not just a matter of bringing a foreign coach. Does Wanderers have the right material to help the new coach produce good results?”

Kashimoto believes Wanderers should have given interim coaches Mulenga and Moses Kashimoto more time to drill Wanderers.

“We should trust in local coaches. The two local coaches should have been given more time to train the team,” the veteran coach said.

Silva is a UEFA B licence holder who has coached top teams in Africa such as Ghana club Hearts of Oak, Esperance of Tunisia, COD of Nigeria and Dynamos of Zimbabwe.

He has a task of steering Wanderers who are lying on 12 position just one point from the relegation zone with 18 points from 16 games

  1. I hope that results will start coming after the break. Mighty have drawn too many games and need to start winning home and away. We welcome our your new Gaffer and wish him all the best and as Mighty supporters shall give him full support.


  2. All what the new coach needs is our support as Mighty lovers not those who want to start talking about the new coach. Let’s give him space for now as ba Kashimoto was given an opportunity but he failed.


  3. Giving chance to local coaches should not mean you sacrifice the team. Mighty doesn’t play football to make up the numbers. This is a team of winners. Do you want to continue experimenting while the team continues to lose? This attitude is what makes us flop all the time. We need managers who are hungry for glory. Thats why Real Madrid fire coaches for winning one trophy only because they are hungry for glory
