What does it take to build a successful football club both on and after the field? Nyasa Bullets technical director, Billy Tewesa has been a part of winning campaign at the people’s team and explain what he believes is the highest formula to build a successful brand.
The policy for signing players at Bullets.
“At Bullets there is little room for mistakes when it comes to the signing of players as management they are constantly engaged with the coaching staff in identifying deficiencies in the squad making provision for the replacement of players who may be leaving us and identifying new players that may add value to the squad” said Tewesa.
He said it is important for the coaching staff and management to be on the same page when it comes to signing new players who fit into the coach’s vision of how he wants the team to play.
“It is very important with our ability to be shrewd and act swiftly in an increasingly difficult and competitive markets has been crucial to our success. This process is a joint efforts between management and coaching staff and no player signed by the club until such time as both are in agreement is then up to management to act swiftly to secure the services of the players” explain Tewesa.
Realistic for TNM Super league team on building a successful football brand by allowing senior management to have the final say in the signing of new players.
According to Tewesa, certainly he could never endorse this at Bullets.
“I firmly believe in the system that is in place at Bullets, but it would be unethical for me to comment on process employed by other clubs, of which I have little or knowledge other than what has been stated in the press
He believes each club will obviously employ the system that they believe best suits their club. On critics that label Nyasa Bullets as a team that has achieved success through playing a brand of direct football that is unattractive to watch
“One of the biggest debates in world football over the last decade has largely revolved around the lack of goals in matches. Goals are essence of football match and the future survival of the game rest, to large extent, on moving away from defensive tactics to more attacking approach which will translate into goals.
“What more can we ask of a Nyasa Bullets team that over the last two season and before that have scored more goals than any other Super league team?”
He questions, how can a team be playing boring football when its players have either been nominated or won year awards, including a goal of the season, over the last two season?
