Following a meeting on Monday morning, Molefi Ntseki’s tenure as Head Coach of Kaizer Chiefs has ended amicably by mutual consent. Given the recent run of disappointing results, the parties agreed that this was the best course of action under the prevailing circumstances.

Cavin Johnson, who recently joined Chiefs as Head of the Youth Development Academy, will take over as the First Team coach on an interim basis. Current assistant coach, Dillon Sheppard will retain his position under Johnson.

Assistant Coach, Arthur Zwane will return to his former role within the development structures of the Club.

Coach Ntseki arrived at Chiefs in June 2021 as Head of Technical and Youth Development. He took over as the senior team Head Coach in June 2023.

“I would like to thank Coach Ntseki for his contribution to the Club since he arrived here, both at development level and with the senior team. We wish him success in his future endeavours,” said Sporting Director, Kaizer Motaung Jr.

The departing coach expressed his gratitude to the Chairman, Dr. Kaizer Motaung, and the Board of Directors for the opportunity to coach Amakhosi, and wished the team all the best for the rest of the season.”
