Southern Region Football Association League champions Max Bullets have announced the appointment of controversial coach Leo Mpulula as their head coach as they embark on their first ever top flight league journey.
Club Director Max Kapanda confirmed Mpulula’s appointment on Thursday.
Kapanda believes Mpulula who among other teams formerly coached Azam Tigers and Blantyre United is capable and will manage the team better having previously worked with the club and produced positive results.
“We have chosen Mpulula because he once worked with us, helped us and that he is qualified,” said Kapanga.
“He also has a Caf B Licence as required by the club licensing rules. Suppose this was not one of the requirements in club licensing, we could have coached the team on our own,” he added.
According to Kapanga, Mpulula who has a running contract with Epac F.C until February 26th, 2016, will straight away join Bullets and commence his tasks.
Max Bullets will be using Chiwembe Technical Centre Ground as their training field and game venue for small league matches while big matches will be played at Kamuzu stadium this is according to Kapanda.
Meanwhile, the club is called upon all talented players who wish to undergo trials at the club to report for training at Chiwembe ground on 2nd February, 2015 at 9:00am.
