Kaizer Chiefs Confirm Appointment Of New Coach

South Africa Premier Soccer League side Kaizer Chiefs has appointed Arthur Jabulani Zwane as their new manager.

The Amakhosi parted ways with Stuart Baxter this year in April with Zwane taking over as the interim coach. And now Zwane has been appointed as the manager, signing a three year deal.

Zwane has served as an assistant manager of Kaizer Chiefs on several occasions in the past and recently he led the team for the final seven league matches of the 2021/22 season.

“We would like to take this opportunity and congratulate coach Arthur Zwane for this big appointment. The plan we have been working on for many years of appointing Arthur as our Head Coach has come to fruition,” club chairman Kaizer Motaung said on Thursday.

“ After seeing his passion for the game and his willingness to learn, we have been looking to bring him through to lead the senior when the time is right and we believe that time is now.

“We are also grateful that he has been patient and continued to work hard to advance his coaching skills and abilities by educating himself, which is key in the modern game.”

Zwane will be assisted by Dillon Sheppard, who joined Chiefs in 2020 as assistant coach.

Zwane gained international experience when he was called up as an assistant coach for Bafana Bafana in 2020 and 2021, working with Molefi Ntseki, who is now Kaizer Chiefs’ Head of Technical and Development.

He holds a UEFA B Licence Coaching Badge, as well as CAF A and B Licence Coaching Badges.
