- Football fans have expressed wanting Kaizer Chiefs to bring Doctor Khumalo into the team's coaching staff
- Their approval comes shortly after the team rumours that Doc would be assisting Gavin Hunt and Kwanele Kopo in the coaching team
- Kaizer Chiefs are said to be replacing Ernst Middendorp as well as Shaun Bartlett after the two failed to secure the PSL league title a few weeks ago
Kaizer Chiefs fans seem to be welcoming the prospect of having Doctor - otherwise affectionately called Doc Khumalo - onto the team's newly-put-together coaching team. The legendary footballer is both a former midfielder for the team and South Africa's Bafana Bafana player.
After his blooming career as a player, Doctor Khumalo excelled in his role as coach assistant for SuperSport United alongside coach Stuart Baxter. The two dominated the domestic league between the years 2012 to 2015.
The football legend then took a short break from his football career, distancing himself from the sport after finishing work with Baroka FC in 2018. His fans however seemingly did not stop seeing his greatness and are now welcoming him to assist Kaizer Chiefs to make a come-back from their PSL loss.
Here are some of their comments.
"Chiefs will win again if they have this kind of combination in coaching staff. This is what made Chiefs champions. Just bring Doctor Khumalo back uzobona."
@bm213791 again said:
"We really need a motivator and that's Doctor Khumalo. We last won trophies under Doc and Baxter. Doctor Khumalo is Kaizer Chiefs we really need him kule team."
"Good move bra K, now sign the following in consultation with Hunt and Doc, Gordihno, Hlanti, Gerbhandt, DeReuck, Mthethwa, Alexander, Mosele, Nange, Monare, Rakhale, Erasmus, Ntuli."
