Giovanni Solinas is the new Kaizer Chiefs coach!! The man was the coach at Free State Stars — Mninawa Ntloko (@ntlokom) July 13, 2018

The man did well at Stars but everyone will suddenly have amnesia — Rapz (@RapzeeGuru) July 13, 2018
What did Giovanni Solinas achieve when he was with Free State Stars? — Kedi (@kdee_Naks) July 13, 2018
I know many will look to ridicule Solinas appointment but the guy is a genuine coach, with a clear game modelling and style. — Ta-Gee (@Skhomo23) July 13, 2018
I remember when Kaizer Chiefs announced Stuart Baxter. Everyone was asking, "Who is he?" What has he won"? He's failed at Bafana, what can he do ac Kaizer Chiefs?" Don't make the same mistake again with Giovanni Solinas — Kokwele M. Phillix (@Matome_Kay) July 13, 2018

Giovanni Solinas has won nothing in his career, got a win percentage of less than 50%. He's the new Kaizer Chiefs Head Coach. Wow This Club will be the death of me — Garvey (@iAmKingducer) July 13, 2018
When is Giovanni Solinas resigning?#Amakhosi4Life— Ngijola ne'China (@Dbongz14) July 13, 2018
While Kaizer Chiefs signing Giovanni Solinas might seem underwhelming in that fans wanted a bigger name, he'd shown at Free State Stars that he's a good coach and knows the PSL. The success of Baxter at Chiefs had proven that you can't write a coach off so early @KaizerChiefs — Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) July 14, 2018
