VENTURES AFRICA: Zambia’s Football Association president and former captain of the country’s national team, Kalusha Bwalya has laughed off suggestions that Coach Herve Renard is set to quit the national team.
Earlier this week, various media reports suggested Renard- who guided the Chipolopolo to win this year’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON)- was set to be named South Africa’s new boss.
But speaking to Kickoff.com Bwalya said: “Don’t believe what the journalists are saying; these reports are laughable and untrue.”
“Believe me, Renard is happy here and has a contract until 2014. People must not believe everything that is reported.”
Zambia, this weekend, will host the Black Stars of Ghana in a World Cup qualifier after last week’s disappointing result against Sudan.
Renard’s team lost by 2 : 0 while their opponents this weekend thrashed Lesotho by 7 : 0. However, the last time Zambia played Ghana, the Chipolopolo beat the Black Stars 1 : 0 in the semi finals of the 2012 AFCON
