Sheppard – My Role At Chiefs
Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Dillon Sheppard has discussed his own role at the club, insisting he is 100% behind Arthur Zwane.
Sheppard was unveiled as Zwane’s assistant ahead of the current campaign after the duo had already worked in an interim capacity towards the end of last season.
Earlier in the week, the former Bafana Bafana midfielder was on media duty with Zwane feeling a bit under the weather and journalists used the opportunity to ask Sheppard about his own head-coach ambitions.
However, he dismissed the question in an instant and only addressed his role to help Zwane in his job.
“My role as coach Zwane’s assistant is to assist him in every possible way,” he explained.
“I am there for him as support. I need to be there for him, even when times are tough he knows I’ve got his back one hundred per cent, really, really important.
“He know, when he goes home at night, hopefully he can sleep well, knowing that he has got all the support that he needs in the world, because we know what this job is about, being the coach of Kaizer Chiefs and the pressures that come with it. With a little bit of the history now.
“He knows he’s got me 100% support him, 24/7, and whatever is needed, I’m there for that.”
On Sunday, Zwane is expected back on the sidelines, where Sheppard will once again be with him, as the duo will be eager to see Chiefs progress to the quarter-final of the Nedbank Cup for the first time since 2018/19.
