Nabi MIGHT not land in Mzansi this week! Kaizer Chiefs to wait longer 

Kaizer Chiefs fans are anxiously waiting for Nasreddine Nabi confirmation as the new coach ahead of the new season.

The Tunisian has reportedly accepted an offer from the Glamour Boys to succeed Molefi Ntseki in an initial two-year deal. The Soweto giants had anticipated the tactician's arrival this week after overseeing AS FAR Rabat's Throne Cup semi-final game against MAS de Fes on Sunday.

After a 2-0 triumph, the military outfit will now have to wait for the outcome of the second semi-final game on Tuesday between Raja Athletic Club and MC Oudja.

Why Nabi MIGHT not join Amakhosi this week

The former Yanga SC coach has confirmed he will be in charge of the Moroccan outfit before leaving for Mzansi to lead Black and Gold.

“My greeting to the fans is out of love and not a farewell to the club; I hope to attend the Throne Cup final, God Almighty willing,” the 58-year-old said after helping the North Africans reach the domestic Cup final.

“‘We will be present in the final and we welcome any opponent who can advance to the last hurdle. I learned from friends of mine inside Raja some time ago about the final date and it was said that it will be the 30th of [June]. 

“Therefore, before I leave for Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa, to have my experience with them, I hope to guide The Royal Army [in the next game]. I will be crowned with them in the Throne Cup final.”

Chiefs already shaping up their technical team!

Fernando da Cruz – who was initially serving as AS FAR's Technical Director, is already in Mzansi to make way for the arrival of Nabi. The duo know each other well having worked together for some time. 

Former Mauritania goalkeeper trainer Ilyes Mzoughi has arrived in the country as well to help strengthen the department. Last season, Amakhosi suffered a great deal owing to blunders made by custodians, especially Brandon Petersen who has since been demoted in favour of Bruce Bvuma.

Muzi Maluleke, who was the club's conditioning coach, has been replaced by Majdi Safi who offered the same services to Wydad Casablanca and eventually Raja.
