Foreign coaches Rahman Gumbo and Nsazurwimo Ramadhan have emerged as some of the coaches linked with the vacant Azam Tigers job.
Zimbabwean Gumbo and Ramadhan from Burundi, had successful stints with Mighty Wanderers and Big Bullets.
Tigers general secretary Geoff Kachale confirmed that they are in touch with the two coaches through the club’s chairperson Sydney Chikoti.
“When they [Gumbo and Ramadhan] heard that we are looking for a coach, they got in touch with our chairperson and talks are currently under way.
“However, we are mindful on whether we would be able to sustain them and those are some of the issues that will have to be considered,” said Kachale.
The Tigers GS said their options are open.
“We are also mindful of the fact that we have a number of talented local coaches and, hopefully, by next week we should have a short-list,” said Kachale.
Gumbo led the Nomads to their last Super League championship glory in 2006 while Ramadhan won a number of league honours and silverware while with Bullets. Gumbo is currently in his native Zimbabwe while Ramadhan was reported to be in South Africa.
The Kau-Kau boys coaching job fell vacant following the expiry of Leo Mpulula’s contract recently. Mpulula said he did not intend to renew his contract after what he described as a frustrating spell.
