Malawi football champions Bullets FC have hinted on the touchline return of Burundian expatriate coach Nsazwirwimo Ramadhan and possible sponsorship deal.
Ramadhan has been working behind the scene with Lloyd Nkhwazi as he cannot be on the touchline because of lack of work permit.
The Burundian was also arrested by Malawi’s Immigration for flouting laws to permit him to stay and work in the country three weeks ago.
But Bullets FC Vice-General Secretary Kelvin Moyo hinted that Ramadhan would resume his normal work in the second round of the TNM Super League.
“We are happy with the performance of the team so far. It is our wish to maintain the unbeaten run as we expect to have an expatriate coach when the second round resumes,” Moyo said in an interview with Nyasa Times.
Moyo, however, declined to shed more light on the position of Ramadhan regarding his arrest.
“That issue is being worked on. I don’t know why it should be of concern because that’s a private matter,” he said.
Ramadhan has been training the team illegally because he does not have a work permit. He rejoined Bullets from South African club in October last year under the team’s former chairman Kondie Msungama.
But the Burundian had fallen out with the incumbent committee after Msungama was forced to step down following allegations of gross financial mismanagement.
Meanwhile, reports indicate that Bullets chairman Sam Chilunga has hinted of landing new sponsorship deal.
“Internal squabbles damaged the reputation of the club and that is what we are building now. Trust me, we will hit the jackpot soon. Take me seriously on this,” said Chilunga as quoted in the press,
Half way through the current season, Bullets top the table and without a loss.
