Chiefs Narrow Coach Search To Three
Kaizer Chiefs are believed to have narrowed their search for a new head coach down to three candidates, one of which is thought to be former Chelsea head coach, Avram Grant.
The Glamour Boys have played their cards very close to their chest since the exit of Steve Komphela towards the end of the 2017/18 season, with several names being thrown into the hat as potential successors to the South African.
Bobby Motaung recently confirmed in the media that they have received around 20 different CVs regards to the vacant position at Naturena, although throughout the process the whole club has been very cautious about naming any names.
While Grant is thought to be one of those who has made it into the final three in terms of potential candidates, the other two – at this point – remain unknown.
The likes of Stuart Baxter, Doctor Khumalo and Mick McCarthy have all been linked with the Amakhosi in recent weeks, however, there is also a possibility that the club has widened its search elsewhere as they seek to bring their three-season drought to an end.
Given the fact that the candidates have now been whittled down, it is thought that Chiefs could well make a final decision in the next few weeks in order to make sure that Komphela’s replacement has as much time as possible to plan for the 2018/19 campaign.
