Former AmaZulu coach Roger Palmgren has dramatically quit his job in charge of Namibia just days before the Brave Warriors are due to meet Nigeria in a World Cup qualifier.
It also comes just over a month after the Swede, who has had a colourful coaching career in Africa, took on the job.
Palmgren quit by telling the Namibia Football Association he felt unsafe in Windhoek after an alleged incident in his hotel bar a fortnight ago, where he claims that he was threatened.
He told officials he was accosted after Namibia played a goalless draw with Zambia in a warm-up match in May.
