KAIZER Chiefs’ interim coach, Arthur Zwane, has just two matches to salvage their disappointing season and enhance his chances of getting the job permanently.
Zwane has made it no secret that he’d like to be trusted with the huge responsibility of becoming Chiefs new permanent coach, but the club are yet to decide on Stuart Baxter’s successor.
And time is not on Zwane’s side in his bid to impress, with just two matches remaining for him to ensure Amakhosi finish the season in a strong position and qualify for the Caf Champions League.
This is most likely the only thing that could appease the demanding Chiefs supporters who will endure another season without silverware.
Chiefs will visit Sekhukhune United at the Ellis Park Stadium tomorrow (3pm) for a crunch DStv Premiership encounter that will either maintain or kill off their slim hopes of a second place finish.
“We are showing glimpses of what we can do. Things are looking (better) for us at the moment. So we want to take it one game at a time,” said Zwane.
“If it happens that we get the Champions League spot, we will go for it but if it doesn’t happen, we will have to just prepare for next season with the hope that things get better.”
Zwane is hoping that regardless of how the season ends, he has done enough to convince management that he’s the right man to take the club forward. Although he’s unsure of what will happen at the end of the season, he seems to have already started planning for next season, with belief that he will be at the helm.
“I’m one of the luckiest people. I’m a special breed of something because it’s not often that you would have so many people supporting and wishing you to succeed,” added Zwane.
“So I’m thankful and grateful to God. The club has invested a lot in me. They have ensured that I’m the coach that I am today. It will always be difficult for me to disappoint people who have been behind me through thick and thin. So, whether someone is going to come in or not, still Kaizer Chiefs will come first.”
