Nasreddine Nabi pays R1.16m to Kaizer Chiefs!

Imperial leaders They are believed to have started their pre-season training in Naturena on Monday, as per previous reports.

The new era officially only begins with the new coach Nasreddine Nabi arrives at Chief’s post of his AS FAR obligations.

Nabi ready for Chiefs move

It is the worst kept secret that Nabi will join Chiefs next season. Things escalated quickly in this month of June. At the very beginning, Amakhosi managed to sift through a shortlist of many candidates. When May ended, it was believed that three coaches had a realistic chance of becoming the next Amakhosi mentor. Pitso Mosimanewho was considered the long-term favorite, and Portuguese coach Alexandre Santos stood next to Nabi for the role.

Once Chiefs made their decision to go for Nabi, they left no stone unturned. The club sent a representative of a senior official to Rabat to meet the Tunisian tactician. There they presented a vision and the prospect that the coach would convey to his own coaching staff. In addition, they agreed to conditions with AS FAR for their husband’s early release.

The following week, Moroccan reports confirmed that Chiefs had also agreed terms with Nabi. Now according to KickOff.com it is the coach himself, who had to pay a lump sum to get early release!

But not without paying a large fee,

“By agreeing to a deal with Chiefs that brings better benefits, Nabi has only activated a clause in his contract for his departure. Nabi will pay the army club two months’ salary from his pocket as compensation for terminating his contract. This is what ‘The Militarians’ would also have paid if the decision to cut ties had come from them. Such clauses are common in the game. Nabi earns 30,000 euros (approximately R582,000) gross at FAR Rabat, meaning the compensation from his pocket for coming out will be approximately R1.16 million.” Wrote the publication.

However, this should put a smile on Chiefs fans’ faces as it shows how much dedication he has to the cause. How happy are you with Khosi fans of Nabi’s action?
