While Pitso Mosimane is being heavily linked with the Kaizer Chiefs job, Argentinian tactician Miguel Gamondi seems to be the perfect man for the job.

For his impressive record with Mamelodi Sundowns, where he won several domestic and continental titles, fans believe Pitso is the perfect man for the position.

Amakhosi have been without a head coach since Molefi Ntseki was sacked in October 2023, with Cavin Johnson appointed to the position on an interim basis.

With the 2023/2024 season coming to an end, Chiefs are expected to name a new permanent manager in the coming weeks.

Johnson is poised to leave his position as the interim coach, having struggled to get results for the Phefeni Glamour Boys.

The 65-year-old has managed just six wins in 20 matches, losing seven and drawing seven across all competitions, as per Footy Stats.

Kaizer Chiefs currently occupy the eighth position on the DStv Premier League table, leaving their supporters dejected.

Now, the Naturena outfit will search for a formidable replacement as Alexandre Santos, Jose Peseiro, Benni McCarthy, Mosimane, and Gamondi have all been linked with the job.

Why Miguel Gamondi is perfect for Kaizer Chiefs job

The Young Africans of Tanzania manager is well experienced when it comes to South African football, having led Mamelodi Sundowns to the 2005/06 Premier Soccer League title as co-coach alongside Neil Tovey.

The ex-player has also urged Chiefs to appoint Gamondi, stating the former USM Algier manager can deliver their first trophy since 2015.

Having worked with clubs like CR Belouizdad, Ittihad Kalba, Hassania Agadir, and Wydad AC, Kaizer Chiefs fans should expect a revamp under a Gamondi-led technical crew.

Miguel Gamondi's stats for Yanga SC

The tactician was named Yanga SC's head coach last summer, and after just one season, he led the Dar es Salaam outfit to their 30th league title.

He helped the club secure the crown after amassing 71 points, an unreachable tally for any team in the ongoing Mainland Tanzania Premier League.

Gamondi's Yanga have won 23 of 27 league matches, drawing two and losing just two as they confirmed the title after their 3-1 over Mtibwa Sugar FC on Monday, May 13.

He also led the club to the CAF Champions League quarter-finals, where they lost controversially to Mamelodi Sundowns.

That makes his already impressive CV glow and undoubtedly makes him an attractive proposition to teams like Chiefs, who are desperate for a proven head coach.

Alexandre Santos named favourite for Chiefs job

Sports Brief earlier reported that the club have reportedly found a good candidate to replace Chiefs' Cavin Johnson.

Amakhosi are billed to name a new coach ahead of next season as they continue to shop for a permanent manager.

It has been reported that Alexandre Santos is the leading candidate to become the latest to guide the PSL giants.
