Is Wedson quitting Chipolopolo?By Diggers Reporter on 19 Aug 2017[easy-social-share counters=0 counter_pos="hidden" total_counter_pos="right" template="20" style="icon" point_type="simple"]
Zambia National Team assistant coach Aggrey Chiyangi has denied rumors that Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda is considering resigning this weekend.
Nyirenda is said to be upset after FAZ president Andrew Kamanga was quoted in Saturday’s Times of Zambia saying “the bench will be fired if they fail to qualify to 2018 CHAN tournament”.
Zambia came into the match level at 2-2 with Bafana Bafana from the first leg played on August 12 in East but qualified in the CHAN finals after a 4-2 aggregate win.
Nyirenda sat for most of the time in the dugout at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola during Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Bafana while Chiyangi took charge of barking orders for most of the match.
The Zambia coach did not even come for the post-match brief at Levy Stadium leaving all duties to Chiyangi.
“I think that is not true but one thing you should understand is that even coaches are human beings,” Chiyangi said at the post-match briefing.
“When you had a game that is crucial and that game is a do or die game and you are focusing and someone else comes says somethings that don’t make you happy, you are disturbed a bit. But for now this issue of resigning is not there. Whoever said that is just lying.”
Meanwhile, Zambia secured their passage to the Kenya finals in January, thanks to a brace from Justin Shonga’s goals in 79th and 82nd minutes that saw the Nkwazi striker deliver on his pre-match pledge to score.
