This was confirmed to Phakaaathi by a source after last week’s meeting with management. 

The source claimed that the club bosses were unimpressed with how the team performed especially towards the end of the season where they lost four games in a row. 

Chiefs finished fifth in the DStv Premiership and were knocked out in the semifinals in both the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup. 

It was Zwane’s first season as head coach at Amakhosi and while realistically it was not a bad one, supporters were unimpressed. 

Zwane faced the wrath of the supporters towards the end of the season as they raised their dissatisfaction and wanted him ousted.

“The meeting sat on Tuesday and after extensive talks, he emerged as the coach and still enjoys the full support of the management. He is safe,” said the source. 

The source says he was however told that he needs to hit the ground running next season to appease the disgruntled supporters. 

“He understands the job very well. He knows he needs to end the trophy drought and get the team playing attractive football. 

“And he is hopeful that when he has his new signings and gets a few strikers, he will be alright.”
