Why Chiefs Risk Losing Nazaré

Kaizer Chiefs risk losing trialist Jardel Nazaré if they don’t act quickly to tie down the Portuguese-born defender, the Siya crew has learnt.

The Glamour Boys confirmed on Tuesday that the Sao Tome international was at their Naturena base and being monitored closely by coach Gavin Hunt as he looks to beef up his squad next season with the FIFA ban being lifted.

Indications are that the Amakhosi technical team has been impressed by Nazaré, who has been training with the first team for about a week now and featured in a friendly match against the club’s DStv Diski Challenge outfit recently.

But it’s understood if Chiefs are keen on getting a deal over the line, then they will have to move fast – Siya sources have informed the crew the left back has also attracted interest from the Portuguese second division as well as Spain. 

And he is quite familiar with that part of the world having been developed there as a teenager playing youth football before he moved to countries like Lithuania and Georgia.

Nazaré is currently unattached, which opens the door for Chiefs to sign him without spending a cent in transfer fees.

The 26-year-old, however, will not wait forever, especially if he has suitors elsewhere, though the Premier Soccer League is probably more appealing and presents a new challenge.

Should he be signed, this would leave doubts over the futures of Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya and Yagan Sasman, who can play in a similar position but have not been part of Hunt’s plans at Chiefs throughout the 2021/22 season.
