- Kgoloko Thobejane says he can turn Kaizer Chiefs around
- His remarks come as Chiefs end the season on a low note
- Thobejane claimed that he is a better coach than both Solinas and Middendorp combined
Kgoloko Thobejane has said he is confident that he could improve Kaizer Chiefs and help the team return to its former glory.
His comments come as Chiefs end off the season ninth in the league following a 1–0 loss to TS Galaxy.
Consequently, Thobejane says he could have had more success had he been the coach.
"I can build Chiefs to be a very strong team," Thobejane said, adding that, under his leadership, others teams would respect Amakhosi once again, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
Thobejane, renowned as the former coach of Baroka FC, is currently without a team. He has not coached a side since he was dismissed by Gauteng ABC Motsepe League side Ma-Lions FC six months ago, according to Times Live.
Despite being away from coaching for so long, Thobejane believes that he can make Kaizer Chiefs champions once more. Indeed, he said that he thought he would be a better coach than "[Giovanni] Solinas and Ernst Middendorp combined."
Thobejane's comments come as speculation mounts as to whether current Kaizer Chiefs coach, Ernst Middendorp, will stay on or be replaced. Additionally, some have wondered whether replacing the coach will even have an impact on the team's performance.
Middendorp, for one, has said that Amakhosi's fall from glory is not due to any single factor like a coach, but rather has been a gradual process resulting from several different trends.
