On why he was on the bench in­stead of Nyirenda

Soccer Laduma - - How we beat Downs -

Coach Wed­son Nyirenda re­ceived ter­ri­ble news of the pass­ing of his mother, so he had to be given time off to be with his fam­ily. We worked to­gether as coaches and, in his ab­sence, I was given the task to lead the team (against Mamelodi Sun­downs) based on what we have been work­ing on to­gether and I am very happy that the boys didn’t dis­ap­point and car­ried out the in­struc­tions. I am sure coach Nyirenda is smil­ing where he is. At least we have given him some­thing to smile about dur­ing this dif­fi­cult pe­riod in his life. We all know how dif­fi­cult it is to lose a loved one and we wish coach Wed­son and his fam­ily ev­ery­thing of the best. We hope that God grants him strength dur­ing these try­ing times. The game we won gave him time to re­flect on some­thing else other than the pass­ing of his mother. We will con­tinue to push and work hard so that he doesn’t come back stress­ing about the po­si­tion of the team af­ter hav­ing stressed about the pass­ing of his mother. We will con­tinue to fight for the badge of Baroka FC.
