Football Association of Malawi (FAM) yesterday summoned Big Bullets FC after coach Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan lodged a complaint against the club for failure to honour his contract as well as the hostile reception he got from some fans recently.
FAM chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda confirmed having met the two parties yesterday morning following a complaint lodged by Ramadhan’s representatives Kelvin Moyo and Felix Sapao.
“It is an on-going issue, but we called Bullets in order to get their side of the story following Ramadhan’s complaint. He even threatened to report the matter to Fifa,” said Nyirenda.
The FAM CEO also said they would like to act as an arbitrator.
“We would like to see if we can find a solution before they explore other avenues,” he said.
Bullets acting chairperson Sadik Malinga confirmed having attended the meeting saying they are trying to sort out the issue amicably.
“As I said, he is still our coach, but there are other technical issues in the contract that we want to be reviewed,” he said.
On his part, Moyo said: “It was a fruitful meeting. Bullets want the contract reviewed and we have asked them to make a fresh offer.”
Ramadhan has not been paid by Bullets since he signed a two-year contract which runs from January 1 2015 to December 31 2016.
He has also not been reporting for duties since he was chased from the team’s training venue, Kamuzu Stadium, by some fans.
