According to The Citizen, former Botswana nation coach Adel Amrouche is the latest manager to take over at the Naturena.

The Algerian was considered for the coaching role before, but the Amakhosi opted to go with Gavin Hunt at that stage. The Citizen noted that Amrouche was not in the current at present but would be arriving in South Africa during the course of the month. It is unclear why he will be in the country.

Former Al Ahly assistant manager Cavin Johnson also said he would be honoured to take up the coaching role if offered to him. Another familiar face who is keen on the job is Arthur Zwane. Zwane is currently in charge of the club, with Dillon Sheppard in an interim position.

As reported by The South African, Zwane has expressed interest in the role, saying that every coach wants to grow. Kaizer Motaung is also a fan of Arthur Zwane taking over.

“You will never be better if you are not in the thick of things. If the opportunity comes my way, I will take it,” Zwane said.

Arthur Zwane gives an honest assessment of Kaizer Chiefs, admits some players may not be good enough for the club

The end of the season could not come fast enough for Kaizer Chiefs. On the back of four straight defeats, things are not looking promising for the Amakhosi, even after firing Stuart Baxter, Sports Brief reported.

Interim co-coach, Arthur Zwane, admitted a need for change and rebuilding at the club. Kaizer Chiefs have not won a trophy in seven seasons, a stat indicative of just how the Soweto giants have fallen.

Speaking after the recent loss to Cape Town City, Arthur Zwane admitted that some players were not good enough to represent a big brand like Kaizer Chiefs, Times LIVE reported.
