“My strength is the commercialisation of the game, I think that’s important looking at where African clubs are and the opportunity to get corporates and just get clients to the game and the marketing of the game.

Kaizer Chiefs FC management is one of the management in South Africa that is being criticized by football fans because of how they address Chiefs issues. Chiefs management is not just being criticized by fans, but also top analysers.
Here is what our analyser Senzo Sambo analysed about Chiefs back in 2021, after the management, sacking Gavin Hunt.
“Gavin Hunt doesn’t sound bitter at all when he talks about Chiefs
Maintains they’re the biggest club in the country. Feels he would still be there if he was “closer” to the Chairman
And so on.
Guys Gavin Hunt saw the problems but Kaizer Chiefs decided to give them new contracts. It’s clear from Gavin Hunt interview a person who coached those players that some senior players and people in management are sabotaging the team on purpose.” – he added.
