It is believed that Yeye is expected to coach the U19s.

“As part of a shake-up at the Kaizer Chiefs Village, the Siya crew has been informed that the club are stepping up the ante and are in advanced talks to bring former star duo Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Siphiwe Tshabalala back to the club,” Soccer Laduma reported in their latest edition.

“According to well-placed sources, Letsholonyane, who is currently completing his coaching badges, has been approached by the Soweto giants to take over the club’s U19 team, with an eye on eventually having him closer to the club’s first-team structures.

“Tshabalala, too, has been approached,” the publication said.

“Sources have indicated that Chiefs are understood to have been offered the role plan to rope in the club’s former poster of team manager, which stems from the club’s DStv Diski Challenge team, down to the rest of the Gauteng Development League teams,” the outlet concluded.
