Kaizer Chiefs are believed to be pressing ahead with plans to secure the services of a new coach next season.

Arthur Zwane was in-charge at Chiefs last season, before being replaced by Molefi Ntseki ahead of the current campaign.

To the majority of the Chiefs fan base, Ntseki was already an unpopular appointment, with no positive track record. Prior to taking over the first team reigns, he had never coached a senior professional side. He did, however, coach Bafana Bafana after Stuart Baxter, before being fired for failing to qualify for AFCON 2021. The duo reunited as part of a new structure at Amakhosi, which put him in charge of football development.

Ntseki did not last long as Chiefs coach, however, being sacked before even the halfway mark of the season. This came after an unconvincing start to the campaign which also saw them knocked out of two cups. After being relieved of his duties, the club appointed Johnson to take over on an interim basis. Coincidently, Cavin Johnson also came into the club in a developmental role, before being asked to steady the senior ship.A run which saw Chiefs winning three of their last four games of 2024, saw Johnson in with a shout. But now according to the latest, the club are back looking at other candidates. 

There have been the likes of Pitso Mosimane and Manqoba Mngqithi in a local sense. Internationally, Jose Peseiro, Vanderlei Luxembergo , Raul Caneda Perez and Nasreddine Nabi . 

There have also been outsiders offering themselves to Chiefs, like former Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa. Additionally former Newcastle United star Nikodimos ‘Nikki’ Papavasiliou. Now according to Soccer-Laduma an ex-candidate has renewed his interest in the job. This in the form of Adel Amrouche

Amrouche interested in Chiefs job again?

“Kaizer Chiefs need a coach who knows how to communicate and someone with a strong personality. The club needs someone who should be of good use when it comes to helping the players psychologically. If one has to talk about the qualifications and experience, then Adel Amrouche should be one of the candidates. Some of the supporters are aware of his achievements in football and wouldn’t mind having a coach of Adel’s calibre in charge of their team. In his next role, the coach is keen on club football where he will be able to be active everyday as opposed to the national team.

“He believes he can get Chiefs back to Champions League football and not just Lighting for the top eight. Amrouche knows about the importance of making the supporters happy. He is someone who is results-driven and he likes playing good football. If he can get the opportunity at Chiefs, he will do his level best to make the supporters and the club happy. For him, it’s all about the supporters first, as well as the club. The coach is currently in Qatar and will be going back to Tanzania soon to sort out some issues,” said the source to the same publication.

Amakhosi also interested?

Are Chiefs also interested in Amrouche? Only time will tell.
