The South African premier division football offers generous opportunities to win silverware. Kaizer Chiefs lost enormous cash but still managed to bank from the Carling Knockout and Nedbank Cup tournaments.

KAIZER CHIEFS EARNINGS ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD

Most domestic leagues around the world only offer the league competition and one cup tournament. In Mzansi, we have the DStv Premiership as well as three cup competitions: MTN8, Carling Knockout and Nedbank Cup. Finishing in the top two adds the CAF Champions League, while winning the Nedbank Cup offers the CAF Confederation Cup.

For Kaizer Chiefs, last season offered opportunities to win the MTN8, Carling Knockout and Nedbank Cup. The deeper a club goes into a competition.

Unfortunately for Amakhosi, things did not go well at all. Kaizer Chiefs lost to Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 semi-finals. In the Carling Knockout, the Glamour Boys lost to AmaZulu in the opening round of 16, before falling to Motsepe Foundation Championship side Milford FC in the opening round of the Carling Knockout.

Nevertheless, some money was made for appearing in the Carling Knockout and Nedbank Cup. Additionally, finishing 10th in the DStv Premiership was financially better than finishing 11th or lower.

CALCULATIONS

MTN8 last 8 prize: R800 000

Carling Knockout last 16 prize: R550 000

Nedbank Cup last 32 prize: R100 000

DStv Premiership 10th position prize: R850 000

Total: R2, 275 000.

NEW COACH ON THE WAY

Meanwhile, former Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson finished his term on the final day of lat season with a 2-0 loss to Cape Town Spurs. Amakhosi were then hotly linked with the likes of Pitso Mosimane, Jose Peseiro and Alexandre Santos.

According to the latest reports, Kaizer Chiefs have reached a verbal agreement with Nasreddine Nabi. The Tunisian caught the eye after winning two domestic doubles with Tanzanian giants Young Africans. Reports say that Amakhosi are waiting for Nabi to play his final league match with Moroccan giants AS Rabat.

What do you expect from Amakhosi next season? Let us know in the comments section below.

PITSO MOSIMANE SHARES HIS OPINION ON KAIZER CHIEFS

Kaizer Chiefs are fresh from delivering the club’s worst ever season. With the new season starting in August, Amakhosi are yet to make any aggressive statements of intent. For now, the ever-outspoken Pitso Mosimane has suggested a message to the bosses at Naturena.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns and Al Ahly boss is back home after leaving Saudi Arabia’s Ahba Club. Appearing on Sports Amplified with Andile on Tuesday, Mosimane was asked to share his take on why Kaizer Chiefs continue to trail behind Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.

“You can’t win games when you don’t have good players, ” Mosimane said. “How Manchester City turn around things. [Is it] because Pep Guardiola is a magician? He’s got [Erling] Halaand. – READ THE FULL STORY HERE.

PITSO MOSIMANE COMMENTS ON AMAKHOSI JOB

Staying with Pitso Mosimane, the former Bafana Bafana coach also sent a comment on the reports linking him to the club.

Following the end of his term in Saudi Arabia with Abha Club, Mosimane has been back home in South Africa. Though Kaizer Chiefs are set to appoint Nabi, Mosimane remains an outside candidate until Amakhosi officially announce Nabi.

Speaking to the media this past weekend, Mosimane simply said it is not fair to put Amakhosi under pressure to appoint him.

“It is a big club, it is a big institution,” Mosimane told SABC Sport. “Everywhere I go, everybody would ask me. But, I’m a professional. I will not use that to put Kaizer Chiefs under pressure over these things. It is not fair, because we don’t know what is happening. What are they thinking and what is their vision? – READ THE FULL STORY HERE.
