Amakhosi announced they have terminated the Italian mentor’s two-year contract effectively ending his reign as Chiefs coach.

Assistant coach Patrick Mabedi was also released by the club, the former Malawian international joined the club during coach Steve Komphela’s tenure at Naturena.

Chiefs have since hired coach Ernst Middendorp as Solinas’ replacement. Middendorp returns for his second stint at Chiefs.

Some fans felt Solinas wasn’t the right coach to lead a club as big as Chiefs.
