Coach Patrick Phiri has resigned as Green Buffaloes trainer to take up the role of Nambia National Team technical advisor.

The ex-Chipolopolo coach confirmed on Tuesday that he is leaving Buffaloes following the offer from the Namibian Football Association.

“The truth of the matter is that I have received an offer from the Namibian FA, who have offered me an appointment as Technical Advisor,” Phiri said.

“When the offer came through I talked to my employers here at the army and they were very supportive and have given me a go ahead. I could not say no because they told me they had head-hunted me and our two countries enjoy very good relations from time immemorial so if we can help it is an honour,” he said.

Phiri, who guided Zambia to the 1999 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Nigeria, has coached Nkana, Napsa Stars and Simba Sports Club of Tanzania.

He won the FAZ Super League title with Nkana in 2001 as head coach.

  2. You will regret leaving GBFC and the Zambian league. Namibian football is docile and very inferior. In-fact Namibian players must come and play in Zambia because our teams are well sponsored than in Namibia.

    • I have some much to say to that you will never insult bloggers in your lifetime. In the meantime I will leave you alone as you struggle to survive wherever you are

  5. There is a precedent left by late Ben Bamfuchile about Zambian coaches in Namibia. He made a rare feat of taking the Namibian national team to the Africa Cup finals. This is a challenge which Patrick Phiri must be aware of.

  9. Congratulations Patrick Phiri.

    As a nation, we are very proud of your progress. Namibia might be lower in football standards, but this a challenge… you can improve their standards to a level that they start beating Chipolopolo. On the other side, you need to make yourself a decent income. If Namibia offers one, there is no harm in accepting the offer.

    Go for it Patrick, we support you. When you are tired of the task, come back home. We will welcome home.
