Ntseki defended Chiefs decision to appoint him as coach

CAPE TOWN – Kaizer Chiefs head coach Molefi Ntseki has taken a swipe at those who believe he is not a perfect fit for Amakhosi.

Ntseki was answering the media questions after his side’s 2-1 victory over Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter final at Athlone Stadium on Sunday.

The former Bafana Bafana coach became the club’s Head of Technical and Youth Development Academy two years ago before he was appointed to take over the head coach role this season.

Goals from Ashley Du Preez and Edson Castillo saw Amakhosi advance to the MTN8 semifinal.

“As for the public and anybody who had questions about me, I said it and I am saying it now, is normal,” said Ntseki.

“In South Africa, you are declared useless before you were even born and I think it’s a process that all of us need to understand.

“When you are carried for nine months, there’s a respect and belief that whoever is going to be born on this earth will have a big contribution to make.”

Chiefs made a shocking development in Ntseki’s appointment.

He said the club wanted to continue with the work the technical team has been doing.

“The appointment was made mainly because they need to have a continuation in terms of the tactical plan of the team and also the projections,” he said.

“By the way, I was the head of Technical, and reports were presented – we saw that there are certain areas that we need to work on.

“There was a lot of noise about the other coach coming to the team and the club never said anything about anyone coming. It was the plan from the club to have somebody from within so that we can continue with a technical team”

Kaizer Chiefs will face Mamelodi Sundowns in the semi final following a draw that took place on Sunday night.
