Details Of Solinas’ Amakhosi Contract Revealed
Giovanni Solinas was unveiled by Kaizer Chiefs as their new head coach today, with the Italian penning a deal until 2020 with the Amakhosi.
The Glamour Boys have been on the hunt for a new head coach for some time now following Steve Komphela’s resignation back in January, and after weeks of speculation, they have now confirmed the man who will lead them forward.
Solinas, 50, had two spells with Free State Stars before a stint in Saudia Arabia most recently, and Chiefs’ chairman, Kaizer Motaung, has voiced his hope that the Italian will be a success at Naturena.

With the club confirming a two-year deal with an option for a further year, Motaung told the club’s official website, “We always look at what a coach can do and we believe that with Solinas we have brought in a person with the right mechanism and energy to do well.
“We also looked at recruiting a coach who understands our league, and somebody who can help us do well on the African continent, as we will be participating in the Confederations Cup.
“It’s important to understand that the game of football has become very scientific, which means that the strength of the coach is the technical team around him, even though he will, of course, always be the one in charge. We feel that Solinas is the right guy to guide this process.”
