Latest Nabi Update

With Kaizer Chiefs awaiting the arrival of new head coach Nasreddine Nabi, the date for his final ASFAR match has now been set.

Nabi and ASFAR will face Josef Zinnbauer’s Raja Athletic Club in the Throne Cup final after missing out on the Botola Pro title by just one point.

While first assistant coach Fernando da Cruz and goalkeeper coach Ilyes Mzoughi already arrived in South Africa on Sunday, fitness coach Majdi Safi was expected the next to arrive.

Meanwhile, Nabi arrival will still take a bit longer, but Amakhosi now have a date to look forward to, as the Royal Moroccan Football Federation confirmed the Throne Cup final will be held on Monday, 1 July at the Grand Stadium in Agadir.

While some reports had stated Nabi would already leave ASFAR after the semi-final, the Tunisian tactician himself has stated he will be in charge of the game.

“This is not my last match,” he had said on Sunday evening after the semi-final.

“The final match is still approaching us. Therefore, I am still continuing [and am contracted] with my team to the final.”

Nabi is expected to travel to South Africa after the final to complete his move to Naturena, with the club expected to make official announcements soon.
