There were reports that Chiefs had identified an individual from German club FC Schalke 04 for this position, but a source close to the club told Phakaaathi that Khumalo is set to take up this role next season.
“The management feels that Doctor is the right man to take over the technical director’s job. He is a club legend and he knows Chiefs’ culture. With the club busy revamping their development structures, they believe that Doctor is the man who will be able to identify a young players who could fit into the club’s system,” said the source.
Khumalo is currently working as head coach Steve Komphela’s assistant, but there are reports that Komphela is looking to rope in Mandla Ncikazi as his assistant for next season.
Komphela and Ncikazi worked together at Maritzburg United last season.
