Cape Town - Recently appointed Kaizer Chiefs technical adviser Rob Hutting says he must be given time to prove his worth, and that he has the qualifications to be a success.

The little known Dutch coach was appointed earlier this week despite his limited coaching experience in the professional game raising a few eyebrows.

The 62-year-old does hold a Uefa Pro licence which is regarded as one of Europe's highest qualifications, although he boasts little other pedigree.

Nonetheless, having signed a six-month contract with an option to extend thereafter, Hutting takes the view that he can deliver the goods at Naturena as adviser to the senior team and the youth academy.

He said, "I'm very positive and I know what the mission is. I will do my utmost best. I'm not the European who comes to explain how we play football. I'm here to help the club. We have a mission, very important mission.

"The only thing that I want to ask you is that don't kill the baby before it's born. You can choose whether you want an internet coach or a qualified coach. For me your question is OK, but I would prefer that you come after three months and ask the same question."

Chiefs next face Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership clash at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
