WADA praises PSL for believing in black coachesBy Abraham Kalito on 4 Oct 2019
Baroka FC coach Wedson Nyirenda has praised South African premier league clubs for believing in black coaches, especially those of Zambian origin and that he intended to make an impact in the Premier Soccer League.
Nyirenda told South African media in a post match interview following Baroka’s one nil loss to Maritzburg, Wednesday, that he was grateful to coach in the premiership.
He said he intended to add value to soccer in that country.
“In the next game (against AmaZulu), something must come out. I think my boys were excellent. We were all over the opponent which was at home, I think you saw that Maritzburg were not there. I want to win a CAF competition for a South African team. However, we have to focus on our next game against AmaZulu. They are a tough team and run as we do, play direct football, they can pass and they are quick. So, it will be very interesting,” Nyirenda said.
“They did not even touch our goals in the second half. I think we just need a player that can come with a hat-trick for such a game but we are not having it. I am not happy with our targets but I am happy with the building of the team. I think we have built a good team and all we need now is a finishing touch.”
Meanwhile, Nyirenda bemoaned the tight FIFA calendar, saying his team does not need to go on a regular break because it destabilises the atmosphere in the dressing room.
“I don’t think we want the break, we are on handbrake now because we will have to start the engine again. I think the rhythm has to flow. You play two games and you go three weeks out, this is too much. We’ve had three FIFA calendars and we only are seven or eight games into the season. I think if we can defend the Cup, if we don’t then we must go for the Nedbank Cup. Since I came to South Africa, the aim I have is to play CAF competitions with any team that I’ll be with, especially Baroka,” said Nyirenda.
