Six Coaches In Line For Chiefs Job?

Kaizer Chiefs Need To Decide On Their New Head Coach

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 27, 2018 06:31 PM
The hunt for Kaizer Chiefs’ new head coach is officially underway, and several names have already been linked with the position as Steve Komphela’s successor.
Patrick Mabedi has been tasked with taking the team forward until the end of the season, with the Amakhosi management seeking to identify the long-term fix prior to the start of the 2018/19 campaign.
When confirming Mabedi as the interim coach earlier this week, the club added, “In the meantime, the search is on to find a new coach for next season.”
A lot has been said about whether Chiefs will go local or foreign when appointing the new coach, but after giving Komphela the gig before undergoing three trophyless seasons, there are strong suggestions that they will be looking to hand the position to somebody who was born outside Mzansi’s borders.
As things stand, the likes of Luc Eymael, Stuart Baxter, Nikola Kavazovic, Doctor Khumalo, Manqoba Mngqithi and Ruud Krol have all had their names thrown in the hat for the job, although the club will not be short of CVs as they filter through the best candidates in the coming weeks.
Check out this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma to see a full breakdown of the candidates and an idea of what could happen at Chiefs before the new season gets underway.

Manqoba mnqithi the guy knws football & he believe mostly in young players means chiefs will be back in business of selling players abroad or luc eymael the guy can revive chiefs by his readiness of the game can easily see who is good where in the team i'll advice chiefs to go for those two leave others for other teams

Thanks bra steve to excuse us, my opinion to Khosi nation , i would say Patrick Mabedi ,Doctor Khumalo and Arthur Zwane can do things right at Naturena. Our players will understand those three guys better than every one. i am still begging you Mr Motaung senior , can you please give us what we are expecting in terms of leader ship. Bobby is not the solution, can you please give Junior that position .once you manage to do that ,there will be a peace and happiness in your mind. I trust those guys, they will deliver .they played very well during their times. they know football. even the younger boys will start to show us some good football.

We need a new foreign coach that is not familiar with SA football.That will help him do the job independently.Doc must be brought back,we know his blood is gold and black.

I think Chiefs need quality players which they don't have right now,only Castro Pass and Katsande are the quality that deserves to play for Chiefs others are all cows.

@HLAKUS it's like Pirates supporters still looking for Bonderingko. The guy is a pensioner now and so is Krol.
