Over the last few weeks the ever-increasing signs seem to point towards long-time target Nasreddine Nabi now being poised to become the new coach at Kaizer Chiefs.

After a lengthy search for the team’s next head coach, various names have been linked to the top job at Naturena, with many fans clamouring for Kaizer Chiefs to go ‘all in’ for Pitso Moismane.

Rumours suggested there were possibly some tentative talks under way, but it’s never seemed that they accelerated to an advanced stage.

In an interview on Sports Night Amplified, Mosimane has now effectively confirmed that any move to Chiefs is not in the works right now.

“Everywhere I go, everybody would ask me. But I’m a professional. I will not use that to put Kaizer Chiefs under stress over these things. It is not fair, because we don’t know what is happening, what are they thinking and what is their vision,” said Mosimane.

“Let’s give them a chance,” he added. “They will show you the plan; I mean, they are working on it – they are a big club.”

Pitso Mosimane to Kaizer Chiefs is a no-go

Pitso Mosimane last coached in South Africa when he was in charge of Mamelodi Sundowns, having been at the helm of Masandawana during a memorable stint between 2012 and 2020.

The veteran coach is now once again looking for his next project after Abha Club were relegated from the Saudi Pro League (SPL).

“It is incredibly disappointing to come so close and fall short,” Mosimane said in a statement put out by the agency that represents him, MT Sports.

“I am proud of how the players responded to the challenge and fought until the end. Their commitment and heart have been extraordinary and though we did not achieve our goal we can hold our heads high for the effort and progress made.

“Thank you to the Abha Club board, management and fans — they have been pillars of strength throughout this challenging season.

“The learnings from this experience will make us better coaches and players.”

Will Amakhosi soon unveil new coach?

This week there has been some noteworthy news as reliable source Unplayable reports that Nabi “will be allowed to leave Moroccan club AS FAR after their cup semi-final against MAS Fes on 23 June.”

In addition, the Tunisian coach has apparently also been granted permission to assemble his own support staff, and could soon be heading to South Africa to complete his move to Chiefs.
