Kaizer Chiefs have announced the end of Molefi Ntseki’s tenure as Head Coach following a meeting on Monday morning. The decision, reached by mutual consent, comes in light of a series of disappointing results that left the club seeking a new direction.
Stepping in to lead the First Team on an interim basis is Cavin Johnson, who recently took on the role of Head of the Youth Development Academy at Chiefs. Johnson’s expertise and experience will be invaluable in steering the team during this transitional phase. Assisting Johnson in this new role is the current assistant coach, Dillon Sheppard, who will continue in his position under Johnson’s guidance.
Arthur Zwane, who had served as an Assistant Coach, will return to his former role within the club’s development structures, ensuring continuity and stability in the youth development program.

We wish him success in his future endeavors.”
