Morupule Wanderers have moved swiftly to reward renowned coach, Phillimon Makwengwe, with a new contract after helping them survive relegation last season.

The Palapye-based side announced on Friday that Makwengwe has signed a two-year deal, which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2025/2026 season. “Professor Phil, Dr Phil or DaPhil as he is affectionately known in the football circles will guide Bafana Ba Magala for the next two seasons of the Botswana Football League. We are optimistic that the gaffer will turn around our fortunes after we endured tough battles at the wrong end of the table since promotion to the elite league four seasons ago. We believe his wisdom and massive experience coupled with his charm around the team will steer our ship to the battles at the top end of the Premier League table,” the club said in a statement on Friday.

Makwengwe joined Wanderers in the middle of last season from TAFIC and helped them survive the dreaded axe. Before he joined TAFIC, Makwengwe also miraculously saved Holy Ghost in the previous season. The club says the experienced gaffer aims to transform Morupule Wanderers into a formidable side that plays enterprising football, as well as build the team to a level of international competence. “This, he said, can be achieved by building winning individuals and the team through sound football administration and management,” the club said in its statement. Makwengwe has also pledged total compliance and respect of policies to work after signing the new contract. "I would surely be advising the staff (players included) on the economics of football, and conceptualising sport psychology to sustain the well being and the future of the players even outside their football careers," he said.
