‘He would bring Kaizer Chiefs a trophy’ 

Kaizer Chiefs are running out of time. Is the next head coach going to be Sead Ramovic from TS Galaxy or not? Here are the thoughts of Tim Sukazi, Ramovic’s current employer.

KAIZER CHIEFS LINKED WITH SEAD RAMOVIC

According to transfermarkt South Africa’s report, Amakhosi are set to hold talks with TS Galaxy’s coach Sead Ramovic.

“Transfermarkt has learnt that Sead Ramovic has been identified as the next possible head coach of the AmaKhosi. The club is set to hold talks with him in the next few days, potentially paving the way for a new era at Kaizer Chiefs FC,” the report said.

“As [Kaizer] Chiefs continue its search for a head coach to restore their former glory, Ramović’s impressive credentials make him a strong candidate.

“With an average of 1.48 points per match in the #DStvPrem this season, the Stuttgart-born tactician has demonstrated his ability to deliver results,” the report added.

TIM SUKAZI SHARES HIS THOUGHTS

In the meantime, TS Galaxy’s chairman Sukazi has been asked to share his views on the chance of losing Ramovic to Kaizer Chiefs.

“When he got here [to TS Galaxy], I was told that I’ve got a plumber, we had two points after eight games and we’ll be relegated, why did I bring a plumber – a man with no experience,” Sukazi said via Metro FM, as quoted by SABC Sport.

“I want a strong Kaizer Chiefs. I know what Ramovic can do, but I cannot sell him or tell Chiefs what they should do. If that will extend the blessings to SA football – one of which is that have a new rivalry after Chiefs and Pirates [between Galaxy and Downs], it provokes conversations in every corner.

“So if that approach comes, in my view, it could be the turnaround for the biggest institution. I know he will bring them success, he will bring them a trophy, but I love him – he’s my coach,” Sukazi added.

“I said to the journalist on the day, ‘Please listen to me, and listen to me very carefully, the arrival of Sead Ramovic will prove to be a blessing to South African football – you’ll thank you later.’ I said it, I’m on record. Members of the media were there and can pull that file.

“The rumour of Kaizer Chiefs, which is a rumour I also read [about], we haven’t spoken to them – I don’t know if it will happen, what their criteria is they’re looking for, so I cannot advise Kaizer Chiefs, obviously.

“But should such an approach come to my desk, my wish, and what I want for football in South Africa, is for a very strong Kaizer Chiefs because Sundowns has become [so] strong.

“And so had Pirates, though we beat them last weekend, this team of Pirates is probably the best team I’ve seen in recent times, maybe in 10 years even.

“I want a strong Kaizer Chiefs. I know what Ramovic can do, but I cannot sell him or tell Chiefs what they should do. If that will extend the blessings to SA football – one of which is that have a new rivalry after Chiefs and Pirates [between Galaxy and Downs], it provokes conversations in every corner.

“So if that approach comes, in my view, it could be the turnaround for the biggest institution. I know he will bring them success, he will bring them a trophy, but I love him – he’s my coach,” Sukazi concluded on the Amakhosi and Ramovic reports.
