Cape Town – Kaizer Chiefs have outlined their requirements for a new head coach as they look to make an imminent appointment for the managerial position vacated by Steve Komphela.
Chiefs who have been strongly linked with former head coach and current Bafana Bafana mentor Stuart Baxter say they aim to appoint a coach with continental experience.
“We want a coach with continental experience, football manager Bobby Motaung told KickOff. “Someone that will be a father figure to the team, a coach that will have an understanding of the league challenges and a high-profile coach with a pedigree.
“Someone very experienced who will take this team to another level, Motaung added.”
Amakhosi have been strongly linked to Englishman Baxter who is the last coach to taste success with the Soweto giants having enjoyed a successful period at the club from 2012 to 2015.
The 64-year-old won back-to-back league and cup doubles while at Chiefs with the club failing to lift a trophy in three seasons under his replacement Steve Komphela.
In related news Baroka FC confirmed that technical director Doctor Khumalo has left the club with it being speculated that he is set to join Baxter’s coaching staff as an assistant at Chiefs.
