Kaizer Chiefs will not be snatching Helmy Gueldich from Orlando Pirates, a Moroccan reporter has clarified.


Moroccan journalist Ahmed Adala previously reported that the Kaizer Chiefs-bound Tunisian coach, Nasreddine Nabi, will join Amakhosi will his own technical team from North African, including an unnamed Tunisian Fitness and Condition coach.

“Last season, Nasreddine Nabi was very close to taking control of Kaizer Chiefs! This time it’s the right one,” Adala reported via X.

“Nabi, 2nd in the Moroccan championship with AS FAR (one point behind champion Raja), will be Kaizer’s coach next season.

“The Tunisian, Champion of Tanzania and finalist of the 2023 CAF Cup with Young Africans, winner of the same competition while coaching AC Leopards in 2012, will first finish the season with his current club in Morocco before leaving in South Africa.

“Nabi will be accompanied in his new mission by Khalil Ben Youssef, Ilyes Mzoughi and a Tunisian physical trainer. AS FAR will play in the semi-final of the Coupe du Trône against Maghreb Fez in a few days,” the reporter concluded.

Adala has since delivered another report to confirm that Gueldich will not leave Pirates to reunite with Nabi at Kaizer Chiefs.

“Dear Kaizer Chiefs fans. No, Helmy Gueldich, who’s actually the physical trainer of Orlando Pirates will not leave his club to join Kaizer Chiefs. Helmy Gueldich have a contract with Orlando till June 2026.”


Bless Njabulo Ngcobo. The Kaizer Chiefs star visited his local school to sponsor school shoes and sanitary pads.

Training for the 2024/25 season will only start in July. Meanwhile, Kaizer Chiefs’ 30-year-old defender Ngcobo is using his free time to give back to his community. The Folweni-born star donated school shoes and sanitary pads to the pupils at Mthwalume in Ugu District Municipality in the KwaZulu-Natal province. – CHECK OUT THE IMAGES HERE.


Staying with Ngcobo, it is the second week of June and the player’s deal is ending on the 30th. His agent, Sboniso Ngubane, has sent out a second warning to Kaizer Chiefs. Ngubane previously indicated that Amakhosi’s delay have forced him to talk to AmaZulu.

“Kaizer Chiefs is a professional club, they communicate about their intentions. Unfortunately, they have not said anything about Njabulo Ngcobo,” Ngubane previously told SABC Sport. “We are in talks with different clubs in the DStv Premiership, including AmaZulu FC,” he added.

Meanwhile, the agent has given a new update: Sekhukhune United are keen to sign Ngcobo after his deal with Kaizer Chiefs expires.

“When SABC Sport contacted his manager Sboniso Ngubane on Sunday, he did confirm talks with Sekhukhune United, but refused to give away much regarding the player’s next move,” the report said.

“”We are still negotiating with them,” Ngubane told the public broadcaster’s sports desk,” the report added. “The final decision is expected to be announced before the end of June, with Chiefs also set to make pronouncements regarding changes to their squad, including a new coach.”
