Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele won't put pressure on coach Wedson Nyirenda just yet


Bakgaga have registered just one victory in their seven Absa Premiership matches and are currently second-from-bottom on the standings ahead of Limpopo rivals Black Leopards.

Baroka have scored just five goals and conceded nine so far, a big sign that they need to improve if they are to avoid being in a relegation battle this season.

Nyirenda may have the backing of management at the moment, but he will no doubt have to start delivering to ensure they do not lose patience.

“We’ve won one so far. We’ve started very slow, but we are not surprised because the coach is new and he has a few new players in the team,” Mphahlele tells

“I think with time they will be able to find themselves. There’s no pressure on the coach at all. We are going to give him our support and we are going to give him more time. There’s no pressure on him at all. We believe in his ability to execute his job.”

Baroka, who were beaten 2-1 by Soweto giants Orlando Pirates over the weekend, will take on Free State Stars in an Absa Premiership match at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night (19h30).
