According to the ZamFoot Crew sources at Football House, FAZ President Andrew Kamanga, General Secretary Ponga Liwewe and other some of executive committee members are believed to have met on Friday to decide Wada Wada’s future.
“It’s an open secret now that Wada will be sacked in the coming few days,’ the ZamFoot Crew insider.
The ZamFoot Crew insider also revealed that the meeting tackled the hiring of a new coach.
“They might even announce a new coach in the coming few days.
Nyirenda took over from George Lwandamina in August 2016 and under his tutelage he qualified Zambia to CHAN tournament.
But just like his predecessor, his side fail short in the last 8.
In addition to the disappoint in Morocco, the Chipolopolo Boys were demolished in the Codafa Cup final last year.
After a poor start in the World Cup qualifiers, Zambia finished second in the group which had Nigeria, Cameroon and Algeria.
