...By Lola Smith for TDPel Media.

The search for a new coach at Kaizer Chiefs has narrowed down to a few notable names, including Pitso Mosimane, Molefi Ntseki, and Manqoba Mngqithi.


Recent developments indicate that Mngqithi is the frontrunner for the position, signaling a potential new era for the club.

Ntseki Declines Coaching Offer:

To kick things off, it has been revealed that former Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki has declined the offer to coach Amakhosi.

This decision eliminates him as a potential candidate for the position, narrowing down the options.

Mngqithi as the Leading Candidate:

Manqoba Mngqithi has emerged as the leading candidate for the Kaizer Chiefs coaching role, attracting the attention of the management.

With his previous success as the head coach of Mamelodi Sundowns, Mngqithi has become a highly sought-after free agent in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

Chiefs Management’s Interest in Mngqithi:

The news of Kaizer Chiefs’ interest in Manqoba Mngqithi has caused a stir among fans and pundits.

The management is fully aware of the potential Mngqithi possesses and is keen to secure his services.

Rumors within Naturena suggest that discussions regarding the appointment of Mngqithi are taking place, with a possible offer in the works.

Potential Impact on Arthur Zwane:

Arthur Zwane, currently part of the coaching setup at Kaizer Chiefs, may face uncertain times if Mngqithi joins the club.

If Chiefs’ management decides to bring in Mngqithi, it could imply Zwane’s departure from Naturena. However, there is a chance that Zwane might be retained if he agrees to work under the guidance of a more senior coach.

Yet, it is understood that Zwane is not inclined to operate within such a system, leaving his future at the club uncertain.

Changes in Coaching and Captaincy:

The likely appointment of a new coach at Kaizer Chiefs may bring about further changes within the team.

Even if Zwane remains, there could be a shift towards a co-coaching structure.


This means that a new coach will be taking over, potentially altering the dynamics and strategies of the team.

Additionally, there could be a change in the captaincy, with Itumeleng Khune no longer being the first choice.

The management’s interest in Mngqithi indicates their determination to secure his services.

These developments raise questions about the future of Arthur Zwane and the potential changes in the coaching structure and team captaincy.

Exciting times lie ahead for Amakhosi as they navigate the process of reshaping the club for the upcoming season.
