It is believed that Chiefs had always wanted to appoint a senior coach, even with initial appointment of Zwane. The club started their search internally and offered former Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki the opportunity. He reportedly turned down the opportunity, in favour of his current duties, where he oversees all of the footballing matters at both junior and senior level at the club.

This publication also reported that Chiefs also considered making an approach for experienced coach Cavin Johnson. During that process, the Glamour Boys were also thought to have considered an approach for Mngqithi. His agent shot down those rumours saying he had one year left on his contract at Sundowns so nothing seemed to come from that. As it stands, they are believed to be actively in dialogue with Nabi, and having seen him part ways with Yanga, he remains a big possibility to take over. Now which much speculation surrounding his situation with Amakhosi, the Tunisian mentor has finally spoke out about his situation this publication reported on Sunday.

Nabi confirmed that an answer on his talks with Chiefs will be known early this week, giving a 58 hour time frame. That time frame has now lapsed and mysteriously the Mngqithi to Chiefs rumours have again resurfaced and very strongly! According to Soccer-Laduma he could even be announced their new coach THIS week!

Chiefs ditch Nabi for Mngqithi?

“Siya sources indicated that the Glamour Boys (Chiefs)  feel he (Mngqithi) could be the perfect fit and have approached his handlers with the view to try and negotiate a release from the Brazilians (Sundowns) and negotiate an amicable termination of his contract.” Wrote the publication.

This news will certainly come as a shock to many Chiefs fans who might’ve already buried the possibility of Mngqithi coming to the club ahead of the next season. In their minds, they had already accepted Nabi as the man who was set to lead them back to their glory days.
