Ex-Chiefs Defender Lands New Coaching Gig

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Rodney Thobejane is excited about his latest coaching gig and is looking forward to the challenge.

Since retiring from playing in the professional ranks, Thobejane added to the growing list of former footballers who take up coaching as a career to give back what they have learned in the game over the years.

In his previous role, the former centre-back coached Limpopo-based ABC Motsepe League side Ditlou FC.

Thobejane has joined Ngwaabe City Motors, which is the same club that former Chiefs star Junior Khanye last featured at, as their technical advisor.

“I have joined Ngwaabe City Motors as a technical advisor and it’s an exciting role that I am looking forward to. As someone who has been coaching in this league, I think there have been people who have been following my progress and like what I have been doing. So, I think this club liked my coaching qualities and decided that I could add value to the technical team as an advisor,” said Thobejane.

“Maybe they saw potential in me and decided that I could help their coaches with tactics and tactical planning. I am happy about this because growth is something very important that one needs as a coach. The guys (in the technical team) will be learning from me in the same way that I will be learning from them,” he added.
