Kaizer Chiefs have parted ways with assistant coach John Paintsil.

Paintsil's contract was due to expire in June 2018.

Steve Komphela brought Paintsil to Amakhosi when he was appointed head coach two years ago, having worked with the ex-Ghana international at former club Maritzburg United.

Chiefs released a statement, which reads: 'Kaizer Chiefs and John Paintsil have come to an agreement to terminate his contract as the assistant coach of the Club with effect from 6 June 2017. His contract was due to expire in June 2018.

'Both parties have signed a separation agreement, the terms of which are confidential.

'The club thanks John for his contribution and wish him well for his future endeavours.'
