Chiefs find themselves languishing in eighth place in the DStv Premiership thus far, with the squad underperforming. The team has not fared much better in the cup competitions either. Under Molefi Ntseki, they were knocked out of both the MTN8 and Carling Knockout Cup. That prompted the Amakhosi management to relieve the former Bafana Bafana coach of his duties.

Zwane struggled for game time

Chiefs then redeployed Cavin Johnson as their interim coach from his role overseeing the club’s academy. The club found themselves knocked out of the Nedbank Cup during his tenure. Under both coaches, one player that has hardly got a look in under both coaches is midfielder Samkelo Zwane.

For Zwane, the numbers this season hardly support the possibility of him growing into a first team regular any time soon. In his breakthrough season last campaign, he made 12 league appearances, from the second half of the season. It was thought that his second campaign would see him become an even more integral part of the Chiefs season. However, under both ex-coach Ntseki it was clear to see he was not going to be a regular. 

It was previously reported by this publication that Chiefs were ready to sacrifice Zwane and send him on loan. But now, according to Soccer-Laduma, he has decided to stay and fight for his place. This in the hope the new coach will give him a chance. 

Willing to fight for his Chiefs career?

“Soccer Laduma understands that the player is determined to fight for his place in the team next season, but a lot will depend on the new coach Amakhosi are expected to appoint in the coming weeks. It’s understood that Zwane’s camp would want to know what the plan of the new coach is, to see whether or not the player needs to make a loan move to get more game time elsewhere.” Wrote the publication.

So Zwane’s future at Chiefs depends on the new coach.
