- Patrick Mabedi and Arthur Zwane are set to lead Kaizer Chiefs during their first pre-season training camp which starts next week
- Mabedi currently serves as the club’s assistant coach while Zwane is in charge of the MultiChoice Diski Challenge side
- The pair will lead the club while the head coach position remains vacant
Kaizer Chiefs players are expected to report for their first pre-season training camp on Monday. The club has confirmed that the training camp will be headed by the club’s assistant coach Patrick Mabedi and Arthur Zwane who heads up the successful MultiChoice Diski Challenge side.
This arrangement has been forced on the club because it still hasn’t signed a new head coach. The position has been vacant since Steve Komphela quit two months ago following the team’s exit from the Nedbank Cup.
Kaizer Chiefs are believed to be desperate to lure current Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter back to the club. Baxter is thought to be at the top of the club’s wish list.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Baxter originally joined Kaizer Chiefs in 2013 and brought near instant success to the glamour side. Under his guidance the team completed the domestic double, winning both the league title and Nedbank Cup.
Baxter left in 2015 to take on his current role of coaching the national side.
KickOff.co.za reported that Chiefs has begun making tweaks to its squad and recently confirmed the departure of five players.
Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the club had just announced signing Khama Billiat, Letlhogonolo Mirwa and Andriamirado Andrianarimanana for next season.
The Amakhosi faithful have grown frustrated with the apparent lack of progress at the club in appointing a new coach and missing out on some key signings.
