Kaizer Chiefs

























Kaizer Chiefs are set to make their debut appearance in the Maize Cup in 2017 and Amakhosi will be looking to clinch it as they prepare for the 2017/18 campaign.

The Soweto giants endured a disappointing 2016/17 season - finishing fourth in the Absa Premiership and they also ended the campaign without a trophy.

Steve Komphela as been retained as the Chiefs head coach and he is expected to revamp the Amakhosi team prior to the upcoming season.

Amakhosi have already made changes in the technical team as assistant coach John Paintsil parted ways with the club and he was replaced by club legend Patrick Mabedi.

Seven players have been earmarked to exit the Naturena-based outfit after being deemed surplus to future requirements.

With new players expected arrive at the club, Amakhosi fans could be treated to a number of new faces during Maize Cup.
