Mmodi set to impress Nabi & hopes ‘new players bring luck and glory days back to Naturena’

Kaizer Chiefs are restructuring their technical team after a poor 2023/24 Premier Soccer League campaign.

Nasreddine Nabi is set to succeed Molefi Ntseki, with Fernando da Cruz – who worked with the Tunisian at AS FAR Rabat as the Technical Director, coming in as his assistant. Other notable changes are in the goalkeeping department where Ilyes Mzoughi has been introduced to train custodians.

Muzi Maluleke, who was the club's conditioning coach, has been replaced by Majdi Safi who offered the same services to Wydad Casablanca and eventually Raja.

It explains why Pule Mmodi is convinced things will change for the better at Naturena, and the best days are coming.

‘The rest is over, I'm looking forward to bring the Glory days back' – Mmodi

The Glamour Boys reported back for pre-season on Monday, June 24, with Mmodi among the players who resumed. In his debut season at Amakhosi, the 31-year-old scored four goals and provided as many assists in the league.

“The rest is over, it's time for me to go and do what I can do, the best for my team and I'm looking forward to the new season,” the attacker said as quoted by SABC Sport.

“I think I am ready for the changes in the team; also playing with other new players makes me hopeful. I hope they can bring luck to the team for the new season.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to [the new changes], I believe in myself and I think I'm going to get game time in this new season. I'm looking forward to bringing the glory days to Naturena. My targets for this season are to score as many goals as I can and make the team win the trophy. I am willing to do better than last season.”

Amakhosi have not yet confirmed any releases or arrivals; they are most probably waiting for the arrival of Nabi.

It is interesting to see the changes the new team will bring on board as they aim to end the nine-year trophy drought.
