Chiefs later appointed Head of Youth Cavin Johnson as interim coach. After two games in charge against Golden Arrows (2-1 loss) and a 3-2 win over Cape Town Spurs, Johnson revealed that his heart is in retaining the academy job to develop young players.
Meanwhile, reports claimed that Amakhosi have found a list of four head coach targets:
- Raul Caneda
- Pitso Mosimane
- Muhsin Ertugral
- Nasreddine Nabi.
PITSO MOSIMANE THE FAN-FAVOURITE
With a South African ID and as the only PSL coach with a record of five league titles, Mosimane is logically the fan’s favourite.
But it does not look easy.
1. Pitso salary
Chiefs are understood to be experiencing financial curbs. After earning massive US dollar salaries at Al Ahly, Al Nasry and Al-Wahda, Pitso may be a bit too expensive to afford.
2. Pitso’s technical team salaries
After rejecting the Tunisian Nasreddine Nabi before the start of the season for wanting to arrive with his own technical assistants, Pitso also has his five-man entourage of technical support and paying them won’t come cheap.
3. Transfer demands
As with many top coach around the globe, Mosimane loves to make transfer decisions and sign high-quality players. Will Chiefs be able to meet his transfer demands?
Amakhosi, as with many leading teams around the world, prefer to have coaches with a diplomatic media style and personality, especially when the pressure is high with things not going so well. Pitso speaks like a man with his heart on his sleeve in front of the media cameras and microphones.
