Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have announced that recently retired John Paintsil will replace Doctor Khumalo as Steve Komphela's assistant coach.
The former Ghanaian international announced his retirement last week - six months after Maritzburg United released the 35-year-old.
Paintsil donned the colours of West Ham United, Fulham as well as Leicester City during his illustrious football career.
In 2013, Paintsil joined Santos in the Absa Premiership for a season and made 17 appearances before switching his allegiance to The Team of Choice.
Also joining Komphela's technical team is physical trainer Marco Munhoz and goalkeeper coach Alexandre Revoredo.
Meanwhile, Khumalo is set to be redeployed in another position at the club.
