In a significant turn of events, Kaizer Chiefs Football Club has officially announced the end of Molefi Ntseki’s tenure as Head Coach, following a mutual agreement reached after a meeting on Monday morning. The decision comes in the wake of a string of disappointing results that have left fans and management alike seeking a change in the club’s leadership.
Cavin Johnson, who recently assumed the role of Head of the Youth Development Academy at Chiefs, will step up to take over as the First Team coach on an interim basis. This transitional period will see the current assistant coach, Dillon Sheppard, continue in his role under Johnson’s leadership.
Assistant Coach Arthur Zwane will return to his previous position within the development structures of the club, marking a reshuffle in the coaching staff as part of the club’s strategy to reinvigorate its performance.
Molefi Ntseki originally joined Kaizer Chiefs in June 2021 as the Head of Technical and Youth Development. He subsequently took the reins as the senior team’s Head Coach in June 2023. While results might not have met expectations during his tenure, the Sporting Director, Kaizer Motaung Jr., expressed gratitude for Ntseki’s contributions at both development and senior team levels. He wished Ntseki success in his future endeavors, acknowledging his dedication to the club.
In response, Coach Ntseki thanked Chairman Dr. Kaizer Motaung and the Board of Directors for the opportunity to lead Amakhosi. He extended his best wishes to the team for the remainder of the season, signifying an amicable parting.
As the club enters a new chapter under the guidance of interim Head Coach Cavin Johnson, Chiefs fans and football enthusiasts will be eagerly awaiting the impact of this change on the team’s performance in the coming matches.
