Molefi Ntseki’s stint as Kaizer Chiefs head coach has come to an end. The Soweto giants announced in a statement this afternoon that they were severing ties with Ntseki effective immediately.
This follows Amakhosi’s 1-0 loss to Amazulu in the Carling Black Label Knockout Cup on Saturday. After their defeat, the angry Chiefs fans hurled objects at Ntseki and players. In a statement, Chiefs said after a meeting today with the ex-head coach, the team has peacefully and by mutual agreement terminated Ntseki’s tenure. Ntseki is let go based on the recent string of poor results. “Both parties agreed that this was the best decision under the current situation.
Cavin Johnson, who recently joined Chiefs as Head of the Youth Development Academy, will step in as the first team coach on a temporary basis. Current assistant coach, Dillon Sheppard will keep his position under Johnson,” the club said in a statement. Ntseki’s troubles started in August when unhappy fans threw bottles at him and called for his dismissal after the team’s stunning loss to TS Galaxyat the Mbombela stadium.”
