- He gave coach Wedson Nyirenda the tough mandate recently
- The boss believes the team is capable of achieving this
Baroka FC escaped relegation by a thread last season, but that has not stopped club chairman, Khurishi Mphahlele, from having ambition. He has issued a mandate to coach Wedson Nyirenda to win the league title this season.
Baroka has been flirting with relegation every season, yet Nyirenda is expected to win domestic football's biggest prize. According to TimesLive, the big boss said that he needs to be given what he wants.
"He knows very well that I want the league."
Baroka boosted their ranks with the acquisition of Gerald Phiri‚ Denwin Farmer‚ Richard Mbulu‚ Sbonelo Ngubane‚ Khulekani Madondo‚ Manuel Kambala‚ Kamohelo Mogaswa‚ Mfanafuthi Shozi and Lloyd Kazapua during the off-season.
Mphahlele believes that these new signings will help in their mission to win the league title.
"Our team is balanced in all departments and what is left now is for the coach to come up with winning combinations so that we can achieve our mission."
The boss believes that the team is old enough now and cannot still be learning.
"It is time to be bold and declare our intentions of wanting to win the league as early as possible.”
Baroka finished at 14th place last season.
“I think we are going to be dark horses because a lot of people do not think that we can actually challenge for the league."
