The arrival of Ntseki

In the latest soccer news, Briefly News reported that Chiefs have announced the appointment of former Bafana Bafana Coach Molefi Ntseki to management and legend Rudolph Seale has reacted to the news.

Seale spoke to Briefly News on Tuesday and said he doesn’t regret seeing the seasoned manager at Naturena because he will bring a wealth of experience. Ntseki has been hired at the back of Hunt’s axing but he joins Amakhosi as a technical advisor and head of youth development.

However, his appointment has fuelled rumours that Chiefs are looking to bring former manager Stuart Baxter back to succeed Hunt. Ntseki previously served at SAFA House under Baxter as his right-hand-man but it remains to be seen if the English tactician will make his return to the Soweto giants.
