Newly Appointed Kaizer Chiefs Coach Promises not to Apply Hitler 's Leadership Approach

Leaders of different institutions are those people their subordinates looks up to for guidance and directions. In most cases they are the bosses and they run things around, everybody adhere to their instructions. I must say that leaders are the most feared for the power they hold in an institution. When things don't go well or according to the plan and the expectations of the owners, those in charge of leading will have a responsibility to account.

Now in football, coaching is the most difficult job or position to hold and it comes with a lot of pressure, as a coach your head is always on the block, reason being that when results are not forthcoming your head get chopped. You are expected to always bringfourth expected results with silverwareso, when you yield good results everyone is happy, all the stakeholders are happy then you are guaranteed a long stay.

With recent announcement in the early hours of the day from Kaizer Chiefs who held a press conference at FNB stadium, Coach Arthur Zwane was unveiled as a now permanent head coach of the senior team. 10111 as he is popularly known and a nickname he inherited during his playing days for the speed he possesses back then hailed from the development structures of the team, where he was leading the MDC multi challenge.

Having done a tremendous job leading the MDC multi challenge team, he was then lured in to the first team where he became an assistant coach to former coach Gavin Hunt together with Dillion Sheperd in 2020. When Gavin left he became a caretaker coaches with Dillion and managed to take Chiefs in the first ever CAF Championship final but later towards the final, Coach Stuart Baxter was then hired and took charge in the final. But again due to poor Performances, Zwane and Dillion were once again called to lead the senior team as caretakers after the sacking of coach Baxter towards the end of 2021/2022 season.

Thursday morning we woke up to hear that Kaizer Chiefs called in members of the media to their press conference that was held at FNB stadium, as speculated Zwane was named the first team coach and he mentioned few things about the kind of a leader he would be. 10111 is sending a strong massage that he is not going to use a Hitler kind of leadership where one uses force and whatever one says goes.

Coach Zwane emphasised more on the calm and collected method, referring to how chairman of the club Kaizer Motaung behaved himself as a man of peace and love and that everything about him and all that he learnt is about love and peace of the club and he represent just that. "If you want to apply for failure, just be a Hitler and rule like him. What you say goes and you don't want to listen to other people."

I personally welcome his appointment and wish him the best of luck for the tough job ahead, once again I must say that leading is not an easy task but with the necessary support and the resources, your chances of making it are high. We look forward to see if Zwane will bring back happy days at Naturena after seven full years without silverware.
