Be Forward Wanderers Coach, Yasin Osman, who is ill, has reportedly been given a four-week bed rest.
This means that Osman will miss the first week of training when the Nomads regroup on March 6.
Due to the illness, Osman missed Wanderers’ home game against AS Vita of the Democratic Republic of Congo on Wednesday in the Caf Champions League.
Wanderers lost 1-2 in the second-leg match of the preliminary round to exit the continental competition 6-1 on aggregate, after losing 4-0 in the first-leg in Kinshasa.
The club’s Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, said Osman was discharged hours before the game against Vita.
“I was in touch with him on Thursday and he said he was feeling well but after consulting his family and relatives, they recommended that our coach should not do anything to do with the crowd and anything that can cause him to worry.
“Actually on Tuesday, he phoned me to say that he would be eager to be on the technical bench but we didn’t want to give him pressure because we knew that progressing to the next round of the competition was a tall order. I can assure the Nomads’ family that our coach will be available next season,” Mkandawire said.
The Nomads will resume pre-season training on March 6 ahead of the kick off of the season in April.
