Amakhosi had already wrapped up the Premiership crown with three games to spare and adding to their MTN8 title success in September.

The champions signed off in a fitting manner after beating Chippa United 2-0 on the final day of the season on Saturday.

The result not only reaffirmed their billing as top-flight champions, it also added to Glamour Boys' league points record (69), while making it 21 wins in a season, beating the previous record set by Mamelodi Sundowns last term.

Speaking after this weekend's win, Motaung said: "This is Chiefs' culture, we doing what we did in the earlier years, but the way we did it now is very special.

"To win it with three games to go, just like Chelsea did by the way and Bayern Munich, and of course the grand finale today was special.

"We create challenges for ourselves; obviously next season and the seasons to come we have to do a lot better.

"It's just unfortunate that we finished with 69 points, I hope we would have made to 72 to tie in with our 70th birthday."
