Confirmed: Chiefs Appoint Interim Head Coach

Kaizer Chiefs Have Appointed Patrick Mabedi As Interim Head Coach

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 23, 2018 03:37 PM

As predicted by the Siya crew, Kaizer Chiefs have named one of their club legends as interim coach until the end of the season following Steve Komphela’s exit.

Read: Who Took Charge Of Chiefs' First Post-Komphela Session?

The crew reported earlier this week that Patrick Mabedi, who was brought in as Komphela's assistant, had taken their first training session after his resignation, and that he was expected to take on the role until the end of the season.

That news has since been confirmed by the Amakhosi, who explained that he will take charge for the final three games against Golden Arrows, Maritzburg United and Ajax Cape Town. 

A statement was released by the club today that read:

Following the resignation of head coach Steve Komphela, Kaizer Chiefs have decided that Patrick Mabedi will take charge of the first team for the remainder of the 2017/2018 season. The Malawian was the assistant to Komphela.

Mabedi played for Amakhosi from 1998 to 2006. The former defender captained the side to back-to-back Premiership titles in 2004 and 2005, while he was also part of the team that won glory on the African continent, winning the 2001 African Cup Winners’ Cup. The 44-year-old returned to Chiefs at the beginning of this season from Cape Town All Stars, where he was the head coach.
 
Mabedi will be assisted on the bench by Arthur Zwane, who is in charge of Chiefs’ reserve team. Zwane joined Amakhosi in 2000, playing for the first team until 2010. In the meantime, the search is on to find a new coach for next season.

One thing that I've learnt is that the management, when deciding whether to hang on to a coach or not, they should take their fans into consideration. If you know that you are a well supported team, you cannot do things as if you are Platinum Stars. The Khomphela situation has been coming. Chiefs should have analysed and laid Khomphela down because it was clear that fans had run out of patience. For Chiefs management to continue as if they were not aware of the risks involve by keeping Khomphela on the bench wasn't wise and they have to take responsibility. When you budget or estimate you profits, am certain that you factor in the support you receive from fans and supporters, yet when you analyse the risks you fail to factor in their wishes, mood, etc. Isn't there risk analysis at Chiefs?

I'd suggest you leave Bobby's name out of this coz he told ages ago he was not hired with a CV and that the FC stands for Family Company and last he said you must all futsssekk from his dad's team, I've taken it as my duty to remind you all day till you get it in your thick yet empty skulls

Mabedi should have followed coach Steve as well if they want to fix things.

Mabedi is a culprit on Khomphela's poor performance. He is the one who sabotaged him(Steve).

in top teams. i mean really big teams,when they fire the coach,they also let go of his technical team(assistants) . One would assume that by the assistant agreeing to be caretaker coach its a sign of back-stabbing the departing coach. The management should know that what is in the main coach and the assistants is one philosophy. Im guessing things are done differently in small teams(SA teams)
