Kaizer Chiefs, heed the call. The stars are aligned and you have the best opportunity yet to secure Pitso Mosimane and Percy Tau.

Mosimane to Chiefs is still alive and it could cost Arthur Zwane and several staff members their current positions. Furthermore, Amakhosi management are keen to sign Percy Tau.

Interestingly, Mosimane will be available when Amakhosi intend to sign their next permanent coach. Meanwhile, Tau’s current contract issues at Al Ahly, in tandem with the club targeting his signature, make the second half of this dream a plausible reality. At the very least, it is one that must be pursued practically and wholeheartedly. Especially, with the clubs trophy drought and the context of these two massive South African football figures. The new era of Chiefs is upon us with a new-coach, captain and new-look team. Therefore, lets usher it in in style.


Nine years, no silverware. Moreover, for the better part of the last decade, Amakhosi fans have been left frustrated and heartbroken. During this time, a fortitude of problem areas have become clear.

None more so than the need for an experienced and successful coach and a clinical striker. The likes of Molefi Ntseki, Arthur Zwane and Cavin Johnson and even Gavin Hunt and Stuart Baxter (who received second stints at the club), have come and gone with very little improvement, if any. Arguably, Amakhosi are as worse off than they were having just lost the most DStv Premiership games in their history.

Therefore, they need a coach who is capable of turning around their fortunes. A man who is successful and experienced. Mosimane is this man, Amakhosi. He awoke the sleeping giants that were Al Ahli. He won the league and took them back into the top flight of Saudi Arabia. Now, as the season comes to an end he has seemingly saved Al Abha from relegation. These are just add-ons to a man who won several PSL titles with Sundowns and conquered back-to-back CAFCL with Al Ahly.

Furthermore, he also lead the Egyptian giants to a record-high third place finish at the Club World Cup. You seek experience and success, he fits the criteria and has superceded all expectations. He will be available soon too with his short-term contract set to end at the end of June. Additionally, Mosimane has made it clear that he is open to the possibility of joining Chiefs – or any club for that matter. As long as they have a clear project and plan. Returning Amakhosi to their glory days is one of the biggest and most challenging projects in SA and Africa.

Therefore, you must make signing Mosimane your priority – at all costs. It is time to make him an offer and to let him work his magic at Amakhosi. If there is one man who can turn around their fortunes, it is Mosimane.


The second major problem area has been the lack of composure in front of goal. Amakhosi needs a consistent striker capable of notching up double-figures each season. We know Tau is capable and with quality around him, Amakhosi could strike gold.

Signing Mosimane could motivate Tau to join the Soweto giants, vice versa. Given the fast history these two share. Tau has worked under Mosimane at Sundowns and Al Ahly. The dream of Tau and Mosimane playing for Chiefs could become a reality if you fight for it. The Lion of Judah is currently struggling to agree to terms with Al Ahly. With the Red Devils of Egypt not budging on his proposed salary increase. So, this is the best chance Amakhosi will have to sign Tau and Mosimane and one mans signature may inspire the other. Heed the call, act now, Amakhosi!
