Reasons why former Young Africans SC head coach Nasreddine Nabi’s deal to Kaizer Chiefs fell through are revealed.
Since the end of the 2022/2023 season, Nasreddine Nabi has been linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs after a second successful season at Yanga SC.

But the two parties could not reach an agreement despite the signs suggesting that Nabi is likely to become the club’s fifth head coach in as many years.
The club instead promoted Head of Technical and Development Team Molefi Ntseki to become the senior team head coach.
Replacing Arthur Zwane, who was demoted back to being an assistant coach alongside Dillion Sheppard.
With that said, we decided to look at the three reasons why Nabi did not get the job.
Amakhosi could not afford to meet Nabi’s requirements, as the Tunisian required to bring his own technical team.
They would have been forced to pay out most of the current technical team’s contracts to terminate their contracts, as well pay for the staff Nabi wanted.
Something that would have cost the club millions of rands to do.
The biggest stumbling block of them all is the then club’s head coach, Arthur Zwane.
Nabi did not want Zwane in his technical team while the club wanted and believed in the 49-year-old’s abilities.
His huge contract was also a huge factor in the club, deciding against naming as their head coach.
NABI SHARING PRIVATE ISSUES WITH THE MEDIA!
Naturena-based club likes to keep negotiations in-house until they are done to avoid media interference.
But he went to the media and discussed the conversations he was having with the club, leading to Chiefs management not being pleased with him.
Nabi is looking to move on from the failed Chiefs move, as he submitted his CV for the AS Rabat coaching job.
Meanwhile, clubs in Europe and Asia are also showing interest in him.
