Namibia coach quits


The Zambian claims the Namibia Football Association (NFA) has been "disrespectful and careless" towards him, making his position with the team untenable.

"I am tired. I've had enough. I am done now. It's over," he told The Namibian newspaper, going on to say he had been “treated like a child".

_quoteIt seems his anger surrounds certain promises made by the NFA which have never materialised, including transport to get him to and from work every day.

"I am not a kid and I am not a beggar. I don't beg for money or anything. I thought I would be treated with respect and being a professional, I thought things would be done in a professional way. But for a national team coach not to have transport, which is so important to carry out duties, is really shameful," he said.

The Zambian national led the Brave Warriors to surprise qualification for the Nations Cup in Ghana and his departure just six weeks before the tournament will be a major blow.

But he says he has no regrets and will return to his homeland.

"I love football and I was really committed in taking this team to the Nations Cup. But I am very disappointed by my bosses and this has left me with no option but to resign.

"I will go back home. I have a business back at home and my wife is currently running it. We make enough money and I don't think it is worthwhile to continue with this job," he said.
