Baroka tight-lipped over Wedson Nyirenda talk

Posted: 21 May 2018 Time: 11:11

KickOff.com has been informed that Wedson Nyirenda will take over at Baroka, with the club tight-lipped regarding the head coaching job.

Nyirenda, a former Kaizer Chiefs striker, has been coaching the Zambian national team and almost helped his country qualify for this year’s World Cup as they finished second in Group B to Nigeria. The 'pool of death' included north African powerhouse Algeria and African Nations Cup holders Cameroon.

“Nyirenda will be the new coach of Baroka FC,” a source told this website.

Bakgaga chairman Khurishi Mphahlele confirmed there have been talks with Nyirenda but gave little else away.

“We are talking to several coaches and he [Nyirenda] is one of them,” Mphahlele said.

“The club will have a press conference on June 16 where we’ll reveal the new coach.

“At this point in time I can’t say much but I’ll speak when that time comes.”

Nyirenda previously steered Zambia's U-20 side to U-20 COSAFA Cup honours in the North West in December 2016.
