Kaizer Chiefs have announced their new assistant coach after the departure of Patrick Mabedi.

Shaun Bartlett has been appointed as the German mentor’s assistant coach.

“Shaun Bartlett new assistant coach!! Shaun Bartlett has been appointed as Ernst Middendorp’s assistant coach with immediate effect on a two and a half year contract. We welcome him back to the Kaizer Chiefs Family,” Chiefs confirmed on the club’s official instagram account account.

Prior to his announcement, Chiefs had said that Arthur Zwane will assist Ernst in their upcoming game against SuperSport United.
