Downs To Sneak Khan From Under Chiefs’ Noses?
Mamelodi Sundowns Could Challenge Kaizer Chiefs For Farouk Khan
Mamelodi Sundowns could make a move on Kaizer Chiefs coaching target, Farouk Khan, as the Amakhosi take their time in tying down the experienced youth mentor.
The Siya crew reported last year that Chiefs had earmarked Khan as one of the people they hoped to lure to Naturena to help revitalise their youth academy and that they wanted him to play a role in creating the Glamour Boys of the future.
However, with months having passed without anything being finalised, the crew have been informed that one of the club’s biggest rivals could make a move to sneak him from under their noses.
As reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, there is interest from Masandawana in working with Khan going forward, and they want him on board as a consultant.
Siya sources explained that Patrice Motsepe has lots of respect for the Stars of Africa Academy director and wants him to help train, nurture and educate future Brazilians.
The crew will keep an eye on Khan’s situation in the coming months, and it appears he is not short of options as Chiefs, Sundowns and also the South African Football Association are eager to work with him.
