A forgotten Kaizer Chiefs is hoping to stick around long enough to prove himself to the new coach. 

Some changes are expected at the end of the season, which will affect players and coaching staff at Chiefs.

Chiefs find themselves languishing in eighth place in the DStv Premiership thus far, with the squad underperforming. The team has not fared much better in the cup competitions either. Under Molefi Ntseki, they were knocked out of both the MTN8 and Carling Knockout Cup. That prompted the Amakhosi management to relieve the former Bafana Bafana coach of his duties.

Radebe has struggled for Chiefs game time

Chiefs then redeployed Cavin Johnson as their interim coach from his role overseeing the club’s academy. The club found themselves knocked out of the Nedbank Cup during his tenure.  Under both coaches, one player that has not had a look in is midfielder Sabelo Radebe. The former DStv Diski Challenge captain has found it tough to breakthrough at senior level. The current campaign being his third full season as an outcast in the squad. 

Promoted under Gavin Hunt during the 2021/22 season, Radebe saw even his former DDC coach Arthur Zwane snub him. In the past two seasons, the playmaker has only made five appearances with the writing perhaps on the wall. According to Soccer-Laduma he has not given up on his Chiefs career yet and hope to impress the new coach!

waiting for new coach?

“Kaizer Chiefs are understood to be looking at loaning out midfielder Sabelo Radebe, but they could also wait for the appointment of a new coach to make a final decision.The Siya crew has been led to believe that Amakhosi management see the former Diski Challenge captain as a player for the future, even though game time has been hard to come by since he was promoted to the first team in 2021.” Wrote the publication.

With a whole host of changes expected at Chiefs, a loan move could be best for Radebe’s fortunes.
