We're going to lift titles - Zwane and Sheppard

Kaizer Chiefs assistant coaches Dillon Sheppard and Arthur Zwane are confident they'll be apart of the a new successful era at the club under the guidance of Gavin Hunt.

 

Sheppard was recently appointed assistant coach to Hunt, while Arthur Zwane was also promoted from the MDC side to the first team to act in the same role as his former counterpart who took charge of the Bidvest Wits MDC side.

 

“There is no doubt that the coach is a winner,” Zwane told the Kaizer Chiefs media team. 

 

“That is one of the reasons the team decided to bring him here. Our culture as well as one of winning. So a lot is expected from each and every coach who comes here, a lot is expected from the players with the culture of winning as well.

 

“That’s why the club brought in coach Gavin who has a winning mentality, who is very strong in terms of demanding results. And you [Sheppard] as well, as a player you were a winner, I know you.”

 

“The Kaizer Chiefs Village is unbelievable. I have been blessed to have played in Europe,” Sheppard added.

 

“I have been at some big clubs and I must say that I was totally shocked when I came in here. Going into the offices, going into the analysts rooms, going down to the pitch, getting the feeling of the whole village.

 

“It is an environment where you see that it breathes football. I don’t even live so far away, I always drove past. This is like a dream for myself being a coach coming inside here and being part of this huge set-up. I was hugely blown away.

 

“Having worked with Gavin as a player and then going into his backroom staff, one very strong thing about Gavin is that he is a winner. The way he works with players, the way he psychologically works with them. Also his tactical acumen, he gets it right more often than not,”
