However, the club confirmed that Zwane has the full backing of the chairman, who also sent a message to 10111 ahead of his new reign in the dugout.
“We would like to take this opportunity and congratulate coach Arthur Zwane for this big appointment,” Motaung said.
“The plan we have been working on for many years of appointing Arthur as our Head Coach has come to fruition.
“After seeing his passion for the game and his willingness to learn, we have been looking to bring him through to lead the senior when the time is right and we believe that time is now.
“We are also grateful that he has been patient and continued to work hard to advance his coaching skills and abilities by educating himself, which is key in the modern game.
“Arthur is the someone who grew up at Chiefs and has a full understanding of our culture.
“We did say last year when we appointed the Sporting Director and Head of Technical that we wanted them to work with people who understand our philosophy.
“This is important as the coach works closely with those two gentlemen on a daily basis.”
