• Bartlett becomes latest casualty at Chiefs

    Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Shaun Bartlett

    Kaizer Chiefs have announced the early termination of the contract of assistant coach Shaun Bartlett.

    Following the sacking of Ernst Middendorp, Chiefs have announced that they have decided to part ways with the German coach’s assistant, Bartlett.

    The former Bafana Bafana star joined the backroom staff upon Middendorp’s arrival at Naturena, but after shockingly missing out on the league title, Chiefs are looking to clean house.

    The club made the announcement on Thursday morning via a statement on their website.

    The statement in full:

    ‘Kaizer Chiefs Chairman Kaizer Motaung, the Board of Directors and the club’s management would like to further announce that they have agreed to an early termination of assistant coach Shaun Bartlett’s contract.

    ‘The decision to release Bartlett follows that of Amakhosi and head coach Ernst Middendorp going their separate ways yesterday.

    ‘We would like to once again thank both gentlemen for their service to Kaizer Chiefs over the last 21 months,’ comments chairman Kaizer Motaung.

    ‘We wish Shaun Bartlett all the best in his future endeavours.’
