Azam Tigers have named Gerald Phiri as their new head coach with the former Mighty Wanderers and Big Bullets mentor signing a three-year contract deal.
Phiri will take charge of the Kau-Kau boys and is yet to name his backroom staff, Tigers technical director Robin Alufandika confirmed.
He replaces Franco Ndawa who was sacked recently.
Alufandika said Phiri has been given a target to “finish in the top three of the Super League and win at least one or two cups.”
Phiri’s last job was at Wanderers last season from Bullets where he served as head coach the previous year. He resigned at Wanderers following a string of poor results that had some Nomads fans baying for his blood.
Tigers manager Steve Madeira said they are “delighted to secure a man of Gerald Phiri’s calibre.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
