Nabi Completes ASFAR Exit As Chiefs Activate Release Clause

Kaizer Chiefs-bound head coach Nasreddine Nabi has completed his exit from ASFAR with the $60,000 (R1.1 million) release clause activated.

Nabi oversaw his final game with ASFAR on Monday when they lost 2-1 to Raja Athletic Club in the Throne Cup final ending his one-season stint in Morocco.

The Tunisian who became the first non-Moroccan African to lead the league is now poised to meet up with the Chiefs squad in Turkey for pre-season.

This due to the delay of his exit over the commitments with ASFAR, whom he had one year left on his contract before they settled the termination agreement on Tuesday in Rabat.

Chiefs have been in talks with the Tunisian for over a month over his imminent appointment and he confirmed to media in Morocco, when asked about his decision.

“I chose the Kaizer Chiefs offer because it is an honour for me to supervise a team of their stature,” he stated after the Throne Cup final.

Nabi like the rest of his technical staff, has agreed a two-year deal with an option to extend with Amakhosi, who confirmed their camp in Europe begins on Thursday, 4 July.
