- Agree it has technical flaws
Big Bullets FC and their coach Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan’s agents have agreed to terminate his two-year contract with the hope of offering him a fresh one that will serve the interests of both parties.
The development follows advice given by the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) after noting that the current contract has some technical flaws.
FAM chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda confirmed offering advice to the two parties on the way forward following the meeting they had.
One of Ramadhan’s agents, Kelvin Moyo, yesterday claimed that the two parties had agreed to pay the Burundian tactician his arrears for four months and then start afresh.
“It was observed during the meeting that performance indicators were not factored in the current contract which is not in line with modern contracts across the world. Bullets [also] suggested that considering their current financial problems, they would be comfortable with a performance-based contract.
“So, the way forward is that Ramadhan is flexible, but Bullets should first of all clear the arrears and then make a fresh offer that should include his accommodation and work permit,” said Moyo.
He also said his client is ready to resume work as long as the two parties agree.
“However, we are waiting to get a feedback from Bullets [acting] chairperson Sadik Malinga who said the issue would have to be referred to the team’s executive committee to determine the way forward,” said Moyo.
Malinga could not be reached for comment yesterday, but he confirmed to The Nation on Sunday that they were supposed to meet yesterday.
“The final determination will be made at that meeting, suffice to say it was unfortunate that we offered him such kind of money when we have no steady source of income.
“I will brief the executive on the resolutions of the meeting we had and then get their views on how we should proceed,” said Malinga.
