Former Big Bullets coach Elia Kananji, who steered the team to their first TNM Super League glory in a decade, will now be deputising Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan as the team will be participation in the 2015 Confederation of Africa (CAF) Club Championship.
Bullets have also added Lloyd Nkhwazi to Ramadhan’s backroom staff.
According to Bullets’ general secretary Harold Fote, they have demoted Kananji due to some coaching qualification hitches pertaining to the requirements in the CAF Championships.
“Kananji has no CAF coaching licence to be used during the CAF Championship,” said Fote.
However, Nkhwazi has the CAF licences but was overlooked ahead of Burundian tactician Ramadhan, ho won Bullets three league titles between 1997 and 2001.
Fote said promoting Nkhwazi “could be perceived as demeaning Kananji, his boss in the previous technical panel. We have, therefore, opted for Ramadhan as head coach to avoid the conflict that could possibly ensue.”
According to Fote, Ramadhan and Nkhwazi will be allowed to be on the touchline during Bullets’ games in the continental showpiece as per the requirements in CAF competitions.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
