The Briton, a fan favourite at Chiefs, was first at the club between 2012-2015 and guided them to two league titles, a Nedbank Cup and MTN 8 triumph before resigning.

His immediate task is to try and take the Glamour Boys all the way in the CAF Champions League with his predecessor having guided the club to the semi-finals.
