Offical: Chiefs Announce Coach Exit

Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that German Goalkeeper Coach Rainer Dinkelacker has left the club by mutual agreement.

Dinkelacker, 75, returned to Naturena for a third stint as a Strategic Adviser in the goalkeeping department of the Club.

The highly experienced and successful Dinkelacker had previously successfully worked at the club between 1999 and 2013, as well as in 2015/16.

However, his departure was announced as part of the latest changes at the club on Saturday.

“Coach Rainer Dinkelacker, who was recalled at the start of the season to assist in the goalkeeping department, has left as per agreement,” the club stated.

“We thank him and his family for allowing him to leave Germany and rejoin the team to share his knowledge with the coaches and our goalkeepers.”

It remains to be seen what happens to fellow goalkeeper coach, Aubrey Tlali Mathibe, as new goalkeeper coach Ilyes Mzoughi already arrived at the club and will form part of Nasreddine Nabi’s technical team.

However, the club are yet to confirm their new head coach and his full backroom staff.
