Burundian consultant coach Nsazuwrimo Ramadhan has been hired as Big Bullets head coach as the club prepares for the 2015 Caf Champions League preliminary round matches.
Bullets general secretary Harold Fote confirmed to Nyasa Times that a deal has been agreed with Ramadhan to be their tactician.
After Coach Elia Kananji guided the Bullets to 2014 TNM Super League championship, the Bullets chairperson Kondie Msungama said the contracts of the coaching panel had ended with the season on December 6 2014.
The Kananji panel comprised team manager Fundi Akidu, assistant coaches Lloyd Nkhwazi and Mabvuto Lungu.
Ramadhan was drafted in towards the end as consultant coach.
Fote said Ramadan has been “confirmed in the position as head coach.”
Bullets secretary general said their Burundian coach is “focused, very driven and very determined,”
Ramadhan will be receiving less than K500 000 a month.
“Ramadhan demanded more than K500 000 salary, excluding game bonuses at the start of the 2014 season, but now he has accepted to adjust and go low,” said Fote about Ramadhan, who won Bullets three league titles between 1997 and 2001.
Fote, however, was not clear on what role will Kananji play in the new technical panel.
He disclosed that Bullets have so far roped in the services of Karonga United striker Peter Mwangosi.
The Bullets travel to Comoros on the weekend of February 13 2015 for a preliminary round first leg against Fomboni Club de Moheil before hosting the Comoros giant in the reverse fixture after a fortnight.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
