Barely three weeks after he was sacked at Mighty Wanderers, Frank â€˜Fancoâ€™ Ndawa is set to be taken on board as head coach by TNM Super League reigning champions, Silver Strikers.
The Bankersâ€™ vice-chairperson Daud Ntanthiko confirmed the news on Monday whereas Ndawa could not be reached for comment.
Said Ntanthiko: â€œIt is very true that we are in the process of hiring Mr. Ndawa. I would say administratively, negotiations are still going on, but in principle, yes, we are hiring him.â€
But Ntanthiko could not be drawn to comment on what will happen to the incumbent head coach Thom Mkorongo.
â€œAll I can say for now is that we are in the process of reviewing our coaching panel.â€
He also defended the move to engage Ndawa, saying the fact that Wanderers terminated his contract due to poor results does not mean that he is a failure.
â€œI would not want to speak on behalf of Wanderers because there might have been factors that contributed to his [Ndawaâ€™s] failure to perform. Similarly, I can be dismissed at my current workplace, but that does not mean I cannot work effectively elsewhere,â€ said Ntanthiko.
The Bankers are currently at the summit of the flagship league with 31 points from 14 games.
Ndawa is reported to have watched the Bankersâ€™ Super League game against Mafco on Sunday from the terraces.
