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
