Namibian football great Robert Nauseb was yesterday officially confirmed as the new Brave Warriors assistant coach and will replace Woody Jacobs, who recently resigned from that position last Thursday.  Nauseb was part of the Namibian 1998 African Cup of Nations team in Burkina Faso. 

The 46-year-old joined Chiefs from Civics in his homeland Namibia ahead of the 1997/98 season and went to win the Rothmans Cup and Bobsave Super Bowl before leaving to join Hellenic in 2001. After playing for Hellenic, the hard-working midfielder signed for Ajax Cape Town in 2002. Nauseb, whose highest pay cheque was R25 000 at the time, scored the biggest goal for Ajax in the last game of the 2002/03 season against Mamelodi Sundowns, to help the Urban Warriors avoid relegation.

Robert Nauseb has CAF B coaching license plus coaching experience that obtained at Sacred Heart High School in Observatory, Johannesburg and Euro Soccer academy coaching the under-15s in Edenvale. He also was an assistant coach to David “Major” Bright at Cape Town FC before took another an assistant coaching job along with Craig Rosslee. 

During yesterday’s press conference at Football House in Katutura, where Warriors interim head coach Bobby Samaria announced a 35-member squad invited to attend a training camp in preparation for the upcoming Cosafa Cup and the African Nations Championship (Chan) tournaments, it was also announced by the Namibia Football Association (NFA) that Nauseb will be taking over from the departed Jacobs as new assistant coach to Samaria and the association believes his experience will come in handy in guiding the Warriors.

Welcoming his appointment, Nauseb said he was excited about it, and that it will serve as an opportunity for him to help coach Samaria and the national team – but more importantly, Nauseb said it is a great opportunity for him to learn more from Samaria and gain exposure of gaining a gaffer at national team level.

“The biggest target is to help the team do well, but the biggest challenge now is to get the players up to standard with their fitness. Our target is to do well in both competitions – that is the Cosafa Cup and Chan. But otherwise, it is a great opportunity and I’m going to give all my best,” said Nauseb, who thanked the NFA for the opportunity.
