Arthur Zwane’s Coaching Qualifications
Arthur Zwane first attended coaching courses to get himself equipped before embarking on a coaching journey. He earned CAF A license and UEFA B1 Diploma before he was appointed Kaizer Chiefs’ Multichoice Discki Challenge (MDC) team head coach.

He, however, prepared himself to embrace the challenges by taking things one step at a time. He believes it’s important to get coaching badges so that coaches will be giving the right information to the players. He further explained that if coaches don’t understand the game, the information they will be giving to the players would be more like setting them up for failure.
Having been a top player during his active career, Arthur Zwane was urged to go straight for a UEFA A license. He stated that he wasn’t in a hurry to be a first-team manager and desired to first help the young ones as the nation was lacking in developing players with confidence. Interestingly, after years of coaching young teams, the ex-midfielder was promoted to the position of first-team coach.
