Motaung confident Zwane will lead AmaKhosi to glory

Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung is confident that newly-appointed coach Arthur Zwane is quite capable of leading AmaKhosi back to the glory days.

On Thursday, the 48-year-old Zwane was officially appointed on a three-year deal as the senior team's head coach.

In an interview on the clubs official website, Motaung Snr. congratulated Zwane on his appointment and was glad that he had fulfilled their plan of having stepped up from being a player to an assistant coach and now becoming the full-time main coach of the club.

"We would like to take this opportunity and congratulate coach Arthur Zwane for this big appointment. The plan we have been working on for many years of appointing Arthur as our head coach has come to fruition," said Motaung.

"After seeing his passion for the game and his willingness to learn, we have been looking to bring him through to lead the senior when the time is right and we believe that time is now. We are also grateful that he has been patient and continued to work hard to advance his coaching skills and abilities by educating himself, which is key in the modern game.

"Arthur is the someone who grew up at Chiefs and has a full understanding of our culture. We did say last year when we appointed the Sporting Director and Head of Technical that we wanted them to work with people who understand our philosophy.

"This is important as the coach works closely with those two gentlemen on a daily basis," the Chairman added.

Zwane is to be assisted by Dillon Sheppard. The two have been working together as assistant coaches over the last two seasons and work well as a team.
