Former Bafana Bafana striker Shaun Bartlett has been appointed as Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach with immediate effect.

Bartlett joins Chiefs on a two-and-a-half year deal and will assist recently-appointed coach Ernst Middendorp‚ who himself joined the club a few days ago on a similar contract length.

Chiefs sacked Italian Giovanni Solinas on Friday and will play their first game under the new coaching duo when they face Supersport United on Wednesday night.
