Chippa United Goalkeeper Coach Reveals Nwabali’s Dream Club

Chippa United Goalkeeper Coach Reveals Nwabali’s Dream Club

Chippa United goalkeeper coach, Sean Louw, has revealed that Super Eagles first choice Stanley Nwabali’s big goal before the 2023 African Cup of Nations was to join Kaizer Chiefs.

Nwabali, who played a key role in helping the Eagles reach the final of the AFCON has been the subject of interest from overseas teams.

But Louw reveals before the AFCON, all Nwabali spoke about was a move to Kaiser Chiefs.

“Like I said to you, between you and me his childhood dream was to always play for Kaizer Chiefs, but even me, my childhood dream was to play for Kaizer Chiefs, I don’t blame him,” Louw was quoted on SABC Sport.

“In the beginning of this season he wanted to play for Kaizer Chiefs, but I said to him before you speak to Kaizer Chiefs, first go to Afcon because you will win the Afcon and you will be so much more worth than at Kaizer Chiefs with all due respect,” Louw said.

Following his exploits at the AFCON, Nwabali started to attract offers from several clubs, one of which was Saudi Arabian Pro League side Al-Ettifaq FC, coached by England national team and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

Louw, who has previously worked at Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies, Banyana Banyana, and All Stars (NFD) as a goalkeeper coach, says this move was going to make a lot of sense.

“Sometimes I wish it was about me to be quite honest. I would love for him to join Steven Gerrard in Saudi Arabia, and I can give many reasons why, number one – it’s Arab money and number two you are coached by the legend of the game who is willing to understand how the game is being played now.”
