Chiefs’ Number Two’s First Words Ahead Of Tough Task

Kaizer Chiefs appointed two assistant coaches to work alongside Gavin Hunt and one of them has since opened up about the tough task that lies ahead.

Hunt took over the reins at Amakhosi after Ernst Middendorp was relieved of his duties at the club earlier this month, with Shaun Bartlett also following the German mentor out the exit door.

The Cape Town-born mentor, or serial title-winner as he is fondly known in the football fraternity, will be assisted by Arthur Zwane, who was previously in charge of Amakhosi’s first team and Dillon Sheppard who assisted Hunt during their stint at Bidvest Wits.

“To be part of the Kaizer Chiefs senior team, the mindset changes completely, I’ve been with the development for nine years now, approaching 10 years, there it was more about teaching the boys how to play the way of Kaizer Chiefs, how to conduct themselves and understand the game better,” Zwane said speaking on Chiefs’ official YouTube channel.

The 47-year-old was previously in the assistant coach position back in 2018 after Steve Komphela resigned from the helm and Patrick Mabedi took over in the interim.

“Going back to the first team for the second time means a lot though it is going to be a lot of responsibility because there are expectations in terms of result. It is more about winning now. It is not an easy task. Now I am going to have to learn to understand how coach Gavin operates. 

"It was a dream that time but now it is a reality because it is what I have been thinking about, it is what I’ve been dreaming about and working towards and it is happening right now and it is all up to me to take it further and make it blossom.

“I am being given this opportunity once more and I don’t want to disappoint. 

"I am looking forward to work and learn with Coach Gavin Hunt and Dillon Sheppard. Most of all, to make the Kaizer Chiefs fans happy by winning trophies for them and playing a brand of football that Kaizer Chiefs are known for.”
