Will Kaizer Chiefs fans finally celebrate the signing of Pitso Mosimane this coming winter? Let’s look at four reasons that give Amakhosi fans to feel excited. The reasons include comments from Kaizer Motaung Junior, Kaizer Motaung and how they connect with Mosimane’s own comments and contract situation with Abha Club in Saudi Arabia.


Without too much discussion, let’s go straight in to the reasons the man known as “Jingles” is likely to move to Naturena.

1. Kaizer Motaung Jnr

    The latest chat about Kaizer Chiefs’ coaching situation was communicated by the club’s Sporting Director Kaizer Motaung Jnr. The former striker assured fans that the Soweto giants will appoint a ‘new technical structure. “It’s a something we communicated from the onset — Cavin [Johnson] has stepped in on an interim basis and we’re [committed] to having a different technical structure next season,” Motaung told TimesLIVE last week. “The plans have long been in motion — we’ll be having a different technical structure next season. At the appropriate time we’ll make the right announcements.”

    2. Kaizer Motaung

      The Soweto Giants’ founder and chairman, Kaizer Motaung, previously confirmed the club’s search for a new coach. “I cannot say at the moment how many CVs are on the table, but process is taking place,” the Kaizer Chiefs chairman said via SportsLIVE with BBK in December 2023. “We haven’t embarked on talking to anybody at the moment, but we have put a process is in place for us to deal with new coach that we want to bring in, because as you said, Mr Johnson is just an interim coach at the moment,” the Amakhosi icon concluded.


      South African football supporters should remember. Mosimane, during his summer rest here in Mzansi, spent some time with the media to talk about his future. The 59-year-old coach from Kagiso, Gauteng, went as far offering himself to Kaizer Chiefs on live television.

      “We should respect the brand, it is a big brand,” Mosimane said on SuperSport TV’s Soccer Africa.

      “…When Chiefs play, I go to grandstand and watch. I don’t need that…If it is meant to be, it will be there. I declare to you officially on TV. I am here. I am available; I’m a professional coach. If it has to be, it will be. Do I want to coach Kaizer Chiefs? Why not? Why not coach Kaizer Chiefs? Why not?” Mosimane concluded.

      4.Pitso Mosimane’s contract with Abha Club

      Lastly, Pitso Mosimane seemed to have broken the hearts of Kaizer Chiefs fans in January when he moved to Abha Club in Saudi Arabia, but the move does not really affect Amakhosi’s dreams for next season.

      The former Mamelodi SundownsBafana Bafana, and Al Ahly coach signed a four-month deal with Abha. The contract started in February, meaning it will expire in May. The same month will be the end of the season in Saudi Arabia and here in the DStv Premiership.
