Former Bafana Bafana star, Arthur Zwane, will remain at Kaizer Chiefs despite the restructuring processes at the club.

The 50-year-old is set for an exciting new role, as he is billed to take over Cavin Johnson’s old role as head of youth development.

Following the sacking of Molefi Ntseki last year, Johnson was named to take charge of the senior Amakhosi squad temporarily.

The club finished the season on a poor note, crashing out of the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup and ending the DStv Premiership in 10th position.

Amakhosi fans want Johnson completely gone

Angry fans are calling for Johnson's total exit from the club, as Tunisian tactician Nasreddine Nabi is set to be announced as the new head coach, while Zwane heads the youth development department.

Soccer Laduma said in a report:

"Having served in a number of vocations at the club like the DStv Diski Challenge Head coach, First team assistant coach and the first team head coach, Arthur Zwane is the man touted to take over Johnson’s role.
"There has been a lot of uncertainty regarding Zwane’s role at Chiefs, with the club merely stating that he would be returning to ‘his previous role’ though it is uncertain which role that is."

Mass Exodus at Kaizer Chiefs

Meanwhile, 22-year-old star Samkelo Zwane is poised to leave Naturena on loan at the start of next season.

While Siyethemba Sithebe has been released, there are doubts over the future of Edson Castillo; the club could keep Zwane around.

Chiefs close in on Orlando Pirates' star

Sports Brief earlier reported that Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly in pole position to sign Orlando Pirates star as Sifiso Hlanti's replacement in this summer transfer window.

The Glamour Boys are in the transfer market, searching for a new left-back after Hlanti was released alongside Keagan Dolly, Siyethemba Sithebe, Njabulo Ngcobo, and Jason Gonzalez.

Nasreddine Nabi reportedly suggested that Amakhosi should sign the Buccaneers defender as the club's new left-back for next season.
