Palmgren On The Road Again

Former AmaZulu coach Roger Palmgren has stepped down as Namibia coach due to an alleged death threat, the Namibia Football Association confirmed.

The Swede saw his side draw 0-0 with Malawi in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on the weekend but he has left his post at the Brave Warriors just days before their meeting with the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Palmgren told the Namibia Football Association that he did not feel safe in the Namibian capital after a reported incident at a hotel a fortnight ago - where he is said to have had “serious threats directed towards him and his family”.

The coach had claimed that he was assaulted following their stalemate in a warm-up game against Zambia.

The association also revealed that that former Santos midfielder Ricardo Mannetti has taken over ahead of their game with the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations champions.

"The NFA announces that Ricardo Mannetti, assisted by Ronnie Kanalelo, will be in charge of the team’s match against Nigeria on 12 June 2013 at the Sam Nujoma Stadium, in Windhoek," read a statement on the NFA official website.

"We call upon the nation to continue rallying behind the Brave Warriors in our quest for qualification to Brazil 2014.

"The NFA will pronounce in due course the way forward with regard to the Brave Warriors head coach position."

Palmgren's spell in charge of the Namibian national team was his first job after being sacked by Amazulu last November.
