It never rain but pours on the TNM Super League and Carlsberg Cup Champions Big Bullets FC a head of its CAF Champions League participation scheduled to start next month as it has been revealed that second assistant coach Elijah Kananji has resigned.
Confirming the development in an interview with the press over the Weekend, Kananji said the failure by the team’s management to meet his demand has forced him to resign.
“I wanted Bullets to consider my package because I have a family to look after. What is the point of working for such a big club when I can’t afford to bring food on the table?” Kananji told the Press.
On his part, Big Bullets Chairman Kondi Msungama denied to give more details on the resignation of Kananji.
Bullets demoted Kananji from head coach to second assistant coach and his position was taken up by Burundian coach Nsanzarwimo Ramadhan.
This was done in accordance with CAF rules which do not allow anyone without CAF licence to coach a team taking part in the tournament.
In a related development, Big Bullets defender Sankhani Mkandawire has changed his earlier decision to quit from playing in the People’s team.
Big Bullets technical director Billy Tewetsa confirmed of the development in an interview with the privately owned radio (ZBS).
