Former Big Bullets coach Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan will arrive in the country tomorrow to discuss his imminent return to the side.
Bullets chairperson Kondi Msungama said after the contractual talks, the Burundian national will return to his base in Durban, South Africa, where he coaches a lower-division club, to wait for a work permit.
Two days ago, online publication Nyasa Times reported that the former Burundi national team coach was in the dark over Bullets’ interest to reengage him, but Msungama insists that they have been in touch with Ramadhan over the issue.
“He is expected in the country this Friday. We will have a meeting this weekend to discuss some contractual issues with him before he returns to his base,” Msungama said.
Bullets would like to employ Ramadhan as head coach while Blantyre United trainer Elijah Kananji and the current Bullets assistant coach Mabvuto Lungu are to become his deputies.
According to Msungama, they expect Ramadhan to be in charge of the team during their forthcoming trip to South Africa for preseason games.
Ramadhan coached Bullets between 1997 and 2000 when he helped the team win the Super League title for three consecutive seasons before he joined Mighty Wanderers in 2001. He was fired from both clubs under mysterious circumstances before he went to coach in Botswana in 2002.
Ramadhan’s choice comes at a time Bullets are trying their best to end a league title drought that spans about a decade.
