• Chiefs confirm Solinas as new head coach

    Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the appointment of former Free State Stars coach Giovanni Solinas as the club’s new head coach.

    The Soweto giants have finally ended speculation surrounding their new coach following the departure of Steve Komphela back in April after announcing Solinas as their new head coach.

    Solinas was chosen from a number of experienced candidates which include the likes of Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter, coach Luc Eymael and Township Rollers mentor Nikola Kavazovic.

    Amakhosi chairman Kaizer Motaung confirmed the news via Facebook: ‘This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for.

    ‘It gives me great pleasure in this moment in time to welcome our new coach Giovanni Solinas.

    ‘Welcome coach to the Kaizer Chiefs family.’

    Kaizer Chiefs will kick-start their pre-season against ABC Motsepe League outfit Buya Msuthu in the annual Bokone Bophirima Maize Cup on Saturday.
