Big Bullets have intensified the hunt for a new coach to replace Gerald Phiri Snr who stepped down after their final Super League match.
The People’s Team general secretary Higger Mkandawire said they are still consulting, but they should appoint a new coach soon.
“There are quite a number of names that have been thrown into fray, but we want to appoint a suitable tactician who will be able to rejuvenate the team.
“We also want to start preparations for next season in good time and we are hopeful of taking part in the newly introduced Zambezi Challenge Cup because we have a huge fan base that will vote for us,” said Mkandawire.
Currently, Bullets have Lloyd Nkhwazi, Fundi Akidu and Swadick Sanudi as assistant coaches.
Bullets won one silverware, the Presidential Cup, last season and finished the league on eighth position.
In his parting shot, Phiri urged the club to put its house in order if it is to restore its lost glory.
“There is a lot of in-house fighting and divisions in the team and such a situation cannot provide a conducive environment for any team to do well,” Phiri said.
