Kaizer Chiefs will unveil Nasreddine Nabi as their new manager soon. The Tunisian is bringing company with him.

Nabi to recruit Da Cruz

Fernando Da Cruz will join the Nabi revolution at Kaizer Chiefs, according to SABC Sport. 52-year-old Da Cruz has an interesting background, having played professional futsal for France, collecting 55 caps. From a coaching perspective, he’s taken assistant charge of Wasquehal in France and Mouscron in Belgium, before getting the top job at the latter in 2014. From there, he took charge of the Lille B side and ran scouting operations for a team famous for its recruitment of top talent and player sales with enormous profits. Most recently, he’s been the assistant at AS Far, Nasreddine Nabi’s club. Nabi is expected to officially sign a deal with Chiefs this week, and then we’ll certainly be hearing more about Mr Da Cruz, who has experience working with Nicolas Pepe and Eden Hazard.

According to UnplayableZA on X, Nasreddine Nabi has zeroed in on Tumisang Orebonye as his first potential signing as head coach at Naturena. The 28-year-old striker plays under Nabi at FAR Rabat and has 40 caps for the Botswana National team alongside Thatayaone Ditlhokwe. The prolific hitman has four goals and an assist from 15 league appearances in 2023-2024. That’s a healthy ratio of direct foal contributions.


FAR Rabat boss Nasreddine Nabi has reiterated his desire to ‘put on a good show’ for the supporters to enjoy and shared the secret to his team’s productivity in front of goal this term. They’ve scored 65 times in 30 matches, 17 more than any other side in the division. This revelation will be particularly pleasing for Kaizer Chiefs fans, who always demand entertaining, attack-minded football. The Glamour Boys only scored 25 times in 30 DStv Prem matches in 2023-2024. That’s an abysmal record that needs to change. Despite their free-scoring ways, FAR missed out on the league title by a single point on the final day of the season.
