Kaizer Chiefs have announced the appointment of former player and captain Patrick Mabedi as the new assistant coach.

Mabedi signed a two-year deal with Amakhosi to replace John Paintsil after the Ghanaian was sacked by Chiefs last week.

The Malawian-born former player was coaching National First Division side Cape Town All Stars before returning ‘home’ to Naturena.

Mabedi captained Chiefs from 2003-2006 before signing with Moroka Swallows.

“I am happy to be back home,” said Mabedi. “I look forward to making a contribution to the success of this great institution. This is a privilege. I wish to thank the club management for this opportunity.”
