Burundian coach Ramadhan accuses Malawi fans of discrimination

Burundian coach Nsazwirwimo Ramadhan put to the test Malawi’s so called ‘Warm Heart of Africa’ slogan for being friendly by accusing Malawian  football fans of  abusing him during his team Big Bullets and Kamuzu Barracks game on Sunday at Dedza Stadium.

Ramadhan, who is based in South Africa returned three weeks ago to Malawi for a second stint at Bullets in a bid to help the team’s title bid.

An emotional Ramadhan, who has put Bullets back on track with back-to-back wins since rejoining the team said he was called a foreigner by Malawi Defence Force (MDF) sponsored Kamuzu Barracks fans including soldiers.

“I don’t know what’s wrong with you Malawians. How can you call me a foreigner?” Ramadhan said.

“I thought soldiers are supposed to be disciplined. Why insulted me like this?”

He said the situation was counterproductive to football development saying the standards of football in the country could not improve if there were no foreign players or coaches to help.

“This is why football in Malawi cannot improve. In South Africa, Zimbabwe, US, Europe there are many foreign players and coaches who play a key role in improving the standards  of football,” he said.

Bullets lost 1-0 in a highly temperamental match which sent the TNM Super League wide open after hot contenders Moyale Barracks beat Silver Strikers 1-0 and Blue Eagles’ victory over Mafco.

However the Super League of Malawi (Sulom) governing body said it would investigate the situation.

Honestly speaking i dont have respect for soldiers in malawi. Most of them are for 4 dropouts and akapita ku army amafuna adzilimbana ndi ma civilians munseu. Why cant they test their strength by fighting Tanzania ngati ali madolo. ? Chonde agalu inu musatinyatse apa . Actually nchito yausilikali ndiyogwila munthu alibe kulowera..FULLSTOP

Too much respect to foreigners is what is killing our football in Malawi. A foreigner is a foreigner there is no other name. And for his own information Burundians are taking Malawians for a ride. So they think Malawi is their home country? kkkkkkkkkkkk.

Do not say he has put BB on top. That is misleading. Much as i do not support racism he is a spent force and needs no credit. Let him just go.
