Cape Town - Baroka FC chairperson Khurishi Mphahlele has revealed that he is happy that the club's head coach Wedson Nyirenda is being strongly linked with the Zambia coaching post.
Nyirenda guided Bakgaga to the Telkom Knockout title last season with the Limpopo club making history as they were the first team from their province to lift a trophy in South Africa's top-flight.
The head coach though has now been linked with a return to his native Zambia to take up the job of the national side, who have not had a permanent coach since the start of this year.
Mphahlele told KickOff: "That means he is a good coach. If your coach is linked with a national team that means he is good.
"That means you've got a good coach and you must just keep him. We've got a contract with him, we will keep him.
"They will make us to keep him even more."
Mphahlele also said they would not stand in Nyirenda's way if he wanted the Chipolopolo post but they would need to be approached by the Zambian FA.
The Baroka chairperson also they would not request any release fee for the head coach.
Mphahlele said: "If Zambia wants the coach, they can come, they can approach us, then we will release him. We can't sell the coach.
"Yes we will release him for free, why not? We didn't buy him. Did we buy him? Then why do we sell him?"
