Kaizer Chiefs have announced Robertus Hutting as their technical advisor until the end of the season. 

The 62-year-old, who holds a Uefa Pro Licence, will work hand-in-hand with coach Steve Komphela and the rest of the coaches in the youth development, the club said. 

Hutting expressed his delight at joining the Amakhosi, and he's already looking forward to working with his new colleagues. 

“I am honoured to be here and will serve the club with pride,” Hutting told the club website.

“This is a special day for me. I have been following Kaizer Chiefs and South African football for a while and looking forward to working with coach Steve and the rest of the coaches here at Kaizer Chiefs,” he said. 

Hutting, who coached a number of clubs, including FC Wegberg-Beeck and Borussia Freialdenhoven among others, is banking on his 'competence, qualities and experience' to ensure that Amakhosi improve. 

“I believe my competence, qualities and experience will contribute to the improvement of the club,” he concluded.

According to the club, Komphela was part of the decision to bring Hutting on board, and the 50-year-old also took the opportunity to welcome the former Fortuna Sittard attacker at Naturena. 

“A hearty welcome to Rob and we look forward to his cooperation and contribution to Kaizer Chiefs,” Komphela said.
