Kaizer Chiefs will play Nasreddine Nabi’s old team Young Africans(Yanga) in a preseason friendly match next month.

Amakhosi went down 1-0 to Young Africans in a pre-season friendly in front of a capacity 60 000 crowd last year in a preseason match. The Soweto Giants looked poor in that match under Molefi Ntseki and never improved heading into the season.

Almost a year later, Kaizer Chiefs are set to play Yanga again but this year, they could have their former coach Nabi on the touchline.

“We will have a good pre-season, and we have already received invitations from a number of places, including South Africa. Kaizer Chiefs have invited us,” said Yanga president Hersi Said.
