Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane believes the club will eventually get it right with him for as long as they show the same patience Mamelodi Sundowns showed to Pitso Mosimane.

Mosimane arrived at Sundowns when they were underperforming in 2012 despite boasting some of the best players in the league at the time.

However, he eventually got it right but that was years after a period of hard work coupled with the backing from the Sundowns management.

At some point, Mosimane had to be escorted into the dressing rooms and bus by police as a section of Sundowns fans wanted him to leave the Tshwane giants due to a series of poor results.

Mosimane went on to win 11 major trophies for Sundowns, including five league titles, a CAF Champions League and CAF Super Cup among many others.

Now, Zwane believes Chiefs are in a similar situation, and the only solution is for the management to trust the process and be patient with him during this rebuilding phase.

Zwane is of the view that Mosimane built a solid foundation at Sundowns that made it possible for his successors to benefit from, saying there is continuity hence the success.

“I’m not worried [about my job security] because we have a plan as a club,” Zwane told reporters on Thursday.

“It’s a plan that needs to be executed. If you look back at how many times the club tried to get things right in recent years (with different coaches), it’s been a lot.”

“Whether you like it or not, we must do something. There are other teams we can refer to.”

“It talks about continuity. And that is everything in football when you look at where they (Sundowns) come from as a club,” he continued.

“They also had times where no one saw this thing becoming a beast, and it’s because of the patience and belief in the technical team that they (Sundowns coaches) succeeded.

“When the coach (Pitso Mosimane) left, there was still continuity,” added Zwane.
