Kaizer Chiefs sprang a surprise on Friday when they announced that Giovanni Solinas will be their new head coach from next season.

With lots of rumours going around the country they eventually chose Italian Solinas, who was formerly with Free State Stars in the Premier Soccer League. 

Chiefs fans have spent the week waiting for news of a coach and Chiefs decided to use social media with Twitter and a “live” posting on their Facebook page to announce the Italian as the new coach.
