Zwane On His Chiefs Coaching Ambitions

Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Arthur Zwane has opened up on his own ambitions to coach the Glamour Boys in future.

The 47-year-old alongside Dillon Sheppard will take over from Gavin Hunt after he was fired on Friday.

Zwane worked as Hunt’s assistant and was the club’s head coach of the reserve team before and has an interview published in this week’s iDiski Times after speaking to senior writer Velile Mnyandu and other journalists.

In quotes before Hunt was sacked, Zwane looked ahead at his own coaching future at Naturena.

“Yeah, look. It can only be one way. Do I want it (become first team coach in future)? Yes,” he said.

“If I want it, I’ll always get it but it won’t come easy. I’m gonna have to be ready and work hard and make sure that I can be one of the best. 

“It shouldn’t be a case of just going there and making numbers. And as you know, the team has also invested a lot in me, and not only me. There’s other up and coming coaches that the team has invested in them. 

“And I’ve been overseas attending, you know, I’ve attended coaching courses, and I’m still gonna go there, because I wanna grow and understand the game better and mix with the right people. 

“I want to learn from other people and I’m still learning because I’m a student of the game.”
