Zambian coach Wedson Nyirenda has resigned from South African Premier Soccer League side Baroka FC, AfricanFootball.com can confirm.
Nyirenda has decided to call time on his stay in Polokwane in the wake of the 1-0 Absa Premiership defeat to Stellenbosch FC that leaves the team winless in their nine home matches this season.
Baroka are also just a single point above the relegation zone and seemingly in freefall with inability to make homeground advantage count.
“Yes, have I resigned,” Nyirenda told AfricanFootball.com.
“But I think for now I cannot comment much, I just felt it was time to leave. I will give a comprehensive statement later on.”
Nyirenda joined the Limpopo club ahead of the 2018/19 season and had instant success, leading the team to the Telkom Knockout trophy with a surprise victory over Orlando Pirates in the final.
But he has found the going tough in the league and after narrowly avoiding relegation last season, has become embroiled in another battle at the bottom in this campaign.
