Kaizer Chiefs have parted ways with Molefi Ntseki following a string of poor results. 

Kaizer Chiefs confirmed in a statement that the two parties had agreed to “amicably part” during a meeting on Monday.

“Following a meeting on Monday morning, Molefi Ntseki’s tenure as Head Coach of Kaizer Chiefs has ended amicably by mutual consent,” the club said in a statement. “Given the recent run of disappointing results, the parties agreed that this was the best course of action under the prevailing circumstances.”


The club said former Al Ahly assistant coach Cavin Johnson would take over on an interim basis.

Johnson recently joined Chiefs as Head of the Youth Development Academy and will take over as the First Team coach interim.

The current assistant coach, Dillon Sheppard, will retain his position under Johnson.

The assistant coach, Arthur Zwane, will return to his former role within the Club’s development structures.

Molefi Ntseki arrived at Chiefs in June 2021 as Head of Technical and Youth Development. He took over as the senior team Head Coach in June 2023 after talks with Nassredine Nabi collapsed.
