Ricardo Mannetti quit as Namibia coach on Thursday just 19 days after guiding the country to their greatest football achievement.

Pre-tournament outsiders Namibia defeated Mozambique 2-0 to win the Cosafa Cup southern Africa championship in South Africa under the former national team midfielder.

Mannetti will be replaced by former ‘Brave Warriors’ goalkeeper Ronnie Kanalelo, who has been assistant coach for two years.

He offered no explanation for his shock decision at a media conference in Windhoek.

“It is based on personal reasons and I do not wish to share them now,” he told reporters.

Mannetti said he would continue to work with the national football association, developing young footballers.

The first challenge for Kanalelo comes on Sunday when Namibia host Zambia in a 2016 African Nations Championship qualifier for home-based stars.
