Wada itching for touchline action

By GRACE CHAILE LESOETSA
WEDSON Nyirenda says the coronavirus has put things on a halt as he is itching to get back on the touchline.
The former Chipolopolo tactician has been out of work since he resigned at South African Premier League side Baroka FC as head coach last December.
He had a few offers immediately after leaving Baroka, but he was not ready to take them up then.
But after enjoying his time on the sidelines, Nyirenda has indicated that he was looking forward to getting back on the touch line.
In an interview, he said he was still a free agent and awaiting the right opportunity.
“I am still waiting for my manager to inform me. I am still a free agent and open to offers anywhere. I miss coaching, this coronavirus has really put things at halt. We pray for a quick and safe return to the pitch. Right now, it is just reading and researching,” he said.
Asked on whether he would take up a coaching job locally, the former Nchanga Rangers and Power Dynamos striker said he was available to contribute to the development of the game in Zambia.
He said local football shaped his career both as a player and coach, therefore he respects the Zambian game.
“Oh yes, I am open to coach anywhere as long as both parties agree and are happy,” he said.
Nyirenda won Super Division titles with Zesco United in 2007 and 2008 and with Zanaco in 2009.
He was Chipolopolo coach from September 2016 to May, 2018. He led Baroka to a first ever domestic title, the 2018 Telkom Knockout champions.
He was crowned Mozambique coach-of-the-year after guiding Ferroviaro de Beira to their maiden Premier League title in 2016.
