Kaizer Chiefs Technical Team member: Molefi Ntseki
By Staff Writer: Although Arthur Zwane’s head seems to be the one on the chopping block, it has since emerged that he isn’t the only facing the chop at Kaizer Chiefs.
Chiefs endured a tumultuous season under the tutelage of Zwane, amassing their record amount of losses in a Premier Soccer League season, which is 12.
Now as there looks to be a meeting and a few deliberations on what the way forward will be for Chiefs and Zwane, it is also understood that yet another member of the technical team could be faced with the possibility of losing his job. That member is thought to be none other than Molefi Ntseki!
Ntseki joined Chiefs two seasons ago, with the announcement of his appointment coinciding with that of former coach Stuart Baxter. While Baxter’s second stint at the club proved to be rather short-lived, Ntseki has had the privilege of being afforded more time to carry out his duties behind the scenes, overseeing all football matters from youth set up to first team at Naturena.
It is perhaps important to note, however, that the appointment of Ntseki came before that of current sporting director Kaizer Motaung Jnr, a man who has often hinted that, had he been given his current role earlier, the likes of Baxter would’ve not returned to Chiefs, as his vision for the club will always be for the long-term.
Now with Chiefs having a bad season, it is believed that a lot of questions are being asked about not just Zwane, but the whole management structure around him. According to Soccer-Laduma, Ntseki is far from safe as well.
CHIEFS TO ASSESS NTSEKI’S POSITION
“Kaizer Chiefs are set to review the role of head of youth and technical Molefi Ntseki. It’s believed that the Glamour Boys will assess whether Nsteki remains suitable for the job.
The feeling internally is that the veteran mentor should not be pressing the panic buttons due to the work he has put in behind the scenes with the development set up. But with Chiefs’ trophy drought extending to eight years, it is only natural that questions be asked” wrote the publication.
