Zambia boss Herve Renard said on Wednesday he might quit the team because he has not received his salary for six months. In an interview with French sports newspaper L'Equipe
, Renard lashed out at Zambia's football authorities, a few days after fiercely criticising them for what he described as "poor travel arrangements" ahead of a World Cup qualifier against Sudan.
"I have not been paid for six months. After the African Cup of Nations, I took the decision to remain with the group despite other big offers. I planned to go to the World Cup. That’s life. I’ve learnt my lesson," the Frenchman said.
"After achieving something like winning the African Cup of Nations, I should have just left. I have been treated with extreme lack of consideration and respect… Enough is enough; if the problem is not solved by the end of June, I will leave," the former Angola boss added.
Herve Renard was reappointed as Zambia coach in October 2011 and helped them to a historic Nations Cup triumph last February. However, they have made a poor start in their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign after suffering a 2-0 defeat by Sudan.
They will host Ghana on Saturday in their next Group D game.
