Kaizer Chiefs have finally let out one of the worst kept secrets in South African football when they confirmed the appointment of Nasreddine Nabi as the new club head coach.

Chiefs made the announcement on Sunday evening.

"We are delighted to welcome coach Nasreddine Nabi to the Kaizer Chiefs family. We are happy to have you with us, coach," Chiefs said in their brief statement.

Nabi steered Rabat to second place in the tough Moroccan Botola top flight league in 2023-24. They ended with a 2-0 win in their derby against FUS Rabat but Raja's 3-0 away victory against away Mouloudia preserved their single-point lead.

He has been tasked with restoring the Chiefs to the top of South African football after falling off in recent years.

Chiefs finished 10th in the league last season, and the club, arguably the biggest in the country, haven't lifted any silverware since winning the back in 2014/15.
