Football Association of Zambia have permanently offered Wedson Nyirenda the coaching job of the national team.

In an talk with ZNBC's Sunday Interview, Nyirenda stated that all that is remaining are formalities with the Ministry of Sports who bankroll the senior national team.

“The issue of an expatriate coach has fallen off. We have concluded the talks (with FAZ). All we are waiting for is finalization of the document (contract) which is now with the attorney general. As you know the government sponsors the national team,” the former Chipolopolo striker said.

Nyirenda was appointed to the Chipolopolo technical bench to be assistant to who would be appointed national team expatriate coach.

But with the head of state President Edgar Lungu indicating that he was impressed with what he saw after watching Zambia go down to Nigeria in Ndola under the tutelage of Nyirenda, the button automatically fell to ‘Wada Wada’.

The former Nchanga Rangers and Power Dynamos striker has so far presided over four games losing two (against Nigeria and Zimbabwe), winning one against Uganda and drawing against Cameroun in Limbe.

He will be the first mab to be confirmed as Chipolopolo coach since the departure of French man Here Renard who resigned in 2013. (mtnfootball.com)
