‘Big Bullets not recruiting new coach’

Despite speculations linking several coaches to TNM Super League champions, Big Bullets, the club’s chairperson Sam Chilunga has ruled out the possibility of recruiting a new coach.

Kinnah Phiri and Franco Ndawa have recently been linked with Bullets as replacements for former head coach, Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan, who is now serving as Flames’ assistant coach.

However, Chilunga said the club had put faith in the current coaching panel comprising Mabvuto Lungu, Lloyd Nkhwazi and Swadick Sanudi.

“When you have a coach what you want are results. These coaches are giving us results, so let’s wait and see. These guys have been there, they worked with Ramadhan and they know the team inside-out. Recently, people were doubting us that we can’t beat Mafco, but what I saw was encouraging,” he said.

However, Chilunga was coy to reveal who had been given the responsibility to lead the coaching panel.

“We have a strategy for each and every game. In each and every game, we know who is in charge. We have 13 games remaining in the league and three in the Standard Bank Knock- Out Cup. We are very positive we are going to win the rest of the games, so we are very comfortable with our current situation,” he added.

Kinnah, who was last Saturday spotted at Chitowe Ground where Bullets were playing Mafco, said his presence had nothing to do with the Bullets job.

Bullets captain, Fischer Kondowe, also told Times Television last week that the players were satisfied with the leadership of their current coaches.

In their first match in charge of Bullets, Lungu and Nkhwazi lost 2-1 to rivals, Be Forward Wanderers in the Carlsberg Cup final on August 29, 2015.

Bullets are the only unbeaten side in the league and they are seven points clear of second-placed Azam Tigers with 35 points from 15 matches.
