Baroka FC owner Khurishi Mphahlele told the Sowetan Newspaper that  Nyirenda is the man who will be taking up the team as from the upcoming season.

He further added that they had agreed a two-year deal with another one year option.

This is Nyirenda’s third foreign club stop after taking in Mozambique at HCB Songo in 2013 and Ferroviario Beira prior to taking over the Chipolopolo job in September, 2016.

Baroka, who were promoted in 2015, finished third from bottom last season at number 14.
