It’s believed Chiefs are willing to give the new coach and his staff authority to lead them in a new era. Amakhosi have not won silverware for the past nine years now and currently fighting to finish in the top eight. The risk of going a full decade without a trophy is surely giving the club’s management sleepless nights. It is for this reason that, this next coaching appointment could be undoubtedly the most significant in the clubs history. 

Ramovic out

Currently interim coach Cavin Johnson initially harboured ambitions of becoming the permanent coach at Chiefs. 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. 

Just at the start of the week, Portuguese coach Alexander Santos was regarded as the front runner for the job. But in a shock turn of events, reports suggested that TS Galaxy coach Sead Ramovic is the lead candidate. 

This publication then reported on Friday that, Ramovic is not currently under consideration at Chiefs!  Now according to Soccer-Laduma, only two candidates remain for the job. Those are Mosimane and Santos.

Mosimane and Santos vying for Chiefs job

“To tell you the truth, there are many meetings going on now at the club (Chiefs) concerning the coaches. But the latest is that the likelihood of Pitso Mosimane and Alexandre Santos will be one of the coaches. I am telling you that the committee looking at who the coach could be has narrowed their net to these two. Here is the catch or the problem. Who will be available at the start of the seasons? Will Petro de Luanda release Santos or will Abha Club hold onto Pitso if he avoids relegation with them in Saudi Arabia? It will all boil done to availability and also affordability.” Said a source to the publication. 

So Ramovic out, and Mosimane and Santos in straight shootout for the Chiefs job then?
