Chiefs coach undertakes UEFA journey


Kaizer Chiefs reserve team coach Arthur Zwane is set to jet out to Europe as he looks to further his learnings as a football tactician.

Zwane, 45, is currently heading up Chiefs’ Multichocie Diski Challenge side, whom he led to the inaugural Diski Shield in 2018.

The former Amakhosi winger, who retired in 2010, is now looking to further upskill himself by attending the UEFA B coaching course in Ireland.

“I’ve done my ‘B’ and my ‘A’ in South Africa, so I just want to learn more about the game,” explained Zwane on his club’s website.

“It’s not about having certificates; it’s about equipping myself with the right information and understanding the game better.

“It’s important for me to be on the same page with the rest of the world and see the different approaches when it comes to coaching and mentoring young people.

“There is an aspect of integrating them from the lower leagues and preparing them for the highest level. Learning is the most important thing.”

“10111”,  as he is affectionately known, is hoping to bring back his knowledge and instil it into the Chiefs philosophy as they embark on the new and improved MDC campaign next season.

“I will bring the experience back to Kaizer Chiefs because I’ll be there representing the club and I am grateful for the opportunity and support given to me by the management,” he added.

Former Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United midfielder Daine Klate, currently on the books of Chippa United, also recently completed his UEFA B and A-1 courses with the Irish Football Association in Dublin.
