South African tactician Pitso Mosimane has raised questions after Kaizer Chiefs supporters suggested that he is the only one who could improve the club's fortunes.

He returned to South Africa after a short spell with Saudi outfit Abha Club who were eventually relegated from the Saudi Pro League in the final round of games.

While the manager was away in the Middle East, he was heavily linked with the Kaizer Chiefs coaching job after Molefi Ntseki was sacked.

Amakhosi appointed Cavin Johnson to handle the team on an interim basis, but they finished the season without silverware.

Chiefs ended the 2023/2024 DStv Premiership in 10th position, their worst since the start of the PSL era.

There have been continued calls for the Soweto Giants to appoint the former Al Ahly and Mamelodi Sundowns star as their new head coach, but the manager has some words.

He told iDiski Times:

"First I would like to know why am I the only one when there are many coaches in the world who can fix Kaizer Chiefs.
"There are good German coaches and Serbian coaches; they have all the coaches, why am I the only one to fix that? There’s a lot of people who can fix it.
"Secondly - do Chiefs want to win MTN8 and then say they’ve turned the corner, or [do] you [want to] fix the team for the next eight to 10 years?
"You know, you come, you win the top eight, three games. Then you’ve turned the corner?"

Kaizer Chiefs linked with two strikers

Sports Brief also reported that Kaizer Chiefs are prepared to add new players to their attacking department ahead of Nasreddine Nabi's arrival before the 2024-25 season starts.

The struggling Soweto giants are reportedly being linked with two strikers, Lebo Mothiba and Tumisang Orebonye, in the summer transfer window, according to the latest reports.

Mothiba is a free agent after being released by French Ligue 1 side Strasbourg this summer. He is said to be seeking a new project for next season and Chiefs could use his skills.
