Betway Power Shows Mchuda Exit Door

NBL five-time champions Betway Power have parted ways with head coach Arnold ‘Mchuda’ Lando after a false start this season.

Mchuda’s sacking comes in the wake of the team’s 70-82 loss to newcomers UPDF Tomahawks.

He has seen Power endure their worst ever start in the league having lost their opening five games. Before UPDF, they earlier lost to KIU Titans, Ndejje Angels, JKL Dolphins and City Oilers.

This has left the club rooted second from the bottom, with no hope of light at the end of the tunnel.

With the club yet to come out publicly, a source has told The-SportsNation that Bernice Ankunda and Carol Bisereko have been given the oar to steer the club forward.

Sacking Was Inevitable!

Are Power taking Mchuda as a scape goat for their recent poor decisions?

Power made overhaul changes in their roster when they let go of their team’s core with long serving small forward Joseph Ikong leading the great trek.

Come the new shortened season, the club’s transfer market then left a lot to be desired after the club purchased mostly less tested players like Adnan Kabuye, Elvis Ssentongo, Patrick Seduge etc.

There is visibly no chemistry at all after those disjointed performances and this was known prior and this is a team that needs more time to grow together.

They have now gone from being a national powerhouse to just a mere franchise hoping that the solution to their troubles is coming at the next knee-jerk decision.

Power has to ride their luck in the remaining four games if they are to get a playoff spot – They face Namuwongo Blazers, Falcons, KCCA Panthers and UCU Canons still to come in that order.
