Chiefs Star, Amakhosi Coach, Bafana – Zwane Tells His Story

Arthur Zwane has taken his time going through the ranks over the years, and the Kaizer Chiefs legend has now given some insight into his career after stepping up to Bafana Bafana.
 
 
The former Amakhosi star made his name at Naturena when he spent a decade there between 2000 and 2010 before his retirement, and of late has been putting his experience to use with the club’s MultiChoice Diski Challenge team.
 
Zwane, 45, is working his way through the UEFA coaching badges after acquiring his CAF A and B licences, and his work was rewarded this month when he received a call-up to work with Molefi Ntseki for their game against Zambia.
 
Unfortunately the encounter with Chipolopolo – and then a replacement match with Madagascar – was called off, but it was still an important step for the coach as he looks to climb up the coaching ladder.
 
Giving a history of his progression as a coach, Zwane told Chiefs’ official website, “While growing up in Meadowlands, I was approached by the local youngsters to assist them with coaching their team… These youngsters were involved in playing in the local tournaments. They were not so organised, but I was able to bring a level of structure.
 
“Discipline was the first step in my talk with them. I addressed with them issues of alcohol and substance abuse. They responded well and started to become more committed and dedicated to their game.”
 
 
‘10111’ went on to give more information about his early days, saying, “I’ve was involved with Meadowlands Galatasaray while still playing here at Chiefs… I always applied all what I was learning as a Chiefs player to the youngsters. We were winning tournaments. I recall the Discovery Tournament which we dominated over a period of four years. All this happened between 2001 and 2007.”
 
Zwane will be back on the bench for Chiefs’ MDC side this weekend when they look to build on their 7-1 demolition of Bloemfontein Celtic when they go up against Polokwane City.
