JOHANNESBURG, July 31 – Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that coach Giovanni Solinas has received his work permit and will be sitting on the bench for the opening fixture of the new Absa Premiership season.
“We are happy that the coach has received his papers,” Amakhosi’s Football Manager Bobby Motaung confirmed on Tuesday.
“Solinas has been familiarising himself with the set-up and thanks to now having his work permit, he will have a chance to rally his troops from the bench, starting this weekend against Mamelodi Sundowns.”
Solinas recently signed a two-year deal to be in charge of the Glamour Boys.
Kaizer Chiefs will take on Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday in an Absa Premiership match, which is scheduled to take place at Pretoria’s Loftus Versfeld.
