Underfire Arthur Zwane unfazed by calls to leave Kaizer Chiefs coaching job  – Entertainment SA


In the midst of calls from a section of fans for him to step down, Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane remains unfazed with that saying it happens to any football manager. 
 
The Amakhosi boss has come under fire for his managerial style as the Soweto giants struggle to consistently collect maximum points. 
 
Chiefs have managed to secure two wins out of seven DStv Premiership matches in the 2022/23 season but the fans are already pressing panic buttons as they sit 14th on the log standings so far. 
 
Speaking to the media on Thursday ahead of their clash against a hoodoo side, SuperSport United on Saturday night, ‘10111’ says he will forge ahead and focus on his job. 
 
“It is part of the game, these things do happen to the best coaches in the world,” Zwane said. 
 
“And if you remember when I was appointed, I said the same thing — that there would be tough times when the results are not coming and obviously people wouldn’t be happy. But that doesn’t mean that we should give up. 
 
“We will keep on doing the right thing and we know that we are on the right track. 
 
“Yes, it’s quite difficult because the results are fluctuating, but the good thing about it is that we know what we want to achieve. We know where we want to see ourselves and it’s a work in progress.” 
 
The former winger and fan favourite says if supporters could look beyond the results they would see that Chiefs have not performed badly, and what they need most to secure better results is to sharpen up in front of goal. 
 
“It helps us because we know where we have been lacking. We can work on that finishing [problem],” Zwane added pointing out the ability to create chances. 
 
“The combinations are at least there. Look at the combinations of [Kgaogelo] Sekgota, Keagan Dolly, and George [Matlou]. There’s that awareness and tactical understanding.” 
 
Chiefs head to the clash versus Amatsatsantsa A Pitori at FNB Stadium under pressure as they are yet to win since losing to Cape Town City in the league last month. 
 
For the Tshwane-based club coached by former Chiefs boss, Gavin Hunt, they are slowly finding their feet as they have registered two wins on the trot and sit at number six with 11 points on the log table.
