The shortlived Molefi Ntseki era at Kaizer Chiefs has come to an end.

Ntseki was on Monday sacked by the club following their exit from the Carling Knockout against AmaZulu on the weekend.

In a brief statement on their official X page, Chiefs said: “Following a meeting on Monday morning, Molefi Ntseki’s tenure as Head Coach of Kaizer Chiefs has ended amicably by mutual consent.

“We wish him all the best,” the club said.

Sporting Director, Kaizer Motaung Jr added: “I would like to thank Coach Ntseki for his contribution to the Club since he arrived here, both at development level and with the senior team. We wish him success in his future endeavours.”

Ntseki, whose previous job was as the head coach of Bafana Bafana, served as the head of youth development at the club before replacing Arthur Zwane ahead of the beginning of the season.

Cavin Johnson, who recently joined the club as the head of youth development, will replace Ntseki on an interim basis. Zwane will return to the youth structures, while Dillon Sheppard will stay on as assistant coach, the club said.
