SAGA OVER? Kaizer Chiefs finally select their new manager


Kaizer Chiefs have identified their prime managerial target and are in advanced negotiations to thrash out a deal.


Kaizer Chiefs land on Nasreddine Nabi

According to Soccer-Laduma, Chiefs are in advanced talks with Tunisian tactician Nasreddine Nabi to become their next head coach.

“You know there are other things which both parties need to agree on and that is what was discussed today. I can’t say how far it went today but the deal is very close at the moment. Coach Nabi has his own people who he wants to bring and the team is also providing some technical team members and that’s what they have to agree and compromise on. He wants his own assistant coach, goalkeeper coach and fitness trainer. I think if they can cross that bridge then the deal will be as good as done. But honestly speaking, the talks with coach Nabi are at an advanced stage now,” said the source.

WHY KAIZER CHIEFS WANT NABI SO BADLY

SERIAL WINNER

Tunisian Nasreddine Nabi steered his old side Yanga SC, astonishingly, to back-to-back trebles. The 58-year-old is no stranger to success. He’s in pole position to claim another league title this term, with Botola Pro 1 side FAR Rabat in Morocco. They’re two wins away from the domestic crown but have Raja Casablanca breathing down their necks, just a point behind.


Former Yanga SC boss Nasreddine Nabi has reiterated his desire to ‘put on a good show’ for the supporters to enjoy and shared the secret to his team’s productivity in front of goal this term. This revelation will be particularly pleasing for Kaizer Chiefs fans, who always demand entertaining, attack-minded football. The Glamour Boys only scored 25 times in 30 DStv Prem matches in 2023-2024. That’s an abysmal record.


WHAT’S THE NEXT MOVE?

Chiefs’ transfer plans for the 2024-2025 campaign are up in the air but they’ll have a new man at the helm. His first take, whoever he happens to be, will be to trim the squad of underperforming high earners. A finish inside the top eight is imperative.
