Kaizer Chiefs have officially announced Arthur Zwane as their new head coach for the next three seasons, the club confirmed on Thursday.
Zwane has been the Amakhosi interim coach alongside Dillon Sheppard since the departure of Stuart Baxter in April.
The 48-year-old raised his hand several times for the coaching job, and while a section of Chiefs fans felt he wasn’t ready, the management believe he’s the right man for the job.
Chiefs Football Manager Bobby Motaung said the process of looking for a coach has been going for a while, adding that they were looking for a long-term vision.
HOW DID ZWANE FARE AS KAIZER CHIEFS COACH?
The Chiefs management’s decision to hand Zwane the job on the interim came as no surprise as this was the case when Gavin Hunt was sacked in May 2021
At the time, Chiefs were at risk of missing out on finishing inside the top eight at times at the end of the season.
However, Zwane came in and saved the day as Chiefs secured their place for the 2021-22 MTN8 Cup as they finished the campaign in eighth position.
