Junior Khanye spells out Amakhosi master plan

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Junior Khanye is against the potential appointment of Gavin Hunt as Ernst Middendorp’s successor.


Kaizer Chiefs announced the German tactician’s departure on Wednesday and set to announce his replacement ahead of the new season which gets underway in October.


“If Chiefs appoint Hunt, they will be missing the point because there is nothing he will do for the club,” Khanye was quoted by Isolezwe.


“He will sign a lot of players as he did at Wits but end up not winning trophies. Out of all those players, we don’t know if they will be able to stand the weight of the Chiefs jersey because not any player can be able to wear it.


“I think players are born to wear that jersey. The skill and hard work are not enough at Chiefs. You need to be brave, be able to stand against the challenges, and the hunger to win trophies.

“Chiefs must open their pockets and get Eric Tinkler. He must be assisted by Dan Malesela. The two coaches can be able to restore Chiefs’ style. They can also bring back confidence to the players. Tinkler has proven his worth. He has shown that he knows what he is doing – Chiefs need that calibre.


“Firstly, Chiefs must be humble and bring back Farouk Khan to head the development sides. He will be the one that can hire coaches that will work with different age groups such as Zipho Dlangalala, Sam Mbatha, Mandla Mazibuko, and Simon Ngomane. All these coaches learned a lot from Ted Dumitru on how to play and retain the ball.”
