Kaizer Chiefs legend Arthur Zwane has reacted to taking up the coaching hotseat for the final two league matches of the season, following the termination of Gavin Hunt’s contract.
Zwane and Dillon Sheppard have been made interim coaches while the Amakhosi management works behind the scenes to bring in someone who will take over and perform better than Hunt did at the helm.
Already Amakhosi are guaranteed to finish the season with their lowest ever points tally, but there’s still hope of finishing in the top eight.
The Soweto giants are currently in 11th place on 30 points and cannot afford to drop any points in their final two matches – against Golden Arrows today and TS Galaxy this weekend.
“Look, we are in a situation where we all know it’s difficult as a team. We need to grind results. As you know we have not been doing well, but it’s part of the game – you win some and lose some. Unfortunately, we are in a situation where we have to get maximum points at all costs, so we have been preparing the boys. They are doing well and looking forward to the game,” the man who was affectionately called ‘10111’ told the Amakhosi media department.
“I’ve been taking things one step at a time, you know. I am one person who believes in working hard and waiting for things to come to you and not you chasing things. The team just believed I can take the team forward until the end of the season.”
Zwane won two league titles as a player with Amakhosi and won a number of knockout competitions before bringing an end to his career. He's worked in the development side, as well as with the DSTV Diski Challenge side.
