Nigerian star Stanley Nwabali was pushing for a move to Kaizer Chiefs, his current coach has revealed!

The Chippa United goalkeeper has enjoyed an incredible season, which included an Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) silver medal.

Nwabali also managed to keep 11 clean-sheets for Chippa United in the South African top-flight.

The 2023 Afcon Golden Glove contender has long been linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs. And now, his current goalkeeper coach Sean Louw has dropped somewhat of a transfer bombshell!

Nwabali wanted Kaizer Chiefs move last year – Sean Louw

“Like I said to you, between you and me his childhood dream was to always play for Kaizer Chiefs, but even me, my childhood dream was to play for Chiefs, I don’t blame him,” Sean Louw told SABC Sport.

“In the beginning of this season he wanted to play for Kaizer Chiefs. But I said to him before you speak to Chiefs, first go to Afcon because you will win the Afcon and you will be so much more worth than at Chiefs with all due respect.”

In other news, former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Ntokozo Sikhakhane has urged the club to release one of their struggling midfielders.

Sikhakhane, a midfielder who wore the Amakhosi jersey between 2005 and 2007, believes Siyethemba Sithebe should return to his former club, AmaZulu.

Sithebe joined the Glamour Boys at the beginning of last season; however, he’s struggled to get going at the mighty Amakhosi.

With a cloud of uncertainty hovering over his Kaizer Chiefs career, Sikhakhane believes Sithebe simply isn’t good enough for the Glamour Boys.

Chiefs urged to release Sithebe

“They can release him. In games that he has played for Kaizer Chiefs, there’s nothing special he has done,” Sikhakhane told FARPost.

“And I still believe that he’s not the top midfielder; he’s just a player. But because Chiefs, they just sign any player. Once you shine at Santos, they bring you in; therefore once you shine at AmaZulu, they bring you.

“They don’t look at whether you’re going to fit in their style or in their structure. So, for Sithebe, he hasn’t been playing for two years, and he can’t prove himself in the last ten games. What was he doing all along? I think he’d do well at AmaZulu. I’d also advise him to go back.”

Final two Kaizer Chiefs fixtures revealed

Chiefs host Polokwane City on Saturday. They then travel to the Mother City to face Cape Town Spurs on 25 May for their final match of the season.
