NEWLY appointed Green Buffaloes FC head coach Wedson Nyirenda says he will rebuild the team within the one-year contractual mandate given to him by the Zambia Army.
Nyirenda said his first assignment would be to build the foundation of the club, adding that he had already started working on it.
“I have always believed that a good coach will always build a good foundation such that even when you leave the club structures should always show that there was somebody who started this and here we are now enjoying the good works,” he said.
“I maybe called a new coach to Green Buffaloes but in reality I am not new; I have been in Zambian football for a long time. I know Buffaloes, their youth teams around the nation,” he said.
Nyirenda said the 2015 MTN/FAZ super league season would not be easy for any team to win because it is a competition played at the same platform and rules.
“Our aim is to jostle for a good position, which is the first position, and we are also going to fight to play the Barclays Cup which is for top eight teams,” he said.
Nyirenda said he would make sure that he puts in place all the necessary requirements and build a strong team out of the players available.
Nyirenda described the contractual negotiations with the Zambia Army as positive, adding that his presence at the club meant that he had already accepted the offer.
Meanwhile, his assistant coach Bilton Musonda said the team might not buy any new players for the 2015 season, adding that the club will move with its old players.
Musonda was Buffaloes interim coach when former head coach Patrick Phiri resigned from GBFC to take up a new job in Namibia.
Phiri was offered a job in 2014 by the Namibian Football Association which saw him leave the club under coach Musonda who is also Chipolopolo under-20 assistant coach.
