Chiefs planning for life after Hunt

Meanwhile, Briefly News reported that the Glamour Boys have appointed Molefi Ntseki as a technical advisor and head of youth development.

Club legend Rudolph Seale has reacted to Ntseki's appointment after the Chiefs' announcement. 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, and his appointment has fuelled the rumours that Chiefs are looking to bring former manager Stuart Baxter back to succeed Hunt.
