Shaun Bartlett awaits Kaizer Chiefs settlement, fielding new coaching job offers


Ex-Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Shaun Bartlett will not be out of a job for long as offers flood in for his services while he awaits his settlement.

The former Bafana Bafana international was released by Chiefs following the sacking of head coach Ernst Middendorp.

Bartlett arrived at Chiefs on a two-year deal in December 2018 but had to follow the German coach out after the club failed to win the 2019/20 Absa Premiership title.

The 47-year-old coach refused to say much about his former employers as both parties are still finalising his settlement.

"Well I've got nothing at the moment, I'm just on holiday with my family," Bartlett tells

"Actually I'm still busy with them [Chiefs] so I can't really do interviews at the moment, so until the stuff is finalised I can't really do interviews. Those are personal things that I need to finalise with them regarding my contract."

Bartlett, who in 2015 helped Golden Arrows back to the Absa Premiership by winning the National First Division, says despite being flooded with offers, at the moment he is in no rush to make a decision.

"Ja there are offers, but like I said I'm not thinking about anything else now. I'm taking a break with my family because once I'm back in football, then I don't have time anymore, so I'm just enjoying my time with them now," he explains.

"Ja you will see me coaching next season, but I just don't know where. That's the only thing. I'm speaking to various people."
