Ex-Chiefs midfielder earns coaching role at ABC Motsepe side Summerfield

A former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder has been roped into the technical team of the ABC Motsepe League side Summerfield Dynamos after retiring last season.

Summerfield are competing in the KZN ABC Motsepe League stream A. They have had a good start to the new season as they sit second on the table after collecting 12 points from six games.

They have appointed the Chiefs legend and their former midfielder Sandile Zuke as the assistant coach to the club’s head coach Claude Tarrin. The 36-year-old retired last season having spent two seasons with the club in the third-tier. 

Zuke also had stints with Golden Arrows, Bidvest Wits, Chippa United, Uthongathi FC, and Mpumalanga Black Aces. He joined Summerfield after parting ways with the Eastern Cape side Bizana Pondo Chiefs FC in the 2020/21 campaign.

The former midfield maestro was part of the Summerfield squad that represented the KZN province in the ABC Motsepe League National Playoffs in June 2022.

“Initially, he joined us as a player two seasons ago, and this season he has become the assistant coach,” Summerfield team manager Terrence Subramani confirmed Zuke’s position to FARPost.

“Him being a professional player, having played at the highest level, brings a lot of experience discipline-wise, dedication – especially when coming to assist the young players”.


“Well, there is no mandate. He is a professional, he knows what he is doing, and he took a chance to get his CAF C license and he wants to get into coaching.

“I’m sure he knows what he needs to and knows what to bring to the team – there’s nothing I could have told him. Being a disciplined player, he is somebody you can rely on,” he added.
