Seasoned coach Franco Ndawa has emerged as favourite to secure the position of head coach for Bullets FC to replace Burundian Nsazwirwimo Ramadhan.
Ndawa, who has coached a number of teams including Bullets archrivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers, Silver Strikers and Red Lions is leading a pack of wannabes in Dedza Young Soccer outspoken coach Millians Pofera Jegwe and Epac United coach Abbas Makawa.
Former Bullets and national team coach Kinnah Phiri, who is heading home after being fired at South Africa’s Free State Stars, is also touted for the position despite ruling himself out.
However, inside sources said there was mixed reaction with Ndawa’s interest.
Bullets chairperson Sam Chilunga was non-committal on the matter.
“We have several names that were thrown in that we are still discussing on who should lead the team. Otherwise it will be premature for me to publicity confirm him [Ndawa] as the new head coach because it’s not a man-show,” he said.
Ndawa has been unattached after his controversial dismissal t Azam Tigers because of his association with the national team.
Bullets are hunting for a coach ahead of the second round kick off this weekend after head coach Ramadhan was appointed assistant national team coach.
