Renard, who led Zambia to their first African Nations Cup victory in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea earlier this year, is under contract until 2014, but the media in that country believe that the Frenchman has threatened to walk out on the team.
“Don’t believe what the journalists are saying; these reports are laughable and untrue,” Kalusha Bwalya tells KickOff.com from the team’s camp ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Ghana.
Further reports suggest that Renard is locked in a money dispute with the Zambia Football Association, but Bwalya insists that is not the case.
“Believe me, Renard is happy here and he has a contract until 2014. People must not believe everything that is reported.”
