Serbian frontman Nurkovic joined from Slovakian side FK Pohronie and made his debut as a second-half substitute in the 2-0 Carling Black Label Cup defeat to Orlando Pirates on Saturday.

And the 27-year-old has revealed that he rejected offers from Saudi Arabia and Morocco to join the Glamour Boys.

“It was agent from Croatia, but honestly I was waiting for a good offer because I have amazing season behind me, not one but two,” the big striker says. 

I was waiting for good offers and there were good offers from Morocco and from Saudi Arabia. I was waiting and I told myself that something good is going to come, and then this agent called me and told me that one club from South Africa is interested in me. 

"When I found out that it’s Kaizer Chiefs I was happy, I was really happy. It’s the best club in Africa. I did not know a lot about South African football, but I knew Kaizer Chiefs. 

"I heard about South Africa for the first time during the 2010 World Cup when Serbia was here and I saw a lot of good stadiums.”
