Irish coach Evan Doran, who arrived in the country on Thursday to drill Nyasa Big Bullets technical panels, says he looks forward to working with the club.
Doran will be in Malawi for about a month to provide technical expertise to Bullets main team, reserve and the under-20 coaches.
“I’m looking forward to work with the team and my stay in Malawi,” said the former Arsenal Gap Programme student in Blantyre soon after arrival. “I’m so excited to be here and my expectations are very high.”
The Irish, who has Football Association (FA) badges, has done coaching at Arsenal Soccer Academy and Vanencia Soccer Academy.
“I have worked with many professional players and with this I know the strengths, weaknesses and how to get the best out of every player, regardless of how good or how bad they are,” Doran explained.
Doran has worked in highly regarded roles with the Premier League club in London and Barbados. He has also worked in Greece and India, among other countries.
Nyasa Big Bullets chief executive officer, Fleetwood Haiya, believes Doran’s coming to BB will immensely contribute to the team’s development.
“He has vast experience in soccer development and we have high expectations because we believe the club will learn so much from him,” said Haiya.
Doran starts his work on Friday as he is expected to be visit the main team at training in Blantyre.
