Chiefs aim to bolster technical team


Amakhosi have appointed little known Dutchman Rob Hutting as a technical advisor on a six-month contract, which could be extended depending on how much of an impact he can make and how well he adapts to life in South Africa.

“We acquired the services of Rob Hutting in terms of bolstering the technical team to assist with youth development and the senior team. That’s the plan going forward.

“We are going to make more additions going forward in terms of the technical staff. We are still in negotiations and we are finalising a few details,” Motaung added.

Motaung also said Chiefs are in talks with veteran left-back Tsepo Masilela over a new contract.

Masilela, who has struggled with injury this season, signed a one-year extension which expires at the end of the season.

Goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo is another who is in talks to renew his contract, but speculation is rife that he has signed a pre-contract with Amakhosi’s arch-rivals Orlando Pirates.

“Most players' contracts are still running, except Tsepo I think,” said Motaung.

Chiefs have signed Siphelele Ntshangase, Kabelo Mahlasela and Leonardo Castro and there could be more additions.

“The market is never done, but so far we are quite content with what we have acquired.”

After coming from behind to beat Polokwane City 2-1 at the weekend, Amakhosi will meet Baroka FC in the Absa Premiership at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday (15h30).
