The Bafana Bafana icon desires to see the duo that previously secured the Premier Soccer League title for Mamelodi Sundowns take charge at Chiefs.

Miguel Gamondi and Neil Tovey jointly guided Mamelodi Sundowns to the 2005/06 Premier Soccer League championship.

It’s a partnership the Bafana legend trusts to bring success to Chiefs, who haven’t secured a trophy since 2015.

Currently positioned eighth in the PSL, the Soweto giants have been eliminated from all cup competitions and have endured a four-game winless streak under interim coach Cavin Johnson.

Tovey is confident that teaming up with Gamondi can revitalize the Naturena-based club.

“Gamondi is a good person, a good man, he knows his game,” Tovey told KickOff.

“He can adapt. As a coach, you [have] got to adapt to your team, otherwise it’s gonna take another two, three seasons to get things right.

“For him to get the style right, he’s gonna have to acquire players that can play to his style,” the former Bafana captain said.

“I don’t think he’s got only one style because you [have] got to be adaptable as a coach.

“You can’t just come with one style because if someone messes with your style, then you can’t go anywhere,” he continued.

“A coach [has] got to be adaptable and plan for different situations in different games. Playing away from home is not the same as playing at home.

“Well, Sundowns are a big team and he won them the league, so definitely, he can handle the pressure,” continued the ex-Chiefs skipper.

“He will need an assistant coach who understands the club and the environment though.

“Personally I’ve got no problem [being his assistant]. I’d love to help Chiefs, I’ve always said that.”

Assessing Potential Candidates for the Kaizer Chiefs Coaching Role

Several notable names have emerged as contenders for the coaching position at Kaizer Chiefs, commonly known as Amakhosi. Among them are Alexandre Gallo, Pitso Mosimane, Jose Peseiro, Benni McCarthy, Manqoba Mngqithi, and former Brazil coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo.


If Miguel Gamondi finds himself on the shortlist to replace Molefi Ntseki, his prior experience in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) would be a significant factor for consideration, despite the considerable time that has passed since his departure from South Africa.


Neil Tovey, another potential candidate, boasts a strong resume both as a former captain of Amakhosi and as the former technical director of the South African Football Association (SAFA). His intimate knowledge of the club and his experience at the helm of football development in the country make him a compelling candidate for the role.
