Kaizer Chiefs’ Management in Turmoil: Arthur Zwane and Molefi Ntseki Face Uncertain Future

...By Lola Smith for TDPel Media.

Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Arthur Zwane’s position as head coach of Kaizer Chiefs, recent developments suggest that he is not the only one facing potential consequences at the club.


The Chiefs had a tumultuous season, setting a record for the highest number of losses in a Premier Soccer League season with 12 defeats.

As discussions and deliberations take place to determine the way forward for both Zwane and the club, it has emerged that another member of the technical team might also face the possibility of losing their job.

That individual is believed to be Molefi Ntseki.

Ntseki joined Chiefs two seasons ago, alongside former coach Stuart Baxter.

While Baxter’s return to the club was short-lived, Ntseki has had a longer tenure, overseeing football matters from the youth set-up to the first team at Naturena.

However, it should be noted that Ntseki’s appointment predates that of current sporting director Kaizer Motaung Jnr, who has expressed his long-term vision for the club and hinted that certain decisions might have been different had he held his role earlier.


With Kaizer Chiefs enduring a disappointing season, questions are being raised not only about Zwane but also about the overall management structure surrounding him.

According to Soccer-Laduma, Ntseki’s position is far from secure.

The club is reportedly set to review his role as head of youth and technical, assessing whether he is still suitable for the job.

While Ntseki’s contributions to the development set-up have been acknowledged internally, Chiefs’ eight-year trophy drought naturally prompts inquiries and evaluations.

The publication states, “The feeling internally is that the veteran mentor should not be pressing the panic buttons due to the work he has put in behind the scenes with the development set-up.

But with Chiefs’ trophy drought extending to eight years, it is only natural that questions be asked.”

Thus, while Ntseki appears to be safe for the time being, the same cannot be guaranteed for Zwane and his position at Chiefs.
