Kaizer Chiefs: Did somebody call the POLICE? 10111 is in the building!
“I think we are not lost in the fact that we need to succeed; we have had to re-evaluate what success means for us, and to get the right level of success on a long-term basis, it is very important that the foundation that you lay is it impeccable.
Kaizer Chiefs have officially appointed Arthur Jabulani Zwane as the senior team’s head coach on a three-year deal, effective immediately.
Soweto-born Zwane has previously stood in as the head coach on a temporary basis at various times in the past – most recently in April following the departure of Stuart Baxter – where he led the team for the final seven league matches of the 2021/22 season.
Earlier in the campaign he had taken the helm for three matches leading up to the festive break during the Covid-19 outbreak in December 2021.
He was also in charge towards the end of last season, overseeing the team in the last two DStv Premiership matches of the 2020/21 season and the two-legged CAF Champions League semi-final against Wydad Casablanca.
He won the league matches and managed to sneak the team into the top 8 on the last day and qualified Kaizer Chiefs for the historic CAF Champions League finals.
With 22 years of service under his belt, Zwane is as steeped in the traditions and culture of Kaizer Chiefs as one can be.
He enjoyed an illustrious career as a skilful winger, amassing 32 goals in 252 appearances in all competitions for Amakhosi.
“And having gone through every single stage, as a player and in the youth academy and also having furthered himself with coaching badges [UEFA B Licence Coaching Badge, as well as CAF A and B Licence] and the experiences that coach Arthur has, I think that has made him an ideal candidate to take this project to the future.”
