With cup preparations underway for defending Telkom Knockout champions Baroka FC, news has surfaced that the Limpopo club could be at risk of losing the services of head coach Wedson Nyirenda.

According to media reports, Nyirenda has been earmarked for a national team role with Zambia – a position previously held by the former Kaizer Chiefs striker.

“Baroka is preparing as per normal under coach Nyirenda for the upcoming Telkom Knockout match. That’s where the team’s focus is at,” said the source.
