Kaizer Chiefs will have a new head coach soon and they hope it ushers in a successful era. The Tunisian tactician has also been making some positive sounds.

Nasreddine Nabi advises the board to sign a striker

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 goal contributions. The player will also cost absolutely nothing as he joined FAR on a six-month loan deal. If he hits the ground running and puts the ball in the net, Amakhosi fans will start loving Nabi for his talent ID abilities.

Nabi still has several key dates remaining as the FAR Rabat boss. The team has cup commitments in the Moroccan Throne Cup semi-finals on 23 June and potentially the final on 06 July. An announcement could be made as early as the 23rd though depending on the result. Chiefs must still buy out the final year of Nabi’s contract with FAR which expires in June 2025. A small price to pay?

Prepare to be entertained

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.

Nasreddine Nabi was born in Monastir, Tunisia in 1965 and has dual Tunisian and Belgian citizenship. Vastly experienced, he’s held head coaching roles in Libya, Sudan, Egypt, Italy, Tanzania and Morocco.


Having got to grips with African football, especially in the North, Nasreddine Nabi will have plenty of tactical nous in his toolbox. Amakhosi have been crying out for a man with a CV as impressive as this on the continental stage.
