Mazinyo spotted at Kaizer Chiefs game, could he be returning to Naturena?

Former Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst “Mazinyo” Middendorp is back in the country and was spotted at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night during Amakhosi’s match against AmaZulu.

The 64-year-old is a free agent after recently resigning as the Sporting Director and coach of SV Meppen in Germany. Mazinyo has some unfinished business in the DStv and although he’s currently unemployed, the German coach could slot in at any club thanks to his 20-year experience and knowledge of the local game.

Are Kaizer Chiefs bringing back Mazinyo?

In the 2019/20 season, Middendorp and Kaizer Chiefs lost out on the league title on the last day having led the DStv Premiership for more than 12 months. Despite leading the title race by 12 points at one point, Amakhosi buckled under pressure and allowed Mamelodi Sundowns to snitch the title.

A few days after losing the title, Mazinyo was released by Kaizer Chiefs.

“I was released being in the position to qualify for the CAF Champions League; it was just a disaster at the time simply easy. The final talk from the management was presented to the team in my presence. Everybody went on holiday and I went to the office of Bobby Motaung, telling me ‘coach that’s it, thank you for your work and now you can go home, we will sort it out on the contract side’; it was simply an easy procedure,” Middendorp told Robert Marawa on the SowetanLIVE.

Kaizer Chiefs have had a poor start to the season with fans pleading with the club to remove Molefi Ntseki as coach. Ntseki has a big task on Saturday as his troops play Mamelodi Sundowns in the semi-finals of the MTN8. The Glamour Boys are desperate to end their eight-year trophy drought.
