Why Chiefs’ New Coach Isn’t On The Bench This Weekend

Giovanni Solinas Won't Be On The Bench For Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 14, 2018 09:00 AM
Kaizer Chiefs may have a new head coach at the helm for the new season, but it will be Patrick Mabedi on the bench for the Amakhosi this weekend.
 
 
Chiefs take on Buya Msuthu this morning as they get their Maize Cup campaign underway, with the Glamour Boys looking to defend the title after they won it during their preseason campaign around this time last year.
 
Giovanni Solinas was announced by Chiefs on Friday after penning a two-year deal with a one-year option, but due to the Italian needing to obtain a work permit, it could be a while before he is able to take his place on the bench.
 
On the club’s official website following the announcement, part of their statement read, “The new coach will not be on the bench for Saturday’s Maize Cup.”
 
Meanwhile, Motaung went on to say, “Solinas will sit on the bench as soon as he receives his work permit.”
 
If Chiefs beat Buya Msuthu at Orkney’s James Motlatsi Stadium they will then face either Chippa United or Free State Stars.

An assistant coach material unveiled as head coach. I thank God I hated this team as a 10 year old boy.

We looked good this weekend . I wasn't impressed with Katsande, maybe it's still early. Nthangase, Billiat combination will kill people.....

@blackmeteor, which means we may not see much changes to Prof Komphela and Mapedi 's teams, immense pressure may force Giovanni to rely on experienced players.

You'll never know, maybe cupless Selina has left already to attend to family issues.

@setlaboswana Of the four mentioned, only Rama would be my first choice selection..........As for the new coach, he is a dark horse so time will tell, but I am guessing he will start with tried and tested combo's.

@blackmeteor, if you don't mind mate, will Parker, Katsande, Rama and nyawana constitute the core of Giovanni 's team in the new season in your opinion?

@setlaboswana My heart is with Le Bleus, but I have this very uneasy feeling.......These Croats can fight like wild animals..France is more like a finely-tuned pedigree racehorse.....should be a fascinating contest for the biggest price in sport.

I just hope this is not a true reflection of what to expect from free agents in the new season.

@setlaboswana Do you think Croatia will shake the world tomorrow? I suppose they can, but only if they can neutralize Pogba and Kante.
