Solinas’ First Words As Amakhosi Coach
Giovanni Solinas knows that he’s taken on a big job at Kaizer Chiefs, saying he’ll ‘work hard day and night’ to try and bring success back to Naturena.
The 50-year-old was unveiled by the Glamour Boys on Friday afternoon after weeks of speculation regarding Steve Komphela’s successor at the club, with the former Free State Stars penning a two-year deal with a one-year option.
With pre-season already underway, it remains to be seen when – or if – Solinas will make the trip out to Potchefstroom to join his new players, although the club says that they’re waiting on him to receive his work permit.
Now, with a new chapter in his career on the horizon, the Italian has spoken about his move, discussing how big Chiefs are as a football club.
He told the club’s official website, “It’s a big opportunity as Kaizer Chiefs are a big club, not only in South Africa but also on the African continent. Coaching a club of this magnitude comes with a big responsibility. I will work hard day and night to make the Kaizer Chiefs Family and the supporters happy.”
Solinas had two spells in South Africa prior to joining Chiefs, both with Ea Lla Koto.
