Civo United have advertised the position of coach for the club.
Civo general secretary Rashid Ntelera confirmed the news on Tuesday, saying they want transparency, hence the advert.
He, however, dismissed reports that they in talks with Blantyre United mentor Elia Kananji.
“The fact that we have advertised the position is enough evidence that we are not in talks with Mr. Kananji. If Mr. Kananji wishes to coach Civo, he will have to apply. We are a transparent club; we do not do things in the dark,” said Ntelera.
He said as a government-sponsored team, there are no short cuts in the administration of the club.
Meanwhile, the club has regrouped in preparation for the Presidential and Standard Bank cups, according to Ntelera.
“We have regrouped and new players are being tried. We need to beef up the defence and the midfield. Last season, we could score goals, but then we could concede late in the game and that cost us points. We are seeking to buy a couple of defenders,” said Ntelera.
He said caretaker coach Thom Nkorongo is in charge of players’ recruitment exercise.
Ntelera could, however, not say what role Nkorongo will play when the club recruits a new coach.
“We have to decide whether to release him or find a new role for him at the club. We’ll make that decision as an executive committee when we employ a new coach,” he said.
