Chiefs comment on coaching situation, court case

Chiefs will wait until the end of the season before making any hasty decision around the current coaching situation at the club.

Kaizer Chiefs’ 2021/22 DStv Premiership season plunged deeper into crisis after a home defeat against Cape Town City FC on Saturday. The defeat was the Glamour Boys’ fourth in a row, and Amakhosi are now in real danger of dropping out of the top eight in the standings with just four matches in the season remaining.

Interim coach Arthur Zwane, however, has highlighted why he’d be keen to take on the job permanently despite a run of poor results. That most recent loss was Amakhosi’s third league game – and defeat – since Stuart Baxter was sacked as head coach, while a fourth consecutive loss in a row represents the first time the club has suffered such a terrible run of results since the inception of the PSL in 1996.

Amakhosi have now gone seven years without a trophy, and Kaizer Chiefs Sporting Director Kaizer Motaung Jnr has admitted that there is a need for a clear road map to be paved for the way ahead.

Meanwhile, when speaking to the media on Wednesday, Kaizer Chiefs Marketing and Commercial Director Jessica Motaung suggested there wouldn’t be any hasty decision.

“We continue to apply our mind to the coaching situation, and well done to the team yesterday. We’ll finish the season off and obviously make the announcements in due course.”

There will also need to be some real clarity on the coaching setup after the departure of Stuart Baxter, with it also becoming apparent that Chiefs would be well-served by bringing in the fresh perspective of a high-class coach.

Chiefs have also been involved in a protracted legal battle with the PSL over missed matches in December, with the case scheduled to be heard at the Johannesburg High Court on 10 May.

“In terms of the court case, the court case is happening but I can’t comment more because it’s subjudice,” Motaung commented.
