Baroka FC boss Wedson Nyirenda wants foreign coaches in South Africa to do more

Baroka FC head coach Wedson Nyirenda has exclaimed that foreign coaches in South Africa need to bring more substance to Absa Premiership football. 

Nyirenda who previously plied his trade with Kaizer Chiefs heaped praises on Norman Mapeza for his appointment with Chippa United and believes he will change the team around. 

The Zambian coach also spoke to the media about his side's loss to Chiefs and Maritzburg United

“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,” Nyirenda told Sport24.

“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.”

The former Chipolopolo coach also spoke about SuperSport United's Kaitano Tembo and acknowledge the hard work that he is putting in with the club.

“I think if you are in football, you have to know that you’re in a global game and I’d love to see South Africans coaching in Zambia. Coaching in Morocco and that is how we grow in football,” Nyirenda said.

“You don’t grow by being in the same environment or space. It is so good that some people are seeing something from the coaches from outside but I think the most important thing for us when we come here is to add value to South African football, not just come and visit and go back.

“We need to add value to the national team and as I’m training Baroka, I’m always preaching to the players that I want to see five players in Bafana then we are doing something."
