Kaizer Chiefs is not for babies – Bobby Motaung


Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung says Patrick Mabedi is too young to become Kaizer Chiefs head coach on a permanent basis.

Mabedi is the current interim coach for the club as the hunt for Steve Komphela’s replacement is still ongoing but the Chiefs boss has made it clear that the club is not for babies.

Mabedi is too young to become Kaizer Chiefs-Motaung

Speaking to Kickoff Magazine, Motaung said coaching the Amakhosi is like running a government and it’s not a child’s play.

“Mabedi definitely will never be the head coach of Kaizer Chiefs. He is a caretaker coach because he has been an assistant and that’s why we got him. He’s got quality, he is delivering as an assistant. But being a head coach is something else,” he was quoted.

The Chiefs boss then reassured all Chiefs fans that the management will continue supporting their former defender until the new coach is recruited.

“He is so far under good structures. He has shown it under pressure in the last three games [of last season], not because he is the hero but because of the structures of the organisation.

“We will support him all the way but coaching Chiefs is running a government. We must make sure we are sober and make the right decision,” he explained.

Mabedi once showed ambitions of managing the club after taking over from Komphela who resigned in the aftermath of the team’s 2-0 defeat to Free State Stars in the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup last season.



  1. Typical of a man that runs a big soccer team but never kicked even a tennis ball. There is no much difference between MABEDI and khomphela except that khomphela has proven that he is a looser with tons of clubs he has coached. As far as I’m concerned speaking the soccer language chiefs was coached by a bby for the past 3 season cause Steve has achieved dololo as coach.so Bobby shut up if don’t something with brains to say. Even now u r failing to appoint a coach that will lead that government.

  2. Bobby learn to respect people who work for you and one might find Bobby’s reaction to be recist maybe because Mabedi is Malawian.
    Shame on you Bobby………….

  3. How can Bob’steak say that. It is discouraging coach Mabedi. Learn how to voice your thoughts Bobby. Your are killing our team spirit please be careful.

  4. Bobby Mutaung is an idiot. He can’t say Kaizer Chiefs is not for babies, that’s disrespect to Mabedi.
    He does not know football language.
    Bobby should go back to school and learn how to address the media.
