Chiefs look to be pressing ahead with their club targets, while they wait to announce their new coach


If widespread reports are to be believed, Chiefs are set to announce Nasreddine Nabi as their coach. If his history is anything to go by, he is expected to bring a wealth of attacking impetus to the Amakhosi side. This will be very welcomed by their fans, who have seen their side struggle to score, or even create. This despite adding the likes of Ranga Chivaviro, Ashley du PreezJasond GonzalezChristian Saile and Caleb Bimenyimana in two seasons.

Bimenyimana was released by the club at the start of the season. Saile, who was believed to have been skating on thin ice, was given another chance. New strikers Chivaviro and Gonzalez scored just four goals between them, none coming from the Colombian. Saile was able to produce flashes with four. Du Preez top scored among the group with six.

With none of those numbers promising nor being the standard that Chiefs require, their pursuit of another striker is no surprise. They have been linked with Lebo Mothiba, Andy Boyeli as well Iqraam Rayners. Two weeks ago, Mothiba was believed to be a target, who then came out and dismissed the opportunity of playing locally.

Last week, this publication reported that Mothiba was in fact, spotted at the Chiefs training ground. Now according to Soccer-Laduma, negotiations are underway between the two parties.


“They are still talking. It’s not a done deal but negotiations are underway. Doubts are still there because he has just recovered from injury but they are expecting a final decision in the next few days. The team wants experienced strikers who can work with the youth and help the team going forward. And they feel Lebo (Mothiba) could be that player at the moment,” said a source to the publication.

That sounds like a very encouraging update for Chiefs fans who want to see Mothiba through the door.
