Another African Coach Bites The Dust

South Africa’s Absa Premiership club Baroka FC confirmed coach Wedson Nyirenda’s resignation on Monday.

The club released a statement acknowledging the 53-year-old’s resignation via Twitter.

“Baroka FC officially confirms that Coach Wedson Nyirenda has resigned from the team. @Baroka_FC appreciates his endless efforts and wishes him all the best.”

Nyirenda arrived at the Limpopo side in June 2018 after signing a two-year deal and led the club to win her maiden Telkom Knockout Trophy after eliminating clubs like Arrows, Sundowns, Bidvest and then Orlando Pirates in the finals.

In his first year, Nyirenda helped Baroka keep its place in the PSL as they finished in 14th place.

However, a run of poor results has seen the fortunes of the former Zambian national team coach take a dip in his second year.

Relegation-threatened Baroka have recorded only three victories in their first 15 games of the season and are just two places off the bottom of the log. also reported the resignation of former Coach John Obuh at Nigeria Professional Football League side, Akwa United this month.
