Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the appointment of Molefi Nseki, as the club makes changes after the termination of Gavin Hunt's contract.
Former Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki has joined the club as Head of Technical and Youth Development.
Ntseki has signed a three-year contract with an option to extend for a further two years and, according to the club, will have the responsibility of advising on all technical operations and developing the strategy for the senior team, Kaizer Chiefs Youth Development Academy and the reserves.
“We are delighted to have Molefi Ntseki at Kaizer Chiefs,” Amakhosi chairman Kaizer Motaung is quoted as saying on the club website.
“Molefi comes at the right time as we implement changes that we believe are necessary for the Club as we go into the future. We strongly believe that we have appointed the right person for the position as he is someone who has really worked at all stages of football, from school level, youth structures and all our national teams.”
“We want to make progress in the way we run our football technical operations at all levels. We also do not want to lose all the good lessons we have learned in as far as our Youth Development Academy is concerned. Kaizer Chiefs has seen good players come through our youth structures and we would like for that to continue.”
“Our youth coaches have done a tremendous job over the years and we have seen them identify and promote great talent for Chiefs and the national junior teams. It’s important that we keep the Chiefs DNA intact and uniformity to ensure we hire the right people who will be the custodians of what we are building.”
