Jessica Motaung has addressed the arrival of Amakhosi's new head coach, saying efforts were made to ensure the right manager was appointed.

She added that Nabi's passion and hunger for success made him stand out amongst other tacticians linked with the plum job. She said:

“We’re looking forward to his work, and the team that he’s assembled and also the younger players and the older players who’ve been part of the squad.
“We looked at a number of things, we looked for the right coach who has coached on the continent, who understands the Chiefs brand, who understands where we want to go.
"A coach who has got hunger and passion for success, passion for the Chiefs brand and a whole lot more."

Motaung thanked the club owner and sporting director for their extensive work in bringing Nabi to the Naturena. The club officials will hope that their recent revamp will lead them to titles next season.
