Cape Town - Word is that Kaizer Chiefs are expected to announce a new coach next week, and a Sport24 source says that the team is expected to announce a new captain too.

With Tefu Mashamaite and Itumeleng Khune having left the club, the Amakhosi are set to have a different permanent leader for the first time in a few seasons.

A Sport24 source said that it looks like Chiefs will choose between Siphiwe Tshabalala and Willard Katsande to be the new captain.

He said that the management is expected to announce the new captain on Wednesday, when they announce the new coach.

"Yes they will also be announcing the new captain next week," said he source.

“They want to start the pre-season with the captain already there. 

“The names which have been mentioned are those of Shabba and Katsande. 

“It won't be an easy decision but they have to have a new captain, and that's why they have names already.”
