  • Kaizer Chiefs had a chaotic 2023/24 season, where they finished 10th in the DStv Premiership, 37 points behind champions, Mamelodi Sundowns
  • Amakhosi have not won a trophy in nine years and are looking for a new coach, perhaps Nasreddine Nabi, to help rejuvenate the team
  • Their rivals, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns, made more money than Chiefs on the pitch last season, a gap they hope to close

Kaizer Chiefs had a disastrous 2023/24 season.

The Soweto giants finished 10th in the DStv Premiership, making it their worst in the PSL era.

Despite their dismal season, Amakhosi still made money, but it was way less than rivals Orlando Pirates and league champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

Their 2023/24 season perfectly exemplifies how far the club has fallen. It also marked nine years since the club last won a trophy.

Kaizer Chiefs were eliminated in the last 32 of the Nedbank Cup by Milford FC, and in September 2023, they were knocked out of MTN8 by Mamelodi Sundowns.

They are set for a busy off-season, and their first task on the agenda is to appoint a new coach. AS FAR Rabat coach, Nasreddine Nabi, is the frontrunner for the role, per SABC Sport.

According to Football SA, Chiefs earned R800 000 in the MTN8, R550 000 in the Carling Knockout, R100 000 in the Nedbank Cup, and R850 000 in the DStv Premiership, amounting to a total of over R2 million.

The Glamour Boys have some work to do to close the gap between them and their rivals.

Why local coaches fail at Kaizer Chiefs

Sports Brief earlier also reported on chairman, Kaizer Motaung, explaining why local coaches struggle at Kaizer Chiefs.

He encouraged local coaches to acquire more knowledge in their craft to improve their capabilities, as Pitso Mosimane has.

What is Kaizer Chiefs' biggest problem?

Sports Brief also previously reported on Tefu Mashamaite, highlighting the major issue Kaizer Chiefs must resolve to become competitive again.

The retired defender called on Amakhosi to create a culture, emphasising that players aren't always to blame when things go wrong.
