Chiefs announced the former Free State Stars mentor’s appointment on social media. Fans were expecting a big name coach to pick up where Steve Komphela had left off, but Chiefs appointed a coach who is well-known in South African football circles.
Solinas, who has coached several clubs across Africa, is known for leaving clubs halfway through the season. The 50-year-old left Ea Lla Koto in a hurry due to personal reasons.
Chiefs fans took to social media to react to Solinas joining the Soweto Giants.
He better level up. We need his socks up and tight ✌. He need to impress us, we don’t trust him cause of his history. As we wait 🤔 pic.twitter.com/oR1IByF8e8
