Civil Sporting Club have tied head coach Franco Ndawa to a three-year contract three months after being engaged on caretaker basis.
Civil Sporting club general secretary Thomas Makiwa confirmed the development, saying it has taken long as the sponsors Office of the President and Cabinet was looking at finer details of his recruitment.
Makiwa said OPC had not set targets as a condition in the three-year contract.
“Coach Ndawa has been offered a three-year contract by OPC but there’s no strings attached because they don’t want to put him under unnecessary pressure,” Makiwa said.
“However as Civil Sporting Club we will discuss with him to have a performance-related contract. We expect the team to be winning games and challenge for trophies.”
The former Nyasa Big Bullets, Mighty Be Forward, Red Lions, Tigers and Silver Strikers coach confirmed the development but he said was yet to sign pending a legal advice from his lawyer.
The soft spoken coach has since assured to transform the team from fighting relegation last season as he has so far recorded a 1-0 against former club Red Lions, a three-all draw against Blue Eagles and a 4-2 whacking of rookies Chitipa United in the last three league games.
“Under my guidance I don’t want to be fighting relegation. I want to sustain the good performance,” he said.
Ndawa was fired at Bullets last season in a controversial manner following the departure of former chairman Sam Chilunga who initiated his recruitment.
