The 62-year-old will play an advisory role and help with the coordination of the two technical teams, working with Coach Steve Komphela and his counterparts in the youth development.

“Monday was a special day for me. I am happy and honoured to be here. There is tremendous energy in the club. I want to work 24/7.” “I came to serve the Club and bring all my experience,” says Robertus ‘Rob’ Hutting.

Earlier, Chiefs confirmed the first officially training session for their newly-signed striker Leonardo Castro.
