Zwane remains coy over Chiefs job

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Arthur Zwane has remained coy on his future with the club after steering Amakhosi to a top-eight finish in the final two games of the season.

Zwane, 47, was announced as caretaker alongside Dillon Sheppard after the sacking of Gavin Hunt last month after a dismal run of two wins in 17 league games.

But six points from their final two games of the 2020/21 DStv Premiership campaign ensured they finished in the top-half of the table and qualified for next season's MTN8 competition.

With Stuart Baxter touted as favourite to succeed Hunt, calls for Zwane to be offered the opportunity to lead the club he represented as a player - but '10111' says he's in no hurry.

"I'm one person that you know, takes one step at a time," he told media representatives in an online press conference.

"I believe that I'm a student of the game, so whether I'll be part of the first team next season or not, I'm still part of Kaizer Chiefs because I'm the reserve team coach.

"So when given the opportunity you always give your best and if things work out you move on. This was a good learning curve for me, being given the opportunity with myself, Dylan, and the rest of the technical staff, obviously, to take the team forward.

"Fortunately, we managed to get maximum points in both games. So yeah, what's next? Whatever that happens, you know, it will still benefit us as a team, because it will be for the good of making sure that gets better, and will get where it belongs.

"Not because maybe Arthur is not good enough. It will be because we believe that now if we bring this new personnel or these people, they will take the team forward and we’ll give them our support because that's what we’re supposed to do as coaches."
