Breaking: Chiefs Confirm Two Assistant Coaches For Hunt

Kaizer Chiefs have made headway in assembling Gavin Hunt’s technical team, the club confirming developments at Naturena.

As we reported on Friday and again earlier on Monday, the Glamour Boys have now concluded talks with Dillon Sheppard and Arthur Zwane to join Hunt at the club as assistant coaches.

Sheppard previously worked alongside Hunt at Bidvest Wits for three years and with the serial winning coach appointed by Chiefs coach last week, it was believed Sheppard would then follow him and become a member of his support staff.

According to insiders, ‘Sheppy’ has put pen to paper on a three-year contract with Amakhosi, the same length as Hunt, and is expected to begin work immediately.

It is expected that Zwane's contract will also be the same length as he moves from being the MDC coach to being part of Hunt's backroom staff. 

Mamelodi Sundowns, where Sheppard spent three years as a player and won one league title, were also keen on roping him in – but sources suggested  that the role offered to the 41-year-old was a coaching position within the youth structures.

The Chiefs move seemed more appealing, especially with Hunt now the new man in the hot seat after Ernst Middendorp was allowed to leave at the end of the season.

Zwane played for Amakhosi between 2000 until he retired in 2010 - his work as a youth coach has been lauded and now he gets to be elevated next to arguably one of the most succesful coaches in the country.
