Concerns mount over delayed decision

The delay in appointing a permanent coach has sparked concerns among club insiders and fans alike. Former Amakhosi striker Ndlanya voiced his apprehensions about the prolonged decision-making process in an interview with Soccer Laduma.

“Chiefs should have had a coach by now. It’s concerning, considering their poor performance last season. Time is running out, especially with Euro 2024 distracting attention. Perhaps Chiefs have already made a decision, but the timing seems off,” Ndlanya commented.

He highlighted the importance of stable leadership heading into preseason. “The preseason period is critical for any new coach to assess the squad, plan transfers, and implement their tactical vision. Without this time, the team risks being underprepared for the upcoming challenges,” Ndlanya emphasised.

Crunch time for pre-season preparation

Chiefs icon Ndlanya emphasised the significance of the preseason for a new coach. “They’re running out of time. A new coach needs at least three months to assess the team, decide on transfers, and implement strategies. Delaying this decision risks another disappointing season,” he added.

The urgency for the Chiefs to appoint a new coach cannot be overstated. With preseason almost underway, the new coach’s ability to integrate and strategize will be pivotal for the team’s performance in the upcoming season.
