Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly closing in on appointing Nasreddine Nabi as their new coach.

The FAR Rabat coach moved ahead of Alexandre Santos, the former Petro de Luanda coach, who had just won the league title with the Angolan giants.

The Tunisian coach has reportedly given Amakhosi two demands before they can proceed with a deal.

Nabi nearly became Chiefs coach last year but rejected a proposal to include Arthur Zwane as his assistant coach.

The Tunisian had just won the league title with Tanzanian giants Yanga SC and preferred to bring in his backroom staff, per SABC Sport.

The Soweto giants then hired Molefi Ntseki, who lasted 114 days before he was sacked. Cavin Johnson took over in an interim capacity and oversaw a dismal season in which the club finished 10th in the PSL.

According to The South African, Nabi has reportedly given Chiefs two demands to a delegation sent to Rabat to woo him recently.

First, he wants a clear picture of the Amakhosi project's future. Second, the current technical team will have to vacate the office to make way for his own.

Multiple reports have indicated a deal between the two parties is nearly finalised. Nabi will be tasked with helping the PSL giants recapture their former glory.

Nabi explains his tactics

Sports Brief also previously reported on Nabi explaining his tactics at FAR Rabat and how they became the best attack in the Moroccan top flight.

The former Young Africans coach said having elite attackers and midfielders is one reason they scored many goals. His attacking philosophy also helped.

What is Chiefs biggest problem?

Sports Brief also previously reported on former Chiefs captain, Tefu Mashamaite, underlining one major issue Kaizer Chiefs must resolve.

The former defender advised the club to create a culture that emphasises that players aren't always to blame when things do go wrong.
