According to the Times of Swaziland publication, Isihlangu Semnikati midfielder Njabulo Ndlovu has urged the National Football Association to hand coach Harries Bulunga a new contract.
The Mbabane Swallows midfielder believes the coach deserves a new deal after his excellent work with the national side.
Ndlovu insists that 'Madze' has tremendously transformed the team and that he would personally like to see the coach staying with the team.
It is reported that Bulunga will see his existing contract coming to an end in September after their 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier against Malawi.
“Personally as a player I am comfortable playing under Bulunga’s leadership and I can be happy if the National Football Association of Swaziland can offer him another contract,” said Ndlovu.

“I honestly believe ‘Madze’ is a very good coach and deserves to be at the helm of the team.
"He is a part-time coach but look at what he has already achieved with the team."
The midfielder also expressed his desire to ply his trade outside of the country especially in the South African Premier Soccer League.
“As players we have also achieved something under Madze’s mentor-ship and I can tell you now that we are headed for great things," adds the player.
“As players we develop and gain more experience when we play in a different league. I don’t have a specific team but I would be happy to play in the PSL.
“I believe the COSAFA Cup has exposed us to the world and they now know what Swazi players are made of.”
