Baroka FC is set to announce a new coach, following the team’s successful escape from relegation.
Baroka, who were involved in the relegation dogfight towards the end of the season, seem to have found their man for the coaching job.
As reported by the Siya crew in edition 1071 of Soccer Laduma (2-8 May), Nyirenda – who has been the Zambian senior national team coach – has been on the radar of Bakgaga for the position of head coach.
News reaching the Siya crew is that the former Kaizer Chiefs striker is set to take over the coaching reigns at the Limpopo outfit in preparation for the new season.
According to informants from within the Baroka camp, the club has arranged to unveil Nyirenda and all the new signings for next season next month.
A high-ranking source at Baroka has confirmed to the Siya crew that a two-year deal has been agreed to between the club and their new head coach.
