Chiefs set to confirm Hunt technical team

Kaizer Chiefs are closing on their new head coach Gavin Hunt’s preferred assistant as they look to finalise their technical team.

Amakhosi are restructuring their coaching structure after their sacking Ernst Middendorp and Shaun Bartlett last week following their dramatic title loss to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Soweto giants announced the four-time league winner Gavin Hunt as their new head coach on Thursday and he could be reunited with one of the countries brightest coaching prospects.

KickOff.com has confirmed that the Glamour boys held talks with former Bidvest Wits reserves coach Dillon Sheppard on Friday.

The former Lokomotiv Moscow winger was seen at the Naturena Village yesterday where he reportedly opened talks over his next move.

Sheppard and Hunt worked together for six years with three of those years as a player.

But Chiefs legend and current MDC coach Arthur Zwane is also earmarked to be part of the new-look technical team as he looks to be rewarded for the development of first-team talents Njabulo Blom, Siyabonga Ngezana, Happy Mashiane to name but a few.

Chiefs are expected to announce the full technical team before the club returns to pre-season next week.
