After signing Mark Mayambela from Orlando Pirates, Chippa United have now turned their attention to out-of-favour Kaizer Chiefs striker Abia Nale.
The Chilli Boys have been one of the busier teams during the transfer window as they look to make their debut season in the top-flight the first of many.
Chippa coach Farouk Abrahams confirms the interest in Nale, adding that he hopes to still land Erwin Isaacs from Bidvest Wits as well.
“The issue of Erwin Isaacs is now on hold after Wits appointed a new coach [Clive Barker]. We have to wait and see if that deal is still going to go through,” he tells KickOff.com.
“Our main focus now is to improve our performance and focus on our defence and up-front. We could have had five points more but we conceded soft goals. We have also been let down by poor finishing, though this is a problem all over the country, including Bafana Bafana.”
He adds: “We are working hard to rectify our mistakes and there is a lot of confidence in the camp. There is no doubt that we will retain our status next season.”
