In a telephone interview on Monday, Leopards chairperson David Thidiela confirmed that Nyirenda was through with his rehabilitation.
â€œHe has made progress and he should be back in training by next week,â€ said Thidiela.
Nyirenda should join compatriot Dave Banda who played a full game on Saturday as Leopards beat Saint Eloi Lupolo of the Democratic Republic of Congo 4-2 in the African Confederation Cup second round match at Giyani Stadium.
Leopards travel to Lubumbashi for the return leg on April 16.
â€œMany soccer pundits are saying we should focus on one thing, survival. But I have much bigger ambitions than that,â€ Thidiela told the clubâ€™s website www.blackleopardsfc.com
Nyirendaâ€™s comeback should excite the Flames ahead of the forthcoming qualifiers for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and the 2014 World Cup.
