'I'm still learning PSL football'

READ: Baroka clinch maiden TKO crown

Nyirenda guided Bakgaga to their first ever major cup in top flight after upsetting Orlando Pirates 3-2 on penalties following a 2-2 draw in extra time on Saturday evening.

“First and foremost I’d like thank God the Almighty for his faithfulness and for his grace. When you believe in him and follow his commands he will do far what people expect,” Nyirenda told SuperSport TV.

“The first Cup for Baroka and the entire Limpopo. It gives me pleasure to give those people the first trophy.

“It is only five months for me in the PSL. I’m still learning PSL football and already we have bagged one cup. It is so pleasing. I want to thank my wife who has been supportive.

“This lifts a lot of burden that I had throughout this year including losing my mom.”

The Zambian tactician went on to explain the master plan they had for Bucs ahead of the match.

“We knew what to expect from Pirates they are a good ball distributing team, ball holding team and they can run. They did all they could but tactically we had planned to close their switch play and channels on the wings. There’s a deep ball they pass over the top and play it back and they can shoot. But we closed that. We also closed [Vincent] Pule today, he couldn’t manoeuvre so much. That is where our victory came,” he said.
