Ntseki vows to bring back glory days at Amakhosi

Following the unsettling news that Molefi Ntseki will be taking over the reins at Kaizer Chiefs with immediate effect, the new captain of the ship has vowed to bring back the glory at Naturena.

On Wednesday evening, Chiefs dropped a bombshell that Ntseki would be leading the team in the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season as the new head coach, with embattled Arthur Zwane demoted to being a joint assistant coach with Dillon Sheppard.

Despite the news being not well-received by most of the Amakhosi fanbase, the former Bafana Bafana coach is confident that he will change the fortunes of the club.

“I full accept this huge responsibility that the chairman, our board of directors, and the club have bestowed upon me with humility and respect,” Ntseki said in a statement.

“I thank them for the confidence and belief in me to become the captain of the ship. I look forward to working with everyone involved in the technical team to bring joy to our millions of Amakhosi supporters around the world.”

Ntseki knows his way around the club, having already spent two years as the head of technical and youth development, after he signed a three-year deal in May 2021.

The 58-year-old will be expected to hit the ground running and prove his doubters wrong by ending the club’s eight-year trophy drought.

Amakhosi returned to Naturena this week, as they prepare for their crucial pre-season training camp.

More movement is expected to happen at the club after it parted ways with Phathutshedzo Nange recently, who signed a two-year deal with SuperSport United on Wednesday.

Amakhosi are expected to unveil their new Kappa kit and announce new signings in the next coming days ahead of the new season.
