Perhaps Motaung Will Make a Stunt Appointment That Will Rock South African Soccer, But Who?

South African football club Kaizer Chiefs could make a coaching decision over Arthur Zwane as soon as this week. Concerning Zwane, the group got together on Wednesday to discuss next steps. Zwane began his three-year contract as Chiefs coach at the beginning of the previous season, however his tenure was marked by ineffectiveness.

Zwane released a number of experienced players who had not contributed to Kaizer Chiefs’ trophy haul. These men, who were mostly in their 30s, left the club without bringing any trophies back to their families. Zwane decided to invest in the younger or prime-aged members of the club.

Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly considering Manqoba Mngqithi, the current assistant coach of Mamelodi Sundowns, to replace Zwane. Details of their Wednesday conversation, including Zwane’s status with the club, have not been disclosed.

Considering Mngqithi’s likely hire, Zwane’s status as head coach for the 2019 season is uncertain. It has been rumoured that Mngqithi is being seriously considered for the role, despite the club not making an official announcement. Supporters of Kaizer Chiefs can’t wait to hear updates on the team’s present status.
