Kaizer Chiefs could be witnessing a new era in the coming season as reports indicate that no fewer than seven appointments will be made.

Amakhosi are set to land a new head coach and the club will want to do everything possible to give him the right foundation to succeed.

It is believed Chiefs are closing on landing a new tactician who will take over the position permanently from interim boss, Cavin Johnson.

In terms of managers, Arthur Zwane was in charge of the club last season and then Molefi Ntseki was employed ahead of the current campaign.

The South African reports that Nteski's appointment was met with criticism and he was unpopular due to his lack of a positive track record.

Before his appointment as Chiefs senior team coach, he had never handled a professional side at the senior level.

Nteski was in charge of Bafana Bafana shortly after Stuart Baxter, but his failure to see the team qualify for the 2021 AFCON saw him sacked.

He then had a brief stint with Chiefs but was sacked before the season was half-done, with Cavin Johnson drafted in to take over temporarily.

Chiefs are now set to appoint a new coach, and it is believed that is just one of many changes expected this summer.

The PSL giants are also said to be considering local coaches for the job, namely Pitso Mosimane and Manqoba Mngqithi.

Amakhosi will go further with a reported six additional appointments geared towards helping the newly appointed tactician succeed.

It is thought that they want a first assistant, second assistant, technical director, fitness trainer, performance analyst, and goalkeeper coach.

Billiat's homecoming suffers setback

Sports Brief earlier reported that former Chiefs star, Khama Billiat's decision to return to his native country of Zimbabwe has not paid off for the attacker.

The former Amakhosi star recently joined Yadah FC in the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League but hasn't experienced the homecoming he would have hoped for.

Billiat has suffered an injury just five games into his stint at the club, having made just five appearances for the new team after nearly eight months of inactivity.
