Bartlett and Middendorp in the same bus

Mahikeng: Kazier Chief’s Football Club has added Shaun Bartlett to the bus leaving Naturena as the team bids farewell to their coaching staff. The team announced this decision just a day after the Soweto giants sacked head coach Ernst Middendorp. Chiefs said club Chairman KaizerMotaung‚ the Amakhosi’s board of directors and management agreed to an early termination of Bartlett’s contract.

“We would like to once again thank both gentlemen for their service to Kaizer Chiefs over the last 21 months,” Motaung said in a statement.

“We wish Shaun Bartlett all the best in his future endeavors.”

The former Bafana Bafana striker was appointed on a two-and-a-half year deal alongside Middendorp in December 2018. But losing out on the Absa premiership title despite the team doing well for a good part of the season was the last straw for Chiefs’ management.
