BREAKING: Huge update on the future of Nasreddine Nabi

Five things to know about Nasreddine Nabi

Nabi is vastly experienced

The Tunisian tactician is 57 years old and a veteran of numerous senior coaching roles. Included on his CV is stints at Al Ahly, Al-Hilal, Ismaily, Al-Merrikh and now most recently Young Africans in Tanzania.

He coached Yanga SC to back-to-back trebles

Not many managers in the history of the beautiful game can lay claim to winning a treble, let alone trebles in consecutive campaigns. Perhaps Nabi has outgrown his surroundings in Tanzania and is ready for the challenge at Chiefs.

Nabi favours a 4-2-3-1

Nabi is a proponent of the 4-2-3-1 and favours attacking football, evidenced by his side’s tally of 84 goals in 35 matches, which is a healthy return and one which will pique the interest of Chiefs fans.

73% win rate since the 2021-22 season at Yanga

Nabi is a winner, and his record in the past two campaigns proves it. A win-rate of 73% across all competitions is extraordinary, and it’s been backed up by loads of silverware.
