Kaizer Chiefs are undergoing mass changes to their squad. Now, a new coach and possibly a new captain is on the table.
Amakhosi management have made their intentions clear – they want to bring an extra coach to Naturena.
Furthermore, the captaincy situation could also change given the fact that Itumeleng Khune is no longer guaranteed a start.

CHIEFS LOOKING TO BRING IN AN EXTRA COACH
Amakhosi management want to bring in another coach to help Arthur Zwane.
“Chiefs have been trying to bring in an extra coach. it’s not a new thing. It’s new now because results haven’t been coming. It’s Zwane’s first season and as much as he has done well, he still needs to learn a lot,” the insider confirmed on Soccer Laduma.
OPEN LETTER TO KAIZER CHIEFS: FORGET PITSO MOSIMANE, WE NEED BENNI MCCARTHY AT NATURENA
Meaning, we could see co-coaches in charge of the Glamour Boys next season.
Names such as Pitso Mosimane and Manqoba Mngqithi have been thrown up as potential candidates.
In fact, former coach Molefi Ntseki was even offered a coaching position but he declined it.
With a new coach on the table, the possibility of a new captain opens up, especially since Khune is no longer first-choice in goal.
NEW AMAKHOSI CAPTAIN?
We have seen Keagan Dolly and Yusuf Maart wear the captain’s armband in place of Khune this season.
Now, Khune is the second-choice with Brandon Peterson preferred by Zwane between the sticks.
Therefore, Zwane and any future coach coming to Naturena will have to make a huge decision.
Either, Khune must be given his starting place back or they must decide between Dolly and Maart.
It seems that Dolly could lead Amakhosi next season if Khune does not earn his starting berth back.
However, Dolly, 30, is in the latter stages of his career.
So, management must consider more long-term options like Maart or even Zitha Kwinika or new recruit Given Msimango.
