Nyasa Big Bullets’ Executive Committee has recalled Coach, Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan, from suspension.
Ramadhan received a four-game suspension, which ended on Sunday when Bullets lost 2-1 to Silver Strikers at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
Bullets interim General Secretary, Albert Chigoga, on Tuesday said they recalled the coach after looking at several factors. Reports suggest that some players are against Ramadhan’s return.
“It is largely speculative that the players do not want the coach reinstated. This decision was made by the executive and it is the same executive that can either rescind it or not.
“Looking at several factors, and also in respect of the agreement which we made with the coach when he was suspended, it was only necessary to bring him back” Chigoda said.
He further said it was at the Burundian’s discretion to return or not.
“Yes, the coach has been told about the news [his recall] but he will not resume his duties immediately as he has other family matters to attend to outside the country. It is natural that such news brings relief, so the coach felt the same way, but it is now up to him to protect his job or mess it up,” Chigoga said.
The coach was not ready to comment on the matter when contacted yesterday.
“I am still in bed, call another time,” said Ramadhan, who was suspended following the team’s poor run of form.
Assistant Coach, Elia Kananji, is in charge of Bullets but he does not possess the Caf B Licence required for a Super League head coach.
