Khanye’s Appeal To Chiefs: Doctor Khumalo Should Come Back Home

Changes Suggested For Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - May 05, 2018 03:32 PM

With Kaizer Chiefs expected to appoint a new head coach for next season, an appeal has been made to the club to consider bringing back Doctor Khumalo back to their setup.

“In the meantime, the search is on to find a new coach for next season,” were the words on Chiefs’ statement issued on April 23, when confirming Patrick Mabedi’s appointment as the team’s interim coach, following the resignation of Steve Komphela, who has been the club’s head coach for almost three seasons.

Various names from current PSL coaches and those overseas have been linked with the Chiefs coaching role in recent weeks.

However, a former midfielder at the Soweto giants, Junior Khanye, feels that the process of assembling a new technical team for next season at Amakhosi should begin with bringing back club legend, Doctor Khumalo.

“For next season, Kaizer Chiefs should bring back Doctor Khumalo to be part of their technical team. Doctor Khumalo should come back home. Doctor is more like a son at Kaizer Chiefs, so to speak. I have a lot of belief in him and what he can do. I was fortunate to grow under him and learn from him. He knows the culture of the club. He should be included in Chiefs’ technical team, either as an assistant coach or an advisor, or maybe he and Patrick Mabedi as assistant coaches to whoever will be brought as the head coach.

"Doctor used to talk to us and advised us on what is expected from someone who is a player for Kaizer Chiefs. That’s where we got the message that by signing the contract and wearing Chiefs’ jersey it doesn’t end there, it should be followed by hard work and commitment. That’s why I’m saying that Doc should be brought back to the club,” said Khanye.

From starting off as the technical director at Baroka, Khumalo is set to finish the season as the coach of Baroka, after he replaced MacDonald Makhubedu from his caretaker coach position at the Limpopo outfit last week.

Khanye says it is time for changes to be made at Chiefs.

“It has been clear from the beginning that Chiefs were not going to win the Nedbank Cup, and it wasn’t Steve Komphela’s fault. Steve wasn’t a problem at Chiefs. The truth is that some of the players there don’t deserve to be there. Changes have to be made. They (Chiefs) can keep Siphiwe Tshabalala to build a new-look team around him. He is one guy who has tried his best to make the team tick. The guy has been doing his best to make things happen,” he told the Siya crew.

He has never been good as a coach, he has favoritism which is a big stumbling block for Doc. I like him so much but not to be on our bench please, we don't want commotion in our team we have had enough of that. The new coach must come and chose his own assistant coach and must be allowed to chose the players he wants to bring in and send out. We need change next season.

Leave Doctor alone, please he was there when Khompela was appointed and was not considered for the technical position never mind the assistant position.
