Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda
South African PSL club Baroka FC have confirmed Wedson Nyirenda as head coach.

The news was the worst kept secret following Nyirenda decision to resign as Chipolopolo coach on May 24.

“Yes, Nyirenda is the man who will be taking the reins as from the upcoming season,” Baroka owner Khurishi Mphahlele said told The Sowetan Newspaper.

“We agreed a two-year deal with another one year option.”

This is Nyirenda’s third foreign club stop after stints in Mozambique at HCB Songo in 2013 and Ferroviario Beira prior to taking over the Chipolopolo job in September, 2016.

Baroka, who were promoted in 2015, finished third from bottom last season at number 14.

  1. This is very good news for Zambian Football. We are finally sure FAZ will be looking for another coach and not holding own Wada piece of wood.

  3. Give that man a lot of drawing boards. He always needs them after every loss. Good luck Wada. Just do your job and be in a perpetual “we are building a team.”

  4. So what was the European Training fuss about? Ninshi ba FAZ tabalandilefye ati alefwaya inchito kumbi? A resignation should not be taken like its a bad thing, it is your right to resign. Don’t just be emotional about it.

  5. Thanks Wedson. Well tried. You are not a bad coach, this is the only truth, the other, Katwishi. There is time for every thing and now is your time to move on. Please ignore the dunder heads trying to portray you as useless and posting nonsense here, they are infact more useless themselves. All the best Mwana wa kwithu

  11. Coach Wada thanks for the good things you brought to the national team. Thanks for giving exposure to Augustine Mulenga and Justin Shonga. You did your part. We need another person to urge us forward. Wish the best at Baroka. FAZ you have an opportunity to take us to the world cup by giving us the best coach. I believe in my team and wait for the day we will be there. I hope sooner than later. ALL THE BEST WADA
