Zwane In Elite Group With Chiefs Legends '16v' & 'Ace' Khuse

With Arthur Zwane stepping in to take charge of Kaizer Chiefs' last two games of the season, we look back at how Amakhosi have given opportunities to their former players to work in the first team, including legends such as Doctor Khumalo and Fani Madida. 

Zwane stepped in after Gavin Hunt's contract was terminated and started with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Golden Arrows on Wednesday night, inspired by a Lebogang Manyama hat-trick. 

Amakhosi will have a chance to book themselves a spot in the top eight next season when they take on TS Galaxy. A victory for Zwane will do him well and could give management reason to keep him as one of the first team assistants for the incoming coach, likely to be Stuart Baxter, as reported by the Siya crew.

In the past, Amakhosi have had former players working as assistant coaches or stepping in as interim coaches. 

Probably the most popular were Khumalo and Donald 'Ace' Khuse, who were given the nicknames 'Boys 2 Men' when they stepped in as interim coaches when Muhsin Ertugral left Amakhosi for the first time in 2003. They were recalled to work as interim coaches when Amakhosi parted ways with Vladimir Vermezovic in 2012.
