Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly eyeing former Real Madrid coach Vanderlei Luxemburg as their next mentor.

The club are expected to replace interim head coach Cavin Johnson at the end of the season.

And new reports suggest Brazilian mentor Luxemburgo is the club’s ‘second’ choice after Pitso Mosimane.

Vanderlei Luxemburgo coached Real Madrid between 2004 and 2005. Amongst the other teams the 71-year-old coached is the Brazilian national team as well as host of top clubs in South America.

Former Real Madrid coach ‘second’ choice for Kaizer Chiefs

“Yes, coach Luxemburgo is one of the favourites but the first choice still remains coach Pitso Mosimane,” a source told SoccerLaduma.

“It will all depend on whether he Mosimane doesn’t join another overseas team or doesn’t renew his deal with his current team Abha Club.

“It will be tough for Kaizer Chiefs but they are playing a waiting game hence they have all these other coaches on the shortlist. Luxemburgo is one of them.”

We can go all the way! – Mokwena

In other news Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rhulani Mokwena believes his side can go all the way in the CAF Champions League this year.

The Brazilians are looking to use their Africa Football League success to drive them in the Champions League.

Mokwena’s side booked their spot in the last eight after defeating TP Mazembe 1-0 on Saturday, to finish top of their group.

“I think if we still have to send the message to doubters there is something wrong,” Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rhulani Mokwena said as quoted by Sowetan.

“For the last six years we have been in the quarterfinals, last season we were in the semifinal for the first time in four or five occasions. And we want to be that team that is always there. It is not good enough to think that you can win a continental trophy without a big stamp on the continent.

“They are there every single season in the quarterfinals and semifinals. Eventually, Mamelodi Sundowns can break the dominance of the North African sides in the competition and we will win the Champions League.”
