Former South African senior national team coach Molefi Ntseki has been appointed by CAF Champions League semi finalists Kaizer Chiefs.
Ntseki was axed by the South African football association in March after he failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations with Bafana Bafana. There was talk that he could be one of new coach Hugo Broos’ assistants in the national team, but he has since been named the Head of Technical and Development at Chiefs.
The 51-year-old Ntseki has signed a three-year contract with Chiefs, with an option to extend for a further two years.
Ntseki will have the responsibility of advising on all technical operations and developing the strategy for the senior team, Kaizer Chiefs Youth Development Academy and the reserves.
“We are delighted to have Molefi Ntseki at Kaizer Chiefs. Molefi comes at the right time as we implement changes that we believe are necessary for the Club as we go into the future,” Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung said on the club website.
“We strongly believe that we have appointed the right person for the position as he is someone who has really worked at all stages of football, from school level, youth structures and all our national teams.
“We want to make progress in the way we run our football technical operations at all levels. We also do not want to lose all the good lessons we have learned in as far as our Youth Development Academy is concerned. Kaizer Chiefs has seen good players come through our youth structures and we would like for that to continue.”
