Ex Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach and Stars of Africa Academy director, Farouk Khan has shared his opinion on the kind of manager Kaizer Chiefs need to utilize with a specific end goal to take the club forward in the new season.
Chiefs are still on the hunt to find the best man to mentor the team in the new season after Steve Komphela stepped down from the helm last month.
The Siya crew spoke to Khan, whether a local or a foreign coach will be best suitable to take over the reins at the Soweto giants.
“Well the first thing they must consider is the fact that the club has gone through a traumatic period, having not won any silverware for that period, the demands become quite extreme as for who you employ. So the guy you bring in obviously is going to be under tremendous pressure to get results in the short term,” he said.
“When you are involved with a club like Kaizer Chiefs, there is never a period where you can say that you are building or you developing, those words don’t exist in clubs like that, there you have to hit the ground running.
“Therefore the coach you get firstly must have an understanding of South African players because our players are completely different to players that you find in Africa, let alone the world as a whole. So, the mentality is different, the way you motivate them is different. So, I would say, a South African coach,” he added.
