Chiefs were left disappointed by the barren tenure, while Steve Komphela was coaching the Soweto giants.

Komphela’s trophyless run saw him leave the club prematurely, after losing to Free State Stars in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup.

“Following a comprehensive review of this season’s campaign that saw us finish in third position‚ the club will focus on rebuilding before the start of the new season and will announce a new head coach and other positive changes in due course‚” said Motaung in a statement on the club’s website.

“We want to put this season behind us and concentrate on ensuring that we are in a position to challenge for major honours next season‚” the Chiefs boss said.

“Despite the disappointment‚ I would still like to commend the players and coaching staff for their commitment, and I urge everyone involved with the club to strive towards restoring the club to its rightful place at the pinnacle of football and giving our loyal fans something to cheer.”
