Former Mighty Be Forward Wanderers coach Elias Kananji’s return to archrivals Nyasa Big Bullets will not be that easy as he is bound by the contract obligation at the time he parted ways with the club three weeks ago.
Kananji has rejoined Bullets but the Nomads contract restrict him from joining any club within three months after leaving the club.
A top Bullets official confirms the development that Kananji has indeed rejoined the club but there is a lot of work to be done to secure his clearance from Wanderers.
“It’s true that he has rejoined the club but unofficially because he would be working behind the scenes as a contract at Wanderers stipulates that he cannot work anywhere within three months after leaving the club,” said the official.
He said Kananji was recommended by the incumbent coaching panel of head coach Lloyd Nkhwazi and assistant Mabvuto Lungu.
“We are trying to talk to Wanderers to see how far we can go to secure his clearance,” Bullets official said.
He said Kananji would have beefed up the coaching panel in their quest to defend the league title for the forth consecutive time with just 6 games to go.
“The coaches and Kananji have worked together and know each other better. So they felt his coming would have made a difference.”
In a related development, he also denied former Malawi national football team coach Burundian Nsazwirwimo Ramadhan’s claims that he was never contacted by the team.
“Those who know Ramadhan will know that we contacted him.That’s how he works.”
Ramadhan took to the social media accusing Bullets of lying that he was not interested in the job.
“I would like to inform my fans that Nyasa Bullets never contacted me. What they are saying that I refused is a big lie,” Ramadhan wrote on his Facebook Page.
