Nale: Tough leaving Chiefs

Posted: 11 February 2013 Time: 03:01 pm

Abia Nale says leaving Kaizer Chiefs is one of the toughest decisions he had made, but he hopes his loan spell at Ajax Cape Town can reignite his career.

The 26-year-old moved to the Mother City after finding his opportunities limited at Chiefs, where he sat in the queue behind the likes of Bernard Parker, Lehlohonolo Majoro and Kingston Nkhatha.

"It was hard to leave Chiefs … a very tough decision," Nale tells KickOff.com. "But to be happy you need to play and the thing about not playing is it creates a negative attitude.

"So I just want to focus on what I have to do at Ajax; what happened in the past has happened. Now I'm in a better place and I want to be positive and focus here."

Despite his lack of game-time this season, Ajax were still willing to take a gamble on Nale; something that does not surprise the player.

"I wasn't surprised that Ajax made an offer for me; I was prepared and I'll always be prepared for anything that happens," he adds. "I'm looking forward to playing regularly and helping the team move away from the position they are in at the moment."

We understand that boy , keep your chin up and wear that Red & White Adidas with a positive atittude and use that as a step-stone to prove us all wrong.

I don't doubt your talent , you just need to step up your game a little bit.
Good luck boy

If you play well for Ajax in this 6 months , then that might pushed them to want to sign you and that might be a good opportunity for Kaizer Chiefs for a swap deal with Khama Billiat .

Mara Kickoff, is there no news from smaller clubs like pie city or sun clowns?? U always using the mighty Amakhosi to sell ur website. I heared Eto Mabena is planning to buy a tazz to go to training with after Lekgwathi increased the fare to ride in his cressida by 55%. Aparently this cressida was a gift from the chairman (thank u chairman) for winning the fair play award at the mice year end function. he was lucky to win after he kicked less balls than mahamutsa .

If RVP Mabena had done that, he would have stripped b*tt naked @ Soccer City and ran on the barricades ngezinzwane then demand the chairman to expedite a Barcelona move for him...

1st of all ur profile shows how obssed ur about chiefs, why don't u call urself treble something

2nd - all these treble people u named the is probably one person (he knows himself) with multiple accounts, so basically u have said nothing...but then again if i won a treble after 10 years of drought i would also call myself treble something...

Nale has all the talent and ability a player needs. Like Phala and Masango, all he needs to work on his confidence and play ball going forward at pace, taking on players. If he wants to play for a big club successfully he needs to look at May Mahlangu, Shabba and Segolola cause that's where his strenghts lie.
