Searching for a New Leader, Potential Replacements for Arthur Zwane at Kaizer Chiefs

Searching for a New Leader, Potential Replacements for Arthur Zwane at Kaizer Chiefs

...By Lola Smith for TDPel Media.

As Arthur Zwane faces criticism for yet another underwhelming season at Kaizer Chiefs, the club’s prolonged trophy drought and failure to qualify for the CAF Champions League next season have raised speculation about his future.


Could there be a managerial change on the horizon? Let’s examine some potential replacements for Zwane.

Manqoba Mngqithi – A Likely Bet

Manqoba Mngqithi has been linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs for some time, especially since Rhulani Mokwena assumed sole charge of Mamelodi Sundowns.

This opportunity would allow the 52-year-old coach to prove himself at the highest level once again, but this time on his own terms.

With extensive experience in managing top-flight teams in South Africa, Mngqithi could be a strong contender for the role.

Analysis and Commentary

Manqoba Mngqithi’s potential appointment would bring a fresh perspective to Kaizer Chiefs, given his track record and knowledge of South African football.

His experience could prove invaluable in guiding the team towards success and ending their trophy drought.


However, it remains to be seen if the club will pursue this option and if Mngqithi is willing to make the move.

Gavin Hunt – A Sneaky Return?

Gavin Hunt is a well-established figure in South African football, having achieved success in various coaching roles, including a previous stint with Kaizer Chiefs.

While he is currently excelling as the head coach of SuperSport United, the allure of returning to the Glamour Boys could be tempting.

Hunt’s familiarity with the club and deep understanding of the Premier Soccer League make him an intriguing option, although it is uncertain if he would be open to a second spell with Chiefs.

Analysis and Commentary

Gavin Hunt’s potential return to Kaizer Chiefs would bring a blend of familiarity and experience to the managerial position.

Having already worked with the club in the past, he possesses insights into its dynamics and demands.

If given the opportunity, Hunt could use his knowledge of the league to reinvigorate the team and strive for better results.

However, it remains to be seen if he would be willing to leave his current position for a second chance with Chiefs.


Pitso Mosimane – The Dream Manager

No discussion of potential replacements would be complete without mentioning Pitso Mosimane.

With an illustrious managerial career and an impressive record, Mosimane’s next move remains uncertain.

While he represented Orlando Pirates as a player in 1989, the possibility of seeing him at the helm of Kaizer Chiefs cannot be ruled out.

However, for now, Mosimane seems focused on achieving success in Saudi Arabia with Al-Ahli Saudi in the Saudi Pro League.

Analysis and Commentary

Pitso Mosimane’s inclusion in the list of potential replacements highlights his stature in the world of football management.

His track record speaks for itself, and his appointment would undoubtedly bring excitement and expectations to Kaizer Chiefs.

However, given his current commitment to Al-Ahli Saudi, it appears unlikely that a move to Chiefs is imminent.

Fans may have to wait for the right opportunity to see Mosimane take charge at Naturena.



As Arthur Zwane faces scrutiny following another disappointing season for Kaizer Chiefs, the club’s management may be considering alternatives.

The potential replacements, including Manqoba Mngqithi, Gavin Hunt, and Pitso Mosimane, each bring unique qualities and experiences that could benefit the team.

While it remains to be seen who will ultimately assume the managerial position, the decision will significantly impact the future direction
