Clear timeline, yay or nay this week!

Nasreddine Nabi and Kaizer Chiefs still seem to be edging closer to agreed terms, which could spell the end of Arthur Zwane’s head coach tenure.

According to a report from SABC Sport last week, Chiefs seem willing to accept a compromise in order to secure the services of Nabi, who has become their No 1 target in terms of a blockbuster new coaching appointment.

Nabi has now opened up about the possible move, and while he didn’t give much away, it’s been revealed that an answer can be expected before the end of the week.

“At this moment, it’s very difficult to give you any information,” he told TimesLIVE. First, we have a big respect for you and your media responsibility in this moment, but we continue the negotiation with the leadership of Kaizer Chiefs via my  agent and maybe in the next 58 hours we will be clear if we have finished everything.

“I can’t give details like that to you for respect of Kaizer Chiefs. I don’t want to speak about what is the problem in the negotiation. I’m sorry for that, my friend,” Nabi concluded.

Apparently Chiefs “have decided to replace their beleaguered incumbent Arthur Zwane ahead of the next season”, and are now willing to compromising when it comes to allowing Nabi to bring in at least some of his own support staff.

The club could be open to the option of the Tanzanian coach bringing up to two members of staff in his desired departments.

Increasingly, it seems that Zwane may not have a future with the senior team, while it remains to be seen what the future holds for Dillon Sheppard.
