Cape Town – Kaizer Chiefs Chairman and founder, Kaizer
Motaung, hopes that the club features in the FIFA Club World Cup by the time he
Following his 70 birthday last month [October 16] Motaung
admits that his passion lies within Amakhosi’s youth academy.
“I’d like to see Kaizer Chiefs – especially the youth
academy because that is where my heart is right now – having produced players
not only for Bafana Bafana but players who have actually become top world
players,” said Motaung in the November issue of KickOff Magazine.
“I want to see Chiefs becoming that kind of factory, a conveyor
belt of players for the world stage.
“If I do get to 100, I wish that we will also have played
five-six times in the FIFA Club World Cup.”
Meanwhile, Motaung admits that without “luck” Amakhosi would
not have been the team it has become over the past forty years.
“It’s a combination of hard work and luck. But luck is a
by-product of hard work,” says one of the longest standing members of the
executive committee of PSL and SAFA.
“Like the best golfer in the country [Gary Player] used to
say, ‘The harder you train, the luckier you get’.”
