Kaizer Motaung Jr. will begin his duties as the club’s new technical and sporting director with immediate effect. Motaung Jr. has been part of the club’s structures ever since his retirement in 2014.
They are in the CAF Champions League final where they will play Al Ahly on the 17th of July 2021 in Casablanca. The 1st of July 2021 also means that their 1 yearlong FIFA imposed transfer ban has come to an end.
They can officially sign players now.
“I am thankful to the Chairman, Ntate Motaung, for the honour and opportunity to serve the Club at this level.” Motaung Jr. told the club’s media.
“This appointment is a clear indication of his belief in my abilities, which I don’t take for granted. I am a student of the game and have remained one even after I hung up my boots in January 2014.
“I will work within the structure and ensure I play my part in ensuring that we take Kaizer Chiefs to new heights and reclaim our rightful position in African football.
“I am looking forward to continuing to work with my colleagues.
“We need to maintain Kaizer Chiefs as a household name in world football and we’ve shown that it can be done after reaching the CAF Champions League final for the first time.
“Our task will be ensuring that there are proper and solid structures in place from U13, U15, U17, U19, Reserves, up to the Senior Team,” concluded Kaizer Motaung Jr.
