Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have urged football fans to celebrate the legacy of Kaizer Motaung by sending him their birthday wishes ahead of his 72nd birthday on Sunday, October 16.

Motaung founded the Glamour Boys in 1970 after returning from playing in the United States where he played as a striker for the Atlanta Chiefs of the North American Soccer League.

He created the side's name by combining his own first name and the team he played for in the NASL.

Since that time, the Amakhosi have gone to become arguably the biggest side in South Africa due to their success and popularity among supporters.

Motaung has previously spoken about the values Chiefs represent, saying, "We emphasised, through words and deeds, both on and off the field, that soccer was about comradeship, friendship and sportsmanship."

The Naturena-based side have since called on fans to send their birthday messages to their chairman.

Chiefs' official Twitter account said, "In October we celebrate the Chairman's birthday month. He will be turning 72 on the 16th of October. Send us your messages."

Amakhosi host Ajax Cape Town on Saturday, October 15 at Moses Mabhida Stadium. Kick-off is at 18:00.
