Information coming through from Zambia is that national team coach Wedson Nyirenda has applied for the Cameroon coaching job.

The Chipolopolo boss may have jumped from a frying pan into the fire by applying for the Cameroon national team coaching job.


According to an insider at Football House, the Football Association of Zambia is extremely displeased with the coach’s move and may table his sacking for what is termed indiscipline in the executive meeting.

This development comes after the coach announced his provisional squad for the upcoming 2018 COSAFA Cup tournament in South Africa next month.

Nyirenda is among the 71 coaches that have applied for the vacant Indomitable Lions coaching job, but his employees have not taken the move lightly.

According to the Times of Zambia, the source revealed that Nyirenda is scheduled to have a meeting with the Sports Minister Moses Mawere this week.

“FAZ seems not too happy with Wedson‘s conduct and he may face disciplinary measures,” the source said.

Nyirenda wrote an email to FAZ a fortnight ago saying that he felt not wanted by his employers and that they should relieve him of his duties and pay him.

“I don’t think there is need for technical review when you have already judged and made up your minds. You would be doing me a great favour if you terminated my contract,” Nyirenda said in an email according to ZambianFootball.

“I have been injured for so long now and I’m only human. We cannot go on pretending. Where I thought I would be getting understood according to our objective is where I am getting attacks.”
