Queiroz on Chiefs' wish list

2012-04-14 10:22

Johannesburg - Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz is on the wish list of Kaizer Chiefs after they fired Serb Vladimir Vermezovic earlier this week.

The former Real Madrid manager and twice assistant to Alex Ferguson at Manchester United has steered Iran to the final Asian qualifying phase for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Speaking after the three-year reign of Vermezovic came to end with only two League Cup titles to show for his efforts, team manager Bobby Motaung said the most popular South African football club were interested in Queiroz.

He is a former coach of South Africa, leading the country through a successful qualifying campaign for the 2002 World Cup only to be axed before the finals in South Korea and Japan after a poor Africa Cup of Nations showing.

Chiefs have put former midfield stars Theophilus 'Doctor' Khumalo, Arthur Zwane and Donald 'Ace' Khuse in charge until the end of the season next month with the club chasing a league-and-cup double.

They host Free State Stars on Saturday in the Nedban Cup quarter-finals and are six points behind co-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates in the title race with a game in hand.

    As long as Chiefs is run as a family company where people like Bobby are not appointed on merit, nothing will change in the long run. Chiefs will not win the Africa's Champs league which is the ultimate measure. . . watch the space!

    bobby iz looking at the right direction

  • Vuyo - 2012-04-14 11:07

    I thought Bafana had fired Queiroz as our coach because they believed that he was a poor coach , how come then has he done so much for Iran . Maybe SAFA is run by incompetent people , who can't separate a good coach from a poor one .

  • Paul Maema - 2012-04-14 11:22

    maybe gud choice.

  • Keith - 2012-04-14 11:35

    With all the money Bobby is having to its disposal they are notbying real quality players.Carlos can come but he'll be chase away. Give your coaches quality players and be prepared to spend more. We'll always struggle against Pirates and Downs if we don't address this matter.

  • Thabo - 2012-04-17 11:22

    disgusting players, I see no excuse Ace Khuse was part of the technical team with VV but now he claims he had only two days to prepair the team for Nedbank cup, all this time in the technical team what was he doing. what is the duty of a assistance coach? (Sic) isn't Ace part of the team that failed with VV?
