Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly bringing in a French-Portuguese coach to assist Nasreddine Nabi.

Nabi is heavily tipped to join Amakhosi as their head coach end of the month. The Tunisian mentor is still wrapping up his work with FAR Rabat in Morocco before flying down to South Africa.

According to SABC Sport, Fernando Da Cruz is set to join Nabi’s technical team at Kaizer Chiefs.

“SABC Sport has established that Kaizer Chiefs are set to unveil French-Portuguese mentor Fernando Da Cruz as a member of their technical team,” the publication wrote.

“It’s not the first time the 51-year-old former FAR Rabat technical director has been linked with a move to Naturena, having been in talks with the Soweto giants as a replacement for Arthur Zwane a year ago.Da Cruz is now expected to arrive in Johannesburg this week to begin to lay the groundwork for incoming coach Nasreddine Nabi.”

According to SABC Sport, Nabi and Da Cruz have not worked together before.

“It’s believed Nabi has insisted on Da Cruz being part of his technical team after being impressed by his work with FAR, where he succeeded the Frenchman at the start of the 2023/24 season,” said the publication.

Nabi to Kaizer Chiefs appears to be a done deal with the club resuming training end of the month. Recently Nabi confirmed that Chiefs offered him a contract but he also dropped a bombshell saying the Soweto giants were not the only club interested in his services.

“The South African offer was not the only one, but rather I received several offers. But I will have a meeting with the team (Rabat) president (Mohamed Haramou) to talk about this issue,” Nabi said.

AS FAR bosses appear to have given Nasreddine Nabi the green light to join Kaizer Chiefs. For now, the Tunisian coach has a semi-final to prepare for this weekend.
