Good News: Chiefs Confirms A Huge Announcement Regarding Their New Coach, See More

Full-time coach Arthur Zwane has been hired by the Kaizer Chiefs. On Thursday morning, the Chiefs made the announcement at their headquarters in Naturena. 

A three-year deal with the Chiefs was signed by Zwane to replace Stuart Baxter, who left the club last month. Dillon Sheppard will be his co-worker. During his time as an assistant coach at Amakhosi's development program, former chief winger Zwane, 48, has taken on the role of shooting guards coach three times alongside assistant Shepard. 

In the last two matches of the Chiefs DStv Premier League, they have won both and earned a top-eight finish, as well as a first-ever final appearance in a European competition for the team since Gavin Hunt's departure. The Covid-19 outbreak was raging in December when Baxter was alone with the Chiefs and he managed to win two and draw one of his three league games. 

Due to the Bucks' appearance in the Premier League final, Orlando Pirates will play two more games in the 2021-22 season, putting the Chiefs in danger of losing their spot in the Premier League standings. 

When Zwane was promoted to head coach, several of the Chiefs' current players were taught by him.
