Nyirenda, Serbians shortlisted for Baroka Job
LIVINGSTONE, ZAMBIA: South Africa’s Premier Soccer league (PSL) side Baroka FC have shortlisted three candidates set to compete for the club coaching role, and erstwhile Zambia senior national team coach Wedson Nyirenda is amongst the trio.
Nyirenda, today handed his resignation letter to the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) and later the outgoing FAZ General Secretary Ponga Liwewe confirmed parting ways with the man who has been in charge of the national team reins since September 2016.
It is roundly believed that Nyirenda resolved to quit his Chipolopolo post so as to eventually take over the mantle from Doctor Khumalo at Baroka FC in South Africa.
Reports from local and foreign media outlets indicates that the former Chipolopolo coach and the club based in Ga-Mphahlele, near Polokwane Limpopo have already sealed the deal. But Baroka Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Morgan Mammila repeatedly repudiated credence of these reports.
He however told this publication that Nyirenda was amongst the three candidates who have been shortlisted for the job, but clearly stated that nothing is definitive thus far.
“He [Wedson Nyirenda] is one of our candidates,” said Morgan Mammila, Baroka FC Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
“There three shortlisted candidates. We are yet to commence contractual negotiations with them.”
Mammila said the two other foes of Nyirenda are currently national team coaches, as such he could not reveal their identities. He however gave a hint that both are Serbians.
