Nyasa Big Bullets official are indicating that their head coach Rodgers Yasin  is a ‘dead man walking’ at the club and expect him to be sacked before the new season kicks-off.

Bullets coach Rodgers Yasin: It will be ruthless to fire me

Yasin whose highest qualification is a CAF A licence, was hired  to replace Burundian Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan as head coach as  assistant coach Eliah Kananji  does not possess CAF B licence, which is the minimum qualification for a Super League coach.

Both Bullets chairperson Noel Lipipa and  general secretary (GS) Albert Chigoga have confirmed that Yasin is under scrutiny and they cannot guarantee that he will take charge of the team for the next season.

Lipipa said the future of Yasin as Bullets head coach looked in huge doubt, saying the executive committee will meet to analyse the People’s Team performance under him.

He said there are calls from “some quarters” that Bullets should hire another coach.

“After out meeting, we would decide on how to  strengthen our  technical panel,” said Lipipa.

He said Bullets need to get  back to its  glory again.

On his part, Chigoga said Yasin could get the boot.

“We will analyse whether we need to hire the new coach or not,” he said.

But Yasin said it will be “ruthless” to sack him.

“I believe we did well because  we won 12 games and drew three matches in the second-round when i joined,” he said.

The underfire coach said he was working without formal contract  having served as technical committee head the previous season alongside Gilbert Chirwa, Thom Kazembe and Enos Chatama.

Yasin played for Bullets between 1981 and 1986 before he joined Mighty Wanderers whe he had a short stint. He was also an on-and-off Flames player between 1979 and 1983.

He also served in the technical panel of the now defunct Escom United FC.

This is the coach who had brought results to Bullets family and firing him Will be a great disaster. Give him a chance come next season the bullets will be the champions and winning more trophies. Kananji is nothing but adull coach and knows nothing. Leave Yasin where he is just give him support.

Zifukwa zomuchosera Yasin sindikuziona. Honestly this man demonstrated that he is even better than other local famous coaches. Winning 12 games and only drawing 3 is not a mean achievement. Bullets are not like Man City of England that they should have won all games in second round. Mind you, this joined Bullets when they were 9 points adrift Wanderers. Akanakhala coach wina Bullets ikanasalira ndi ma points ambiri to Noma mene league yathamu. Nde inu a executive please be reasonable with your judgment. Masapota are not technical people, to them they associate him wanderers’ Yasin Osman. Akuona ngati ali… Read more »

So you have decided to blame the coach for your pathetic season? You should be some certifiable imbeciles! You are where you are because of this coach….. You lost the league in the first round.. Had it not been for Rodgers you would have been nowhere close to top eight. Surely it will be ruthless to fire the coach. Do it at your own peril as you will be starting all over again. Imbeciles!!! Imbeciles!! And don’t you dare tell me about Elia… He is just a novice…a novice without papers. Imbeciles!!!

Milward, you are a man plus and your reasoning is superb. In any case both Lipipa or lipapa, and Albert Chigoga are illegitimate to run the affairs of the Club since there mandate got expired. What we know is Bullets is still under the Trusteeship and the Peoples Team. They should know and be told that that they are walking under close scrutiny and time bomb!!! .
Bola Yasin anasewreko Bullets and he has what it takes to coach the Club!!! Mark my words.
