Chiefs Make Huge Technical Team Announcement

Kaizer Chiefs have made a huge technical team announcement today at the FNB Stadium in Soweto. 

Arthur Zwane, a long-time servant of the Naturena-based side, has served the Soweto giants with distinction, as a player as well as a coach in the development structures of the club.

The club confirmed at a press conference this morning that the 48-year-old will take over as head coach, in a bid to turn the tide after a seven-year trophy drought. Dillon Sheppard has been named as the assistant coach.

When the club parted ways with Stuart Baxter in April, after 10 months at the helm, Zwane and Shephard were tasked with overseeing the team for the remaining seven matches of the league campaign.

As previously reported by the Siya crew, the Chiefs hierarchy believed that Zwane is the ideal candidate to take over the hottest seat in South African football, and has been offered a three-year deal.  

“We would like to take this opportunity and congratulate coach Arthur Zwane for this big appointment,” said club chairperson, Kaizer Motaung.

“The plan we have been working on for many years of appointing Arthur as our head coach has come to fruition. After seeing his passion for the game and his willingness to learn, we have been looking to bring him through to lead the seniors when the time is right, and we believe that time is now.

“We are also grateful that he has been patient and continued to work hard to advance his coaching skills and abilities by educating himself, which is key in the modern game.”
