Wedson Nyirenda Coach of the Baroka F.C. has big plans for South African football. He called on all coaches in South Africa to increase the value of football in that country. As a former offensive player at the Kaizer Chiefs, he has given some praise to player Norman Mapez, who was recently named the new coach of Chippa United.

Nyirenda has called on all coaches whose teams compete in the PSL League or the Premier Soccer League to allow players from overseas so that they can step up the league. He spoke to reporters several times after his team lost to Maritzburg United and Kaizer Chiefs.

In the next game against AmaZulu, his team has to work harder. Wedson believes that despite his defeat at the Maritzburg club, his team played well. But because of the defeat, it’s clear that he still has to change something in the way they play. The Maritzburg United players couldn’t get close to a Baroka goal nearly all of the first half.

Wedson is convinced that he has a good team and that he may need to work on a few other small details. As the Telkom Knockout Cup begins next week the coach would again like to lead the club to the finals. He stated that everyone has to do their best and the finals are their main goal.

Wedson Nyirenda thinks his team doesn’t need any rest because they are currently in good shape. The coach stated that they should win the Cup again and if they fail then try to win the Nedbank Cup again. His biggest wish is to win the CAF League. But the first thing they need to do is concentrate on the game against AmaZulu.

Coach Nyirenda said it would be good for South African football to connect several other countries. Make players feel what it’s like to play in a different league. The ultimate goal for everyone in a football organization in Africa should be to add value to the national team. It is this team that will consist of the best players who have gained their experience playing in numerous clubs. With Soccer 10 it will be interesting to see the further course of the competition.

Coach Wedson is originally from Zambia, and before working as a coach he played for the Power Dynamos and Nchanga Rangers clubs. He played for the Kaizer Chiefs in 1993. After completing his playing career, he coached Zanaco clubs and Zesco United. For some time he was the head coach of the men’s soccer team. He coached the younger Zambian team for up to 20 years. With them, he won the Cosaf Championship at the African Youth Championship.
