Kaizer Chiefs want to add new talent

Nabi has set his eyes on three Mzansi-based stars, according to the tweet below:

A Briefly News source said the club, who announced Nabi as their new coach on Sunday, 7 July 2024, will be active in the market after they return from pre-season in Turkey.

The source said:

“Of course, there will be new additions to Kaizer Chiefs, but we cannot say who exactly will be joining and when. The new coach is spending time with the players in Turkey and once they return to South Africa, then the club will determine which departments need new faces. A club like Chiefs will always be linked with players.”

Chiefs fans want new players

Amakhosi supporters took to social media to pick players they want to see arrive at Naturena, while some believe the club is just window-shopping.
