The cold war between Bullets coach Elia Kananji and tactician Nsazwarwimo Ramadhan took a new twist after the coach failed to acknowledge the role the Burundian played in helping the team to first league title in nine years.

Kananji said in a post match interview after Bullets beat hot title contenders Moyale Barracks on Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium to win the title with a game in hand that the title winning plot had been made from the start of the campaign with his backroom staff.

Kananji, who condemned Bullets executive committee’s decision to rope in the Burundian coach in October, paid tribute to the players and  assistant coach Mabvuto Lungu for playing a role to win leaving out Ramadhan.

“I would like to thank the players for working hard, assistant coach Mabvuto Lungu,  Technical Advisor Lloyd Nkwazi for helping the team to win the league title,” Kananji said.

But he applauded Bullets executive committee for entrusting him with the responsibility to take charge of Malawi’s most popular, decorated and successful football  club at the start of the season.

“I would like to express my gratitude to Bullets executive committee for taking a bold decision to appoint me as coach. I am happy that I have won the league title on my debut season, which is a perfect way of saying thank you,” said Kananji.

Ramadhan was also cautious in an interview saying that the victory was down to team work.

Bullets executive committee chairman Kondie Msungama insisted that the engagement of Ramadhan played a role in Bullets win.

“I am happy that we have won the title. I would like to say thanks to  our coaches Elia Kananji and Mabvuto Lungu for winning the Carlsberg and I would like to thank Ramadhan for helping the team to win the Super League,” said Msungama.

Most of Bullets supporters recognised Kananji as the title winning coach.

The engagement of Ramadhan on 1 October became a hot issue in the team which forced Treasurer Noel Lipipa to resign while most supporters sympathetic to Kananji called it a worst of money.

Ramadhan was engaged after the team’s bid for title hit a bad patch with inconsistent performance.

THIS IS NOT STRANGE IN THE BULLETS CAMP, I REMEMBER BACK IN THE DAYS GIRBERT CHIRWA PERFOMED VERY WELL FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS ONLY TO BE REPLACED BY KINNAH AFTER LANDING SPONSORSHIP FROM BAKILI MULUZI. BULLETS WENT ON TO PARTICIPATE IN CAF CLUBS AND KINNAH TOOK ALL THE CREDIT AT THE EXPENSE OF GILBERT.

As far I am concerned every Bullets follower including the players and executive paid tribute to their coach Elia Kananji. Bullets technical panel and Mr. Ramadhan worked together only for about a month and a couple of weeks. Before that it was Elia and his team doing the job which won BB the Carlsberg title and kept them in contention of the title from the 1st round. So there’s no doubt what great achievements Elia and his backroom staff have done. However, I can testify that in the last month or so, Bullets’ tactics have improved, taking each game as… Read more »
