In as much as Kaizer Chiefs FC is currently not winning games and trophies, many players want to be part of it, while some top coaches still want to join it. Everytime when Amakhosi as a team is not performing well, there will be some lot of speculations on social media that link different coaches with Chiefs.
Coaches who were once linked with possible move to Amakhosi, include Pitso Mosimane, Steve Barker and others. However, current Baroka FC head coach Dan Malesela, who is amongst the most loved coaches in South Africa, has broken his silence after reports linking him with a move to Kaizer Chiefs FC.
Dan Malesela has broken his silence over long-time speculation linking him with the head coaching position at Kaizer Chiefs.
“I’ve heard that a lot [fans and pundits saying Chiefs needs the enterprising type of football that Dan Malesela plays],” he said.
“Even one time I went to a Chiefs game, before the match, everybody was saying: ‘Hey coach, we heard the news that you are coming to Chiefs and then Chiefs won 3-0’ and they didn’t say anything afterwards.”
“I don’t want to disrespect my club [Baroka]. But any team that is good and that has resources like Kaizer Chiefs, everybody would want to coach there. I don’t want to disrespect my club, I have a contract with them.” he added.
In other news, Kaizer Chiefs FC management is looking forward to sign some new top players with the aim of strengthening their squad in a preparations of ending a trophy-less drought that has been hitting Amakhosi eight years ago
According to the latest reports from some top publications like Soccer Laduma, Kaizer Chiefs FC is interested on signing one of the top wingers who has just got a national team call up (even though it’s a preliminary squad). It has been reported that Chiefs might be looking to sign Richards Bay winger, Sanele Barns.
“The club is interested in bringing another winger(Sanele Barns).” – the report said.
However, if Kaizer Chiefs FC end up signing Sanele Barns, his arrival might make Tebogo Potsane’s future with Amakhosi doubtful since they are both wingers, and Potsane is seem to be failing to break in to the starting line up.
“The club is interested in bringing another winger and that could affect Tebogo’s position and his future at the club. As it is, now his future is bleak. But if he can work to pull up his socks maybe things can change but for now, that’s the positive that he faces and things are not looking for him.” Said the report.
“If the club signs Sanele Barns, then it’s even more difficult for him going forward.”
