Soli­nas – Never Chiefs’ first choice…

Soccer Laduma - - Siyag Bhoza -

Kaizer Mo­taung, speak­ing to the me­dia in Sep­tem­ber, gave some in­sight into the hir­ing process that went on at Na­turena, ad­mit­ting that Soli­nas wasn’t their first choice when it came to ap­point­ing a head coach.

He said, “He wasn’t top of the list, I must con­fess. But we’ve lost one or two very good ones for ob­vi­ous rea­sons at the time, be­cause it’s not so easy for any team to get top coaches in the con­ti­nent.

“Be­cause you also have to com­pete against the Arab coun­tries. I can tell you two coaches that should have come here – the first one we missed (by) just two days, when we had come to an agree­ment he had to go be­cause he was of­fered a job in Qatar. And they are talk­ing big dol­lars there, you can’t com­pete.”
